Lyme disease is caused by the bacteria Borelia and is transmitted to humans and animals through the bite of infected ticks. Lyme disease should be taken very seriously and should be treated as soon as possible. Signs and symptoms of Lyme disease vary and usually affect more than one system, so it is very hard for doctors to diagnose. The Beaphar Test the Tick is exclusively developed for the examination of ticks. A positive test result indicates the presence of Borelia in the tick.
Sizes available: 1 test/3 tests
Upon finding a tick on your pet or yourself, using this test can give an indication whether or not the tick is infected with the Borrelia bacteria. Use the "Tick Pen" or tweezers to remove the tick from your (pet's) body. Afterwards, put the tick into the test tube with the fluid and crush with the stick provided in the packaging. Leave to set for a few minutes. After a couple of minutes have passed, take a few drops and put these into the display. The results will show after a couple of minutes.
