Lyme Disease and Anaplasmosis

In Minnesota, 1 out of 11 dogs test positive for both Lyme Disease and Anaplasmosis, which are bacterial diseases spread by deer ticks.

Still squirming from the recent article posted about tick season coming to Minnesota, but would like to know more? Visit the Companion Animal Parasite Council (CAPC) for more information on tick borne diseases. The CAPC website includes a prevalence map for Lyme Disease and Anaplasmosis showing their distributions across the nation, as well as across each individual state.  To see the prevalence maps for Minnesota (county by county), visit http://www.capcvet.org/parasite-prevalence-maps. Also visit www.westgatepetclinicmn.com for detailed past articles on Lyme Disease and Anaplasmosis.
