Local Medical Issues

There are many diseases that can affect our pets, especially here in the Northeast. Two of these conditions include Lyme disease and leptospirosis. Lyme disease is transmitted to dogs through the bite of a tick. Once in the blood stream, the organism that causes Lyme disease is carried to many parts of the body, and is likely to localize in joints. Symptoms can include lameness, swollen joints, sudden fever and loss of appetite. Veterinarians use blood tests for confirmation of Lyme disease, and treatment usually consists of antibiotic therapy.
