Lloyd Lab: Mount Allison Lyme Disease Research A research laboratory, directed by Dr. Vett Lloyd, focussed on ticks and Lyme disease in respects to companion animals and humans alike. The lab is dedicated to community engagement, citizen science, outreach, and prioritizing the research which matters most to fellow Atlantic Canadians. Ticks may be submitted for testing (for Borrelia burgdorferi) through this lab. Directions may be found in the website below.. Please note that, as of 2020, all testing requires payment ($25/ tick), in order to help cover operating costs. Testing takes up to four weeks, making it ideally suited for less urgent cases, such as ticks removed from companion animals or livestock (not humans). Tick identification, in person or via photograph, is free. www.lloydticklab.ca
