May Is Lyme Disease Awareness Month
Did you know that Lyme Disease is a a bacteria called borreliosis that is spread by deer ticks in our area? The symptoms of Lyme Disease commonly start with limping, lymph node swelling, and fever. Other signs include loss of appetite, painful joints, and lethargy. Some dogs may show no clinical signs at all. Infected Dogs do not exhibit symptoms for 2 to 5 months after being infected. Antibiotic therapy will help with the symptoms but will not stop the disease. This is why prevention is so important. Keep your pet on a monthly flea/tick preventative and vaccinate them annually.
Stop by and see what the newest flea/tick prevention deals are this month! Also, any pet who recieves a Lyme Vaccine this month is automatically entered in the drawing for a Coleman BBQ & Cooler Set!
