Client handout: Licking Lyme disease
Explain to clients that Lyme disease can be prevented with tick parasiticides and treated if caught early. This handout with information from the AVMA covers the basics.
It seems like parasites are really getting around these days. And when it comes to zoonotic diseases like Lyme, news that it's popping up in greater numbers in previously low-risk areas is concerning. If you spend any time educating clients on Lyme disease, ticks and the need for tick preventive and Lyme disease treatment, this veterinary client handout, drawn directly from the AVMA (click here for all of the organization's great pet-owner-facing materials), can help.
