Heads up ...

To dog owners in the NY Metro Area:

There has been an increase in Lyme disease among dogs in our area. And now, there is growing concern that means we'll see the same in humans.

Veterinarians in New Jersey say they're seeing an increase in cases.

The New Jersey Department of Health is urging residents to be aware of the signs and symptoms of Lyme disease, as well as the importance of seeking medical treatment.


You should check your mutt every time they come into the house. The distinctive Lyme telltales in humans are hard to see on dogs. If you're in doubt, make an appointment with the vet.
