Lyme disease is not spread from dog to dog or from dog to any other animal.  The disease is only transmitted directly to dogs and other animals through infected tick bites.  To prevent Lyme disease use a topical tick repellent faithfully every month and brush your dog very frequently to mechanically remove ticks.
