One Health isn’t just talk any longer. Veterinarians and human physicians are teaming up to create awareness regarding tick disease in pets and in people. There is so much talk about humans contracting Lyme. Many may not realize this, but Lyme and other tick-borne diseases are a big issue for our dogs as well. And when your dog goes out, you and other family members are often on the other end of that leash in the same environment as your dog. It makes sense that if your dog has been exposed to ticks, you might have been as well. The StopLyme campaign is our effort to increase education so we can protect ourselves, our kids, and our dogs from diseases spread by ticks by preventing tick bites in the first place.
