LYME DISEASE IN HORSES
Horse & Hound Veterinary Services has an in-house blood test to screen horses and ponies for Lyme disease, a tick-transferred disease. This test is very simple and only requires a tiny sample of blood and 10 minutes of your time for the results! You will know if your equine pal has been exposed to the Lyme-causing Borrelia burgdorferi organisms before leaving our clinic. If your horse is lethargic, stiff, lame, feverish or has shown behavioral changes - let's test for Lyme disease which is SO prevalent here in Knox County, Maine. Medications are available to treat tick-borne diseases. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 557-5669.
