Tick Test:  Disease Assessment

Did the tick that bit me, or my pet, have Lyme Disease?

Of all tested tick species, 76% test positive for at least one type of infection.

We know it can be stressful to discover a tick on yourself, a loved one, or a pet. Tick-borne pathogens, including Borrelia burgdorferi—the causative agent of Lyme disease, are carried by over 76% of ticks in the wild. Having your tick tested for tick-borne pathogens is one of the best ways to determine your risk of infection.

Our testing program can determine whether the tick that bit you carries the bacteria that cause Lyme disease or other tick-borne diseases. 

This information is critical in helping you, and your physician or veterinarian, decide if treatment is necessary.
