Just wondering what everyone thinks about the lyme vaccination. Since i'm in CT, lyme is a big concern for pets. Just not sure in about in greyhounds. Thoughts...

We live in CT and William has had the vaccine. I figure he can get lyme just like any other dog,so we also give frontline for ticks and do a body check after we go for walks in wooded areas.

We use frontline as well, and do tick checks like it's our job :P

The ticks have been awful this year in CT, thankfully my two haven't had any hitch a ride. But I worry.

All of my pups have the vac. Bree goes next week for her backup vac.

I give it, never had a problem with the vaccine or lymes. But it can interfere with lymes testing (although greyhounds often get false positives anyway, or so I've heard) and isn't 100% effective.

Beth, Petey (8 September 2018- ), and Faith (22 March 2019). Godspeed Patrick (28 April 1999 - 5 August 2012), Murphy (23 June 2004 - 27 July 2013), Leo (1 May 2009 - 27 January 2020), and Henry (10 August 2010 - 7 August 2020), you were loved more than you can know.

I'm in Mass and Lyme disease is a pretty big issue in this area according to the vets. Rather than chance it, I've decided to give my dogs the vaccine this year. So far I haven't seen any adverse reactions from my boy who got his first one two weeks ago.

 

I haven't used a flea or tick preventative so far this year but, do checks for ticks on a daily basis.

 

I'm glad that you asked this because I'm curious to hear what other people say about this.
