AVMS Editor’s Husband "Ticked Off"
G. Lovell, a fisheries biologist with ADCNR, was thankful his wife Ashley was familiar with the tell-tale signs of erythema migrans. Thanks to her 11-year membership in AVMS, she recognized this rash when it appeared in the summer of 2010 and took him to the doctor for treatment. He was likely exposed to the tick while electrofishing in the streams of Central and South Alabama. He completed a 3-week course of doxycy-cline and seems to be symptom-free.
