Does your dog have symptoms? Mine has had it twice now. The first time he had Frontline on, and the second time he didn't because it didn't work for him the first time so I figured why bother with it. But the vet said not to give up on it, so it is back on him again, and it was freshly put on at the time that I was bit this last time in June so we think it may have actually repelled it from him onto me this time.
On Father's Day, probably one of the worst possible days to go to Cabella's, we went and got spray and something to treat clothing with and also a spray for the dog. Both contain permethrin. For some reason it's okay to put it on dog's skin, but not human skin. You can also get stuff to treat the yard with it (permethrin) in. We haven't gotten that yet. We were also thinking about getting guinea chickens, but the more we learn about them we might not bother. We should at least treat the yard somehow.
Hope Rocco is feeling better, whether it was Lyme or not!
