Lyme disease

Does anyone know the symptoms of this disease on dogs?
I looked on the internet but it was not so helpful.

I don't think they show up right away anyway think it takes a few months for any if some to appear. I think the key one is lameness which would show up but the others are internal problems which can only be diagnosed by a vet so if your worried i'd get it checked out at your vets!

It came out very easy.
They always do on him but none of the other times has him or the cats had swelling.
Does it normally swell?

Yes, sometimes it can swell depends on where it has been on the animal and how sensitive the skin is in that area. If you at all worried get it checked out by a vet as sometimes these things can become infected. I'd also discuss Lyme disease with your vet and seek their advice on the matter as they might be able to offer you the vaccine against it for your pets or have some advice on the symptoms and signs to look out for

We called the vet and she said the lump is just swelling and lyme disease is quite rare in Sweden in dogs but if we are worried to call again or take him in.
He seems fine and I will see if the lump goes down in a few days if not I will take him.
Thanx for those sites

That is good.
That is why I did not know what they were coz my pets had never had them before.
