[h] .. and or swollen glands

[j] .. abortions in mares
[k] .. chronic weight loss.

A common blood test is used diagnosis and to detect antibodies of the bacterium (Borrelia burgdorferi).

Lyme disease is typically treated with antibiotics, anti-inflammatory drugs such as 'bute' and possibly medicines to help replace the normal intestinal bacteria that is killed by the antibiotics.
