Spring Brings Added Lyme Disease Risk

 It’s spring and the ticks are back. Lyme Disease comes from a tick bite but that doesn’t mean that a single tick bite is always going to cause your pet to get Lyme Disease. That is because only a small fraction of ticks actually carry the borrelia bacteria that causes Lyme disease.

If your dog does get Lyme disease, symptoms may include joint pain, inflammation, fever and lethargy. Canine Lyme disease treatment will include antibiotics from your veterinarian. Using natural supplements along with conventional veterinary treatments can help to manage the uncomfortable symptoms of Lyme disease.

Researchers from the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health tested the effectiveness of plant-based extracts in the treatment of Lyme Disease. Japanese knotweed was one of the top two most effective supplements in killing off Lyme bacteria. Ask Ariel's Resveratrol For Dogs is made with Trans-Resveratrol from Japanese Knotweed, an antioxidant with anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and cardioprotective properties. Resveratrol for Dogs can increase circulation, especially to the heart and joints, making Lyme Disease treatment more effective as blood flows into areas where the bacteria can hide.

If your dog has been diagnosed with Lyme Disease, consider adding Resveratrol for Dogs to help your pup get well
