Tick Diseases in the Dog
Horse & Hound Veterinary Services has an in-house blood test to screen dogs for Lyme disease, Anaplasmosis, and Ehrlichiosis - 3 distinct tick-transferred diseases. This test is very simple and only requires a tiny sample of blood and 8 minutes of your time for the results! You will know if your dog has any of these 3 diseases before leaving our clinic. If your dog is lethargic, stiff, lame, feverish or has shown behavioral changes - let's test for Lyme disease which is SO prevalent here in Knox County, Maine. Medications are available to treat all tick-borne diseases. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 557-5669.
