Question:

About a week ago I found a tick on my JRT. I burnt it off him with a hot set of tweezers. Just today, I found my JRT limping pretty badly. His right paw was very sensitive and he was whining badly about it. Someone told me that it is a symptom of lyme disease. Is that true? How soon do I need to get him to a vet? Thanks.
