Lymes disease vaccine
Lucy went for her next DHPP vaccine today and my vet offered me the lepto and lymes vaccinations in addition. I declined the lepto because I read that it can have really bad side effects and long term issues. I hadn't heard really anything about the lymes disease vaccination, and since grass is typically taller than my Lucy and she has black hair (making it hArder to see ticks) I thought it would be beneficial to have it. Now that I'm home and reading up on it, I am seeing how it can cause Lymes disease and other problems like kidney failure. I'm kind of upset that I didn't do my research beforehand. Have any of you had the vaccination? What is the likelihood of this vaccination causing Lymes disease or other reactions? Am I freaking out for nothing?
