    Awe poor baby! I hope he gets better, soon. My partner's mother's dog just tested positive for it but they live in the woods. I also knew a nurse who got it, too! No fun at all.

    Sarge is fine with medication will help with problems down the road, I had no idea cuz he acted normal. I always take my two babies in for a check up every couple months for peace of mind.

    Tom is right, everyone in tick areas should get their dogs tested. Aside from genetic conditions, untreated Lyme disease is the #1 cause of kidney failure.

    Obtaining a dog license should require more than writing a check.
