What is Lyme disease?

Lyme disease is a tick-borne bacterial disease that can cause arthritis, kidney damage, and death in both dogs and people. Lyme disease is currently located in every US state.

Exposure to Lyme disease may be greater in dogs than in humans because dogs spend more time outdoors. Ticks are prevalent year round, making prevention efforts even more important.

It is with great pleasure but also great sadness that we announce Dr. Kimberly Dusza’s retirement from Lancaster Small Animal Hospital on April 14, 2018.

Currently we do not have another veterinarian on staff who is trained in acupuncture, but we hope to reinstate acupuncture services in the future. Lancaster Small Animal Hospital will continue to offer therapeutic laser treatments that can be used as an alternative form of pain control for your pet. If you are interested in this service, please call our office at (716) 681-3033.

If you would like a recommendation for veterinarians trained in acupuncture, one of our staff members would be happy to assist you. We will continue to provide pets with Chinese herbs upon request until our stock is depleted. Additionally, we will continue to carry VetriScience Supplements indefinitely.

We thank you all for your support and understanding during this time of transition. Dr. Dusza will be greatly missed by the staff and clients at Lancaster Small Animal Hospital. We wish her the best of luck in this new and exciting chapter in her life!
