Following the recent discussion around getting ticks tested for co-infections as well as lyme got me wondering if there are labs in Canada that will test ticks for more than just lyme. It looks like the National Microbiology Lab in Canada is only checking black-legged ticks for lyme.

Just wondering what our options might be as it seems to make so much sense to check for all co-infections in the tick if you can.

Thanks!

We can send them to Igenex, can’t we?

They will test for several co’s

Of course! I hadn't thought of that, must be lyme brain ;-)

Seems expensive but much cheaper than having to do all the tests later.

Thanks Girlie.
