Presentation Abstract

Lyme disease is a poorly understood condition in dogs. The range of Borrelia-infected ticks, responsible for transmitting Lyme disease, continues to expand in the US and Canada resulting in many infected dogs. Infected dogs rarely show signs of illness, however, Lyme disease can be severe (e.g., kidney disease). This talk will review our current knowledge of canine Lyme disease risk and forecasted emergence and recommendations for prevention and control. Preliminary results from a large on-going US and Canada study will be presented.
