Optimal treatment for your pet requires a combination of home and professional veterinary care. Follow-up can be critical and may include the following:

  • Administer any veterinarian prescribed medications. Observe your dog's general activity level, appetite and interest.

  • Schedule regular veterinary visits to monitor your pet's condition.

  • Blood samples should be checked to monitor the Lyme disease titer.

  • Of course, the precise follow-up depends on the severity of your dog's disease, response to therapy and your veterinarian's recommendations.

  • Be certain to contact your veterinarian if you are experiencing any problems treating your pet.

    If you live in an area at high risk for Lyme disease, discuss vaccination for Lyme disease with your veterinarian.
