Signs of Lyme Disease in Dogs

Lymes disease is a scary and dangerous tick-transferred disease that is best known for infecting humans. But did you know your pets who spend time outside—like dogs and cats—can get it, too? With their furry coat, it can be challenging to identify Lyme disease in dogs. Learn the signs.

Signs of Lyme Disease in Dogs

Dogs share some symptoms humans experience with Lyme disease, but they can’t express their pain the same way, so you have to pay close attention to how your dog is acting to notice something is wrong. Signs include:

  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Reduced energy
  • Stiffness, discomfort, or pain
  • Swelling of joints

If left untreated, Lyme disease could progress to kidney failure, which is sometimes fatal. Also, cardiac and neurological effects may occur.

If you notice any signs of Lyme Disease in your dog, consult your veterinarian.
