In brief: Months, but rx early

Dogs can get lyme disease, as mild or severe as humans.
As with people, it can affect the skin (usually earliest sign), but then in second stage, it can affect joints, and it late stage cause heart and brain disease. The organism is the most common spirochete-causing disease in the world. Needs high index of suspicion by physician, diagnosis, and proper treatment.
