    of interest....most of the diplomates of the ACVIM do not vaccinate for Lyme.
    There is evidence that Lyme positive dogs should not be vaccinated.
    There is concern that the Lyme vaccination itself may cause Lyme Nephropathy
    Good article when it was published (2006) but it is outdated

    I received the following privately, and am passing it along with permission because I was wrong and I want to correct it:

    Your information is disputable. Antibodies are not generic, they are specific. The newer lymes vaccines are to the outer surface proteins and not to the organism itself, making them safer. http://www.duramunelyme.com/
    These vaccines were not around until the last 2 years. It is LymeVax by Fort Dodge that is harmful because of what the antibodies are produced against.


    also here's some other information that was shared with me:

    good of you to post this Barb. I still don't think Lyme vaccines are for everyone- Although my active trial dogs certainly get the Lyme vaccine- Since they are always in a high incidence area. Anyone who lives in an area with a high incidence of Lyme disease should speak to their veterinarian on an individual basis to make this decision. Course, I think this is true of all vaccines. Except rabies, which is required by law.
