  • TICKS!!!! They’re Back!!!

    Time to think about getting your dog tested and vaccinated against lyme disease. It’s important to test for Lyme disease now, to make sure we catch lyme postive dogs before they are clinically ill!

    April is Lyme awareness month here at the Carleton Vet Services and Lanark Vet Clinic. Last year there were 100’s of positive cases of Lyme disease in the area. A statistic released by IDEXX for this area shows that every 3 in 10 dogs will test positive for LYME disease. LYME disease can be prevented by vaccinating, using monthly topical preventatives, diligently checking your pets after they come in from the outdoors.

    A small blood sample in spring & fall will ensure your pet has not come in contact with a positive tick and preventatives can begin. If your pet does test positive, meaning they have come in contact with a positive tick we would begin a course of antibiotics that would be given for approx one month further bloodwork may be required. Lyme disease can cause stiff, swollen joints, Flu like symptoms and worst case scenario Kidney disease.

    Lyme disease can be prevented with due diligence.
