    We send out to MSU. It's about $90 plus whatever the vet charges for collection and shipping. From their website:

    "...This panel consists of antibody titers for the following organisms: Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme), Babesia canis and gibsoni, Ehrlichia canis, Anaplasma phagocytophilum, and Rickettsia rickettsii (Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever)...."

    That pretty much covers this area.

    If you need a good consult, give the NC State vet school a call. I don't have his name right off the top of my head, but when we got the RMSF DX I called down there as my vet was on vacation. I had a long conversation with the main TBD vet down there and it was awesome. Very informative and a little scarey when you see how much of a problem TBD are becoming.

    I find it interesting that products like Bayer Advantage Multi and Revolution no longer are marketed as being able to control ticks. My vet said the FDA has cracked down on efficacy standards for marketing and that those products fell below the efficacy percentage.

    That is interesting, I wasn't aware of it.
    Pesky little buggers are so darned hard to control.
