Rowan Sanderson sits down with Dr. Brendan Clarke, Co-Host of Raw Pet Medics and President of the Raw Feeding Veterinary Society (RFVS) to discuss Lyme disease in dogs.

Lyme disease is an infectious disease caused by a type of bacterium called spirochete, which is carried in the digestive tract of ticks. The ticks regurgitate materials, including this bacteria, into the skin of whatever they are feeding on.

Listen in as Rowan and Dr. Clarke run through tick hotspots in the U.K., signs of Lyme disease to look out for, how to address Lyme disease, how to remove ticks, and why to avoid products that assure “100%” protection against ticks.
