Your Dog Has Lyme
We don't mean to freak out dog owners; but the truth is that we are in the heart of tick season; and dogs are prone to tick diseases this time of year.
Ticks hide in grassy areas in the warm months of the year; and when dogs are outside playing in the yard, ticks have the opportunity to bury into their fur. If dog owners do not regularly groom dogs for ticks, they may be surprised to learn that their pet has Lyme.
After being outside, how is your dog feeling? These are the symptoms of Lyme Disease in Dogs:
- Fast heart beat
- Excessive drooling
- Loss of muscle movement
- Lack of appetite
- High blood pressure
Lyme Disease can be transmitted in just 24 hours. Remove the tick as soon as possible; and take the dog to the vet for Lyme testing. #LymeDiseaseAwarenessMonth
