Lyme disease affects both humans and animals making it a zoonotic disease. It is the most commonly reported vector- borne illness in the United States according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Lyme is transmitted through tick bites and can cause serious health issues for your pet. Animals that are infected with Lyme usually do not have symptoms until 3- 5 months at which time the disease has already thrived in the body.
Using reliable tick- preventative products can aide in keeping your pets healthy!
