Can dogs pass on lyme disease if they bite you, breaking the skin?

This won't answer your question...But some say yes and some say no.

I feel it is possible, beings their saliva is going into your body.

Cats can transmitt disease by a bite, so don't see how a dog would be much different.

Lyme disease from a dog bite would be the least of my worries.

Dog saliva is a toxic brew of pathogens.
