BATH – The Bath Public Library is pleased to present David Hyde, DVM, “Lyme Disease and Your Pet” on Saturday, April 27th at 2:00 pm.
Lyme disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis, is a bacterial illness that can be transmitted to humans, dogs, and other animals by certain species of ticks. It is caused by the spiral-shaped bacterium Borrelia burgdorferi that is carried inside the tick and then gets into the dog’s or person’s bloodstream through a tick bite. Once in the bloodstream, the bacteria can travel to different parts of the body and cause problems in specific organs or locations, such as joints, as well as overall illness. Included in his presentation, new information on the Asian longhorned tick, coming soon to a pet near you! The program will conclude with a Q & A session.
Dr. Hyde graduated from the University of Minnesota College of Veterinary Medicine in 1998. He has been working in Northern Vermont and Massachusetts for the past 13 years. Dr. Hyde started working for Ryegate Small Animal Hospital in 2001 and has recently returned to Ryegate Small Animal Hospital after a 6 year hiatus.
Dr. Hyde enjoys all aspects of veterinary general practice. His special interest, however, is in veterinary dentistry. He believes strongly in a lifetime of care and a strong personal relationship with owners and their pets.
This program is free and open to the public. There will be light refreshments served.
