    What is a tick panel? What disease are they looking for? What disease would cause limping?


    Good point.. I was petting Max this evening and I noticed he had 3 deer ticks latched on him around his face. Those suckers are hard to find! Brown on brown sucks!

    How old is your dog and what are you feeding him?

    My golden was 2 years old with a limp......Later determined Lymes disease. He is now 11 years old, fortunately with some doxy treatments years ago and a yearly check for lymes he is still here with me.

    Any type of Limp I am checking for lymes...

    A tick panel wil determine if any tick borne disease is present. Very important. I recall to the day my dog limping one minute and then looking like nothing had ever happened. Then looking like he had been hit by a truck limping both sides.
