Symptoms of Lyme disease include fever, lameness, swollen joints, enlarged lymph nodes, lethargy, depression and anorexia. While Lyme disease
cannot be transmitted from dogs to humans, a high prevalence
of Lyme disease
in dogs often may mean a higher incidence of Lyme disease in humans.
In addition to the Lyme disease forecast, CAPC has issued forecasts and prevalence maps for three other parasites this year: heartworm disease, ehrlichiosis and anaplasmosis.
