This is our third blog post on Dr. Bob Rider’s Sporting Dog First Aid session that was presented at the Lion Country Supply Bird Dog Days Customer Appreciation Event. The topic of this blog post is the treatment and prevention of Lyme disease and heart-worms, two very common threats to our canines. Lyme disease is one of the most common tick-transmitted diseases throughout the United States and Europe.

Our first blog post was about treatment of dog wounds, cuts, motion sickness and digestion issues. In this blog post the topic is the treatment of bee stings and venomous snake bites.
