So you removed your tick, now what?
GET IT TESTED!
Find out what diseases you may have been exposed to.
Consider having it tested for major disease-causing pathogens. In addition to Lyme disease, there are many microbes in ticks that can cause disease in you, your children or your pet. But not all ticks are infected and not all tick bites are risky. Our partners at UMASS’ Laboratory of Medical Zoology can test the tick and give you highly accurate information to assess the risk to you or your family member bitten by a tick.
