Canine Lyme Disease in Midcoast Maine

Horse & Hound Veterinary Services offers blood testing and vaccination protocols to protect your dog from the deadly Lyme Disease (Borreliosis). Spring is here and this is the best time to get your pet protected from tick bites. We offer a simple in-house blood test that checks your dog for 3 different tick-borne diseases:  Lyme, Anaplasma, and Ehrlicha. Test cost $48. Once your dog has been tested and found to be negative for Lyme disease, there is a 2-vaccine series of Lyme "shots" that can be administered to prevent your pet from acquiring Lyme Disease. One annual Lyme vaccine booster is recommended. Lyme vax cost $35. In addition to testing and vaccinating, we recommend monthly topical or oral tick medications that kill the insects upon biting a dog. For more information, or to schedule an appointment, please call 557-5669.
