Wear Lime for Lyme day 2024 – take part with your pets

We’re on the countdown to Lyme Disease Awareness Month this May. A key date in the diary is Wear Lime For Lyme Day on Friday 3rd May! We would be delighted if you and your pets would take part by donning some lime green attire! Why not get your office or hobby group involved too?

Get Your Green On!

There’s a range of lime green clothing options available to purchase online for Wear Lime For Lyme Day. We’ve listed some ideas below for humans, dogs and other pets!

Download our guide to posting about Wear Lime for Lyme Day including downloadable images, hashtags and suggested wording for posts.

Dogs

We know that many of you are dog lovers, so we thought what better way to raise awareness than with the help of our beloved canine friends. We’re selling these Wake Up To Lyme bandanas for dogs!

It’s a fact that dogs can easily pick up ticks, and this places dog owners at greater risk of tick exposure. In a study conducted by the University of Bristol in 2015, the Big Tick Project found that a third of dogs checked at random during a visit to a vet were found to be carrying a tick. Our doggy bandanas are the perfect way to raise awareness amongst fellow dog owners!

Spot the bargain; our bandanas are only £6.99 each (plus £1.95 post for up to 3 bandanas) and can be purchased here.  Due to limited stock, we currently one have the Regular size available. It fits most dogs, as you simply fold over for the best fit and then tie around the dog’s neck.

       

Other Pets

Dogs aren’t every man’s best friend, so if you’re the owner of a cat, horse, or even a tortoise, there are still many ways they can take part in Wear Lime For Lyme Day on Friday 3rd May! There’s a range of lime green items available for purchase online, including collars, bow ties, and jumpers.
