Abstract

Of 2,409 canine serum samples submitted to the Texas Veterinary Medical Diagnostic Laboratory between Jan 1, 1988 and Dec 31, 1988 and tested by immunofluorescent antibody technique for antibody to Borrelia borgdorferi, 132 (5.5%) had positive results. Clinical and epizootiologic characteristics of seropositive dogs from Texas (n = 110) were examined. Male dogs were more likely than female dogs to be seropositive for B burgdorferi. The most frequent clinical sign of disease described in seropositive dogs was lameness; neurologic, ophthalmologic, dermatologic, renal, and hepatic signs also were reported by referring veterinarians.
