    Default Tick Disease Test

    I used this a couple of weeks ago. I thought for 95 dollars it was a good deal. Dogs traveling a lot might pick up something not common to their home area.

    The only problem is that 95% of dogs that test positive are and will remain asymptomatic. Maybe more than 95%.

    That number might be right? Kimo did test low positive for RMSF years ago and I did nothing. He was asymptomatic, had just made antibodies at some point. I am just the type that likes to have as much information as possible.
