flea and tick preventionWhat 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.
