    I am currently waiting for the vet to call with their finding regarding my dog’s ailment. she has a bite that red around it the size of a nickel. she does not seem lethargic and she eats as normal, but she is having trouble walking and is in pain in certain positions. a few weeks ago i was diagnosed with lyme disease and, oddly enough, these were my exact sypmtoms. i barely had a fever, i had no rash, no nausea, but i could hardly walk and i was lethargic. (apparently most people with lyme have a high fever and many much exaggerated flu symptoms) is it possible for a dog to have lyme disease and only present two symptoms: joint pain and rash? Has anyone ever experienced this?yes, i told the nurse this morning about my condition. i have been ready a lot of blogs and such from owners who had trouble getting a diagnosis for lyme on their dogs, when in fact the dog did have it. this is understandable considering that i was sick for two weeks before my doc figured out what was wrong.thanks for the help!

    Yes. One of my dogs tested positive for lyme disease when I was having her heart-worm tested and she showed no symptoms of it. Many dogs don’t show symptoms or take a while to show them.

    Yes, it’s perfectly possible – and the fact that the ticks in your area have the disease to pass on makes it quite likely. Does your vet know that you have been ill with Lyme’s recently?

    My dog had lymes disease and no lie. I know how people lie on this thing. Joint pain is a symptom. My dog was limping the first day, second day she couldn’t walk at all she couldn’t eat go to the bathroom all by herself. Your dog has Lymes disease.

    Yes. It’s entirely possible. Tell your vet that you had lyme diesease too, it may have assed from you to your dog.

    what are the symptoms of lyme disease in dogs? is lyme disease contagious? can it be passed from dog to human?

    Lyme Disease is caused by a spirochete called Borrelia. A spirochete is a type of bacterium. It is transmitted to dogs through the bite of a tick. The feeding tick is basically a blood sucker. It must keep its host’s blood from clotting in order to continue sucking so it is able to regurgitate assorted enzymes to keep the blood flow liquid and smooth. It is during this regurgitation process that the Lyme spirochete is brought up from the tick’s midgut to its mouthparts. This process requires a minimum of 48 hours which means that if the tick is removed within 48 hours of attachment, the spirochete cannot be transmitted and the host will not get the disease. Once in the blood stream, it is carried to many parts of the dog’s body. It is especially likely to localize in joints. Lyme Disease Symptoms: In dogs, Lyme disease produces symptoms characterized by arthritis, though it can sometimes involve heart, nervous system and the kidneys. The arthritic joints may become swollen and hot, and there may be a fever (102 to 105 degrees) and poor appetite. Dogs may also become lame because of the disease. This painful lameness often appears suddenly and may shift from one leg to another. If untreated, it may eventually disappear, only to recur weeks or months later. The glands (lymph nodes) of the dog may also be swollen. Many dogs suffering from Lyme Disease are taken to a veterinarian because they seem to be experiencing generalized pain and have stopped eating. Often these dogs have high fevers. Some dogs are affected with the Lyme Disease organism for over a year before they finally show symptoms. By this time, the disease may be quite widespread in the dog’s body. It can’t be passed from dog to human, however, if you were to be bitten by a deer tick, you can get lyme disease also.

    My dog Cruiser recently tested positive for Lyme. Though disappointing, this news did not altogether surprise me. He is a 3-year-old Chesapeake Bay retriever with a penchant for outdoor adventure. The very suggestion that I am preparing to go for a walk sets him dancing around me like a half-drunk and joyful, if oversized, pup. He lives for our walks in the woods, trips to the elds and river and    .. more …

    I just found out my 3.5 year old collie mix is positive for Lyme Disease. The vet put him on meds for the next three weeks and said he would be fine. i couldn’t really find much info on the disease. Any info would be great. Will he be cured?Will he be more prone to it in the future?I know I should have asked the vet this but it was a Sat. and had my other 2 animals in there too. It was a mad house there, sort of got puched out the door.

    Lyme Disease is not fun. Though I’ve only seen one case working at the vet for 5 years. I’m surprised they didn’t give you the info about Lyme disease. Well, here is a link to Veterinary Partner. com – I send all of my clients to this website to get true information from real vets about all kinds of pet stuff. http://www.veterinarypartner.com/Content.plx?P=A&S=0&C=0&A=1588This will hopefully help you understand about Lyme without me filling too much space here!Good Luck and keep your other pets on Frontline to prevent them from getting lyme and vaccinate for it too!

    Have a look here.
