Lecture Notes

Lyme disease is a bacterial infection that can lead to joint problems and other severe complications if left untreated. It is caused by bacteria transmitted by ticks, an external parasite. Veterinarians are more likely to recommend this vaccine for dogs who live in areas with high incidences of the disease, especially those with frequent outdoor access.
