We seem to have a heavy infestation of ticks this year. Can't walk out in the yard without 5 or 6 clinging to me and my Shar-Pei dog. We've picked countless ticks off her during the past six weeks and lately she seems lethargic, has loose stools, and no energy. She is only 1 1/2 years old. Could she have lyme disease from the ticks, and what are the symptoms in a dog?
It is possible. Lyme disease has a vast amount of symptoms including the ones you mentioned. Limping from joint pain is the most common clinical sign. Talk to your vet about a lymes vaccine. vetcare
