If my tick test returns positive, does that mean I have a disease?

Not necessarily. Consult your doctor or vet.

Positive results do not necessarily mean you’ve been infected. Please consult your doctor or veterinarian. Transmission of a pathogen from the tick to its host is dependent upon how long the tick had been feeding, and each pathogen has its own transmission time. It’s important to note that our tick testing service is not a substitute for medical consultation or diagnosis.
