The yearly reports are in … and Lyme disease is on the rise in dogs. And that fact can be scary for dog owners.
But before you consider the Lyme vaccine for your dog, there are some important facts you need to know.
Why Should You Rethink The Lyme Vaccine For Your Dog?
The Lyme vaccine is one of the most dangerous vaccines you can give your dog.
Like other vaccines, the Lyme vaccine can cause allergies, cancer and organ disease. And don’t think you’re in the clear if your dog doesn’t show any of these signs the week after he’s vaccinated … vaccine damage can take months or even years to develop.
So, if your dog’s Lyme vaccine has the ability to harm him, the benefits of the vaccine should outweigh the risks. That’s good common sense. So I want you use common sense when it comes to the Lyme vaccine for dogs.
Once you vaccinate for Lyme disease, you can never reverse that decision or the damage it can cause. So before you rush to your vet for that Lyme vaccine, please read my top 3 reasons why the Lyme vaccine for dogs is risky business …
#1 – The Lyme Vaccine Can Cause Lyme Disease Symptoms
“There is no justification for taking this serious vaccination risk with our dogs. The Lyme vaccine is all risk and no benefit; there is a high chance of severe adverse events like a lifetime of non-treatable arthritis pain just for getting the jab in the first place.”
#2 – The Lyme Vaccine Contains Dangerous Ingedients
- Creating this type of chaos in the immune system can carry some serious issues. It can cause hypersensitivity disorders. Hypersensitivity is chronic inflammation, which can result in allergies, cancer and organ failure.
- Aluminum and thimerosal can travel to the brain and cause inflammation there. If you’ve ever had a reactive or fearful dog, you might not have considered his vaccines as a cause.
#3 – Most Dogs Don’t Get Lyme Disease Symptoms … Even When They Have Lyme Disease
Why Do So Many Dogs Get The Lyme Vaccine?
Should you get the Lyme vaccine for your dog?
I can’t tell you what to do … although there are a lot of folks who try to …
If you visit the Pets & Parasites website, you’ll see some pretty scary things like this …
The folks at Pets & Parasites aren’t the most creative bunch, because here was their 2017 forecast …
And their 2016 forecast …
They deliver the same message every year and just change the date. How can Lyme disease be that scary when most dogs will never get sick. Even when they test positive for Lyme.
Why all the fuss about Lyme if it doesn’t really affect dogs? The Pets & Parasites website is published by the Companion Animal Parasite Council. This organization is “sponsored” by companies who make tick products they want you to buy.

You might think I’m biased when it comes to vaccines and that would be true … but I’m nowhere near as biased as the huge corporations that make billions of dollars off dogs and cats each year! And don’t think they’ll share my little secret that 95% of dogs with Lyme disease will NEVER develop any symptoms … there’s no money in that message.
They do try to scare you and your vet every year so you’ll run out and get their spot ons and vaccines.
But now I hope you know better than to get caught up in the propaganda.
So are you going to vaccinate your dog for Lyme this year?
