    You didn’t catch lyme from your dog. You got it from a tick. There is no other transmission it’s not from touching your dog or breathing the same air. If the ticks are attached to your dog they aren’t going to jump off onto you. After 24-48 hours they fall off, completely engorged. They don’t look for another host for a couple days…however you should be cleaning your entire house in case any already have fallen off.

    Your dog should be tested for tick diseases since untreated it can kill him. Go to a vet, ask for the test and ask what prevention they recommend.

    IN THE MEANTIME….get a pair of tweezers and pull the ticks one by one off your dog. That’s going to have to be something you check for and do routinely unless you want an infestation and disease all over again.

    Also check your own body often for ticks…they have to bite *and* fill up before they can spread disease like lyme.

    You really want to educate yourself about tick disease transmission, prevention and control. Lyme can cause serious long term side effects in humans and dogs even after treatment so for your own sake and dog’s, take a deep breath and start getting the ticks out of the dog, vacuum your house, make the vet appointment, and get food grade diatomaceous earth to sprinkle under your bed, in windowsills and in your yard (it helps kill the ticks). Other tick diseases may not show symptoms but are also deadly if untreated.

    Your puppy will need to see a vet. If you can’t afford to take her to a vet, search for non-profit organizations for animals in your area or call your local humane society for info on reduced or free pet care. You should get treatment right way.
