What a wonderful breakthrough if something comes of this. In the woods that I enjoy hiking with my dog in, there are deer ticks everywhere.

This is good news. We see a lot of this in the northern parts of the midwest and it's a real problem for animals and people alike.

We don't have a problem with ticks where Mochi is concerned, but I do hope this can help a lot of dogs when it finally comes out.

Huh? Okay...my dogs are all vaccinated for Lyme already, been something for that for a few years, now is this one new to what we are getting already? For dogs that already suffer with having it, to avoid getting it....did I not read the article well enough or is there really not a whole lot of information in it.

Ok - I'm thinking they are talking about treating dogs who are infected, I thought dogs were already put on a series of medications for that and...still confused, wish there was more information on the vaccine in this article. (having a conversation with self here.)

what kind of news is it? Nothing about the vaccine itself ... And there are already vaccines against Lyme disease...

I was confused about this at first as well. But after reading it over a couple of times I think this vaccination may be aimed not so much at preventing it, but curing (at least the symptoms) of dogs that have already contracted it.

This is quite a find. We live in a heavily-wooded environment so would be really interested in finding out more about this vaccine when it's available.

I live in an area that we have to always think about ticks. It is very bothersome. My grandfather actually contracted this lyme disease. He is okay from that though. I hope that this is all good with the vaccine for the dogs.

We do too around our house, and also do a lot of camping and hiking, we get the Lyme preventative shots already, so hopefully we won't need something to cure Lyme. We also get testing each year for the diseases that ticks (more than Lyme) can transmit to our hounds.

This would be great for dogs with Lyme disease (which is common in our area) and may even lead to a breakthrough in treatment for humans. (Unfortuantely Lyme is also common in people in this area and can be very difficult to treat.)

Yuck! I hate ticks. I'm sure most of us do. They freak me out. I just my dogs everynight for these little blood suckers. My husband heats the tweezers and then removes the ticks. We heard that that makes them remove their bite. I hope this is the right thing to do.

I knew Lyme's disease came from deer ticks but I didn't realize how tiny they were. I hope the vaccine is developed without side effects. That is great news.

My dog had several ticks on him one time after walking through the woods. It was quite horrifying, but no harm done once they were all removed.
