  9. Dog Testing Positive for Lyme Disease

    Dog Health
    Yesterday, during a routine vet visit, I was told my beagle, Brody, tested positive for Lymes. I'm not really surprised even though we use flea & tick meds since we live in a very bad tick area and we are always hiking through the woods. My concern is, the vet prescribed antibiotics even...
