Day 6 – May is Lyme Disease Awareness Month
If your animal has tested positive for Lyme, the family should be tested for lyme and its co-infections. The ticks and fleas don’t care who they feed off of.
It IS possible for cats and dogs to get co-infections. We had a cat test positive for Bartonella and Erlichiosis.
Co-infections of Lyme: Colorado Tick Fever, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, QFever, Bartonella, Babesia, Erlichiosis, Mycoplasma, or Protomyxzoa Rheumatica
