Veterinary Medicine Case Study

A new client, Mrs. Edelstein brings in “Mr. Bojangles”, an energetic 5 year-old male Golden Retriever with whom she has just moved from North Dakota. They walk outdoors in wooded areas daily and she reports frequently finding ticks on him after walks. She is diligent about preventative medications for fleas and ticks, but has heard reports of dogs contracting Lyme disease.

Mrs. Edelstein is curious about vaccinating him against Lyme disease and asks you for your recommendation. Your clinic does not yet have a protocol for the Lyme vaccine and you would like to do more research.
