What is Lyme disease and what do I do about it?

Lyme disease is transmitted by ticks and causes inflamed joints, fever and systemic illness. It can be costly and difficult to treat. There is a vaccination for dogs that will help prevent Lyme disease. Seek advice from your veterinarian to get your dog vaccinated. Using flea powders/sprays or the spot-on Frontline will help kill the ticks. Please call 765-423-9388 for more information.
