Itâ€™s not just people who are being affected by increasing levels of Lyme diseaseâ€”pets need to be protected, too.
Jesse Shirey, DVM, of Elk County Veterinary Clinic, said cases are appearing with increasing frequency in the animal world as well. His latest statistics show that the clinic saw 240 cases of dogs testing positive for Lyme disease from October 2011 to October 2012.
â€śWe see a ton of Lyme disease,â€ť Shirey said. â€śWe see a high incidence.
