Public Service Announcement from Kody
I am an 8 year old Shetland Sheepdog. I love to play and perform tricks for food. Throw a frisbee (which I'll catch) or give me a treat, and I'll be your best friend. Talk to me and I'll listen. I'm very perceptive and feel everything.

Recently, I was diagnosed with Lyme Disease. Even with all my flea and tick medicine, a few ticks bit me while hiking in Lake Geneva. It took several months for symptoms (kidney problems, joint pain) to appear. Once my vet discovered what was wrong (Lyme disease can be elusive), I was treated with antibiotics. Though my kidneys will never fully function again and I will always have a special diet and meds, I am feeling and acting much better. Due to my good attitude and abundant energy, people are surprised when they learn my age, and even more surprised when they learn my recent health history.

If you get a tick, be safe, and get tested. If Lyme disease can attack a healthy dog like me, it can infect you too.
