What you need to know about Lyme disease and testing for it in pets article What to do if your pet tests positive for Lyme Disease and you’re not sure if you should contact the vet or have your pet vaccinated?1.
Diagnosis and treatmentFirst of all, you need a tick bite.
The tick bite is caused by a tick that carries the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria and is the first symptom of Lyme Disease.2.
How to treat itThe most common treatment for Lyme is to get the tick bite treated with antibiotics and get the bacteria removed from the body.
But this treatment can be risky and can also lead to complications.3.
Can I test for Lyme in my pet?
The CDC says that there are no specific tests for Lyme.
But they do recommend tick bite testing as a way to detect the infection.
They also recommend tick testing for dogs and cats to help track the infection in the family.
But you can’t test your pet if you haven’t had Lyme in the last 12 months.
You’ll have to do it on your own, at the vet’s office, at a vet’s clinic or by contacting a veterinarian.4.
When to testMy vet recommends testing on a pet within 24 hours of a tick biting or within three days after a tick bites.
You can test your dog or cat as early as 6 months.5.
How long will it take to find out if your pets is Lyme?
It can take a few weeks for the results to come back.
If your pet has Lyme disease, your vet will take a test for it.
But the vet will test for the bacteria in your pet’s saliva and test for antibodies to Lyme and Borrelias in the urine and stool.
If the antibodies are negative, the dog or pet is unlikely to have Lyme.
If you can see positive antibodies in your dog’s or cat’s urine or stool, you’ll have Lyme disease.6.
When can I expect the results?
Your vet will probably take your pet into the vet for a tick test.
The tests can take up to three weeks.7.
How do I know if I have Lyme?
The most effective test is a tick sting test.
If an infected tick bites your pet, the blood in the pet’s mouth will show signs of Lyme disease infection.
If that blood is infected, your pet might have Lyme Disease (if they’re healthy).
If that doesn’t show up on the blood test, your dog, cat or dog’s companion will have Lyme (if healthy).
If you do test positive for Borrelial infection, the vet may perform a blood test to see if the bacteria is in your blood.
If it is, your animal is likely to have a positive test.
You should test your animal at least once every 6 months or every two years.
If both tests are negative and your pet is positive, your veterinary vet will perform a tick biopsy to see whether your pet got Lyme from a tick or an animal infected with Lyme.
If your animal has Lyme, the test will tell you whether or not your pet will need to be treated with medication.
But treatment won’t be effective if your animal hasn’t been tested.
You may also have to have your animal vaccinated against Borreliosis and other tick-borne diseases to help prevent Lyme disease from spreading.

How can I get the Borresulfame K in my dog?
Borrelia sp. are a family of bacteria that cause Lyme disease in humans.
They are also found in deer, elk, turkey, rabbit, and guinea pig.
Borresulfames are a common ingredient in pet foods and some veterinarians prescribe them as a pet antibiotic for dogs.
However, because of the risk of Borresphages spreading, most pet owners are unlikely to take their pets for an antibiotic test.
Instead, they’ll be encouraged to get an immunization program.
