Is my tick infected? 


Ticks can carry a wide variety of pathogens, viruses, etc. that can have long-lasting effects on the body if not treated immediately.  In order to find out if the tick is carrying any infections, it’s a smart idea to send the tick in for testing.  Finding out this information early will quickly give you an idea of what you may or may not have contracted from the tick.  (Having your tick tested is not a diagnosis.  Please refer to our disclaimer page of the website).
