Day 6 : Lyme Disease Awareness Photos

MYTH : Cats are not effected by Lyme Disease.  |  This statement is FALSE!


You hear about humans and dogs getting Lyme disease, but so can your feline friends. Cats, horses, cattle and dogs can all be infected with Lyme Disease.  They most common signs is one or more of their joints suddenly become swollen, with arthritis, lameness and pain. There are other lesser sign too like lack of appetite, dehydration, fever and inactivity.

Other animals that are known to be a carrier of Lyme Disease are rabbits, birds and rodents (mice, hamsters, etc) and sheep, which no solid proof has been documented but potential these animals can be effected by Lyme Disease.
