How long does it take for a lyme disease vaccination take to take effect on a dog?

Question by : How long does it take for a lyme disease vaccination take to take effect on a dog?
My dog got his Lyme disease vaccination a week ago, and I found a tic on him this evening, and we could not find the head after we pulled off the body. I was just wondering if the vaccination takes effect immediately or if it takes a little while. Also if they have the vaccination can the tic head still effect him in any way? He is about 95lbs and is a pit-bull if that matters.

Yea i did search and didn’t find anything, and i found the tic at 12am so I don’t think my vet is available. And the last time before this when my vet went over everything with me was over a year ago. I didn’t take him to the vet this time. Like I am going to remember everything he says… I found a tic, i wanted an answer not criticism.

Answer by Rocky
questions like this crack me up, the shame is similar ones are from mothers about their infant vaccinations too.

The vet and Dr always goes over all the information at the time of the vaccination, what kind of parent/owner doesn’t give their charge anymore thought than that. it’s not hard to find such info boom there it is (tell me you didn’t ask this Q via phone you did use in internet…do you know how to search?

    theres some vets believe that the lymes shots themselves cause symptoms as the disease. without exposure to tick bite. so, if you are in doubt a call to the vet is in order and perhaps treatment with the appropriate antibiotic just in case, without waiting for a positive test result.
