Ticks and your Horse

Ticks and bad for horses, ticks are bad for people, and Ticks can travel from horses to YOU!

Lyme disease & Horses

Clinical signs of Lyme disease typically develop several months after infection during the chronic phase of the disease. One frequent sign of Lyme disease in horses is a vague lameness that shifts from limb to limb. An affected horse may also have general stiffness, fever, lethargy or weight loss

Lyme disease & People

Lyme disease is caused by the bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi and is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected blacklegged ticks. Typical symptoms include fever, headache, fatigue, and a characteristic skin rash called erythema migrans.
