Day 11 : Lyme Disease Awareness Photos

MYTH: Horses aren’t effected by Lyme Disease as humans and dogs are. | This statement is FALSE!


Nearly 75% of the horses, living in areas where ticks and Lyme Disease are high, have tested positive for Lyme antibodies in their blood. It’s unknown as to how many of those horses are living with debilitating signs of Lyme Disease. As more and more horses are showing the obvious symptoms of Lyme, it’s no doubt that Lyme Disease in horses is a real issue. Reports are now showing that Chronic Lyme Disease is also present in horses as well.


Some of the Symptoms to look for in your Horse:

• Fever (most likely during early infections)
• Shifting lameness not explained by injury or over work
• Poor performance
• Personality changes
• Laminitis
• Anterior uveitis (ERU/moonblindness-like eye changes).
