Special precautions for use in animals. Animals with antibodies against Lyme disease may be vaccinated and thereby protected against possible infection and clinical manifestation of Lyme disease.
The risk groups for vaccination include animals with demonstrated clinical manifestation of Lyme disease verified e.g. by cultivation of borrelias in the infected individual, in which case vaccination doesn't improve the condition of the vaccinated animal (the germs of B. burgdorferi persist in well-protected sites for the whole life of the dog regardless of therapy and/or vaccination - e.g. in joint synovia) and therefore such vaccination is useless because despite the performed vaccination, the disease caused by borrelias may develop (stress, other infectious diseases, etc.).Special precautions to be taken by the person administering the veterinary medicinal product to animals.
