Pyramid Lyme Disease Test Kit / Testing Fee

Suitable for use on humans and animals, our Lyme Disease Test Kit is a unique kit to test ticks for the presence of the Borellia bacteria associated with Lyme Disease.  Results are provided within a maximum of four working days from receipt of the tick as an independent laboratory report, which can be shown to a medical or veterinary practitioner.

Rapid, early treatment of Lyme disease is crucial to avoid the development of chronic, long term symptoms, however current medical testing is limited in early stage infections. Our kit is an invaluable aid in successful, rapid diagnosis.

Payment for the kit is a two stage process:

  1. Purchase the kit (£10.25).  The kit contains tick removers, test tube, all return packaging and full instructions.
  2. Payment of the testing fee (£30.00).  This payment should only be made when you have found a tick and wish to send it for testing.  It is recommended that payment is made immediately prior to the dispatch of the tick.
  • To purchase the kit please select Lyme Disease Test Kit in the dropdown box on this page and add it to the basket in the normal way.
  • To purchase the testing fee, please select Testing Fee in the dropdown box on this page and enter the five digit code from your Test Kit return label into the box on this page.  It is essential that this code is entered as it will be used for validation at the laboratory and for communication of the test results.

Pyramid Lyme Disease Test Kit / Testing Fee Reviews

Product Tested By Kim Pearson

Kim Awarded The Lyme Disease Testing Kit 5/5

My Initial impression when I received the kit was that the box is compact, not bulky and won’t take too much room up. I was not aware that you could purchase such a kit. I was aware of the rash symptom for Lyme’s disease but not the other symptoms. I was not aware that you could test yourself and your dog for Lyme’s disease. The instructions are clear, to the point and only 5 steps, which makes the process a whole lot easier. I was not award of how easy you could pick up ticks until 1 year ago when I got a dog, I used to take  him out in a grassed area of a park and he started picking up ticks. This kit does give me peace of mind. I have found a few ticks on my dog, knowing that this is around is great, it will make me less worried about if the dog has picked up Lyme’s Disease. I haven’t used it as of yet, but it seems simple enough. I had no idea 2,000 – 3,000 Lyme disease cases are reported each year in 80 countries throughout the world. Now I have this kit and am very much aware of Lyme Disease and how it can effect your pets and you.   This has given me an insight into the symptoms, and made me more conscious of the situation. The quality is good, nothing is heavy or sharp or out of place. I would pay the RRP for the kit and the £30 for testing, but I  do think it is on the pricey side, but if it detects Lyme’s disease, it’s cheaper than a vet visit. I would recommend for family or friends that own a dog or walk in wooded area, I would recommend as it can be very helpful in the detection of Lyme’s disease. The product gets a 5/5, I did not realise such a thing existed, now I do, I feel more at ease knowing I have it to hand rather than having to go to the vets. I have not  had to use this yet, but from reading the instructions, I am very pleased to have it. Kim Pearson

Arrived safely, well packaged and informative information on the box.  I was not aware you could even purchase one of these testing kits. I am very aware of the symptoms as one of my dear friends was infected years ago and due to not i=finding out the cause of why she was feeling so ill it took a long time for the doctor to diagnose the problem and she has been left with long term issues.  I was not aware I could test my dog or even myself for early detection of Lyme disease. The instructions are very informative and I was pleased to see the kit I received is valid through to December 2021. Means I will have this ready if I need to use in the Spring, summer or Autumn next year. I am aware how easy it is to pick up a tick even if you are not a dog walker, if you like the outside and enjoy country walks you can sometimes be bitten by one and not know what it is. To have this kit available when required really does give me confidence that if any of my family or any of my dogs are bitten by a tick I can send off for testing and get medical treatment quickly from vet or our doctor.  This to me is vital as can be such a debilitating disease. I have not had to use this kit yet as although my dogs picked up a few ticks we had no symptoms that they were unwell,  but will be handy during the Spring and Summer and ready to use. To be able to send off and get antibiotics to treat infection quickly is so reassuring. I know Lyme disease is not talked about much, but I do know many people catch this each and every year and an early diagnosis is imperative.  This kit is a must have if you love the outside and walking in the country. I now ensure I wear long trousers, boots, socks and protective coat when out walking the dogs now.  Was not aware you needed to spray yourself with insect repellent but have now incorporated that in our routine.  Just gives you extra protection. I must admit would never have thought I would need a shower after a long walk and I know I should do this but sometimes I am exhausted after a long walk and just want to relax.  But must bear this in mind for the future. This is a good quality item and one that helps protect your pets health and wellbeing and yours too. After seeing how Lyme disease has affected my friend long term it is worth every penny.  You can get a cure quickly and not suffer long term side effects and you cannot put a price on that. I would buy this again once I use this next year and will ensure I always have one at home ready to use if required. Already recommended to all my dog walking friends. To get a quick diagnosis for you and your pet a small price to pay and this kit will always be in our house and used when required.  Juliet Taylor

Arrived in very neat box, well presented and looked good quality. I had no idea you could purchase a Lyme disease test kit for you or your pet. I was not aware of the symptoms of this disease and since receiving the kit I have looked online to find out more about the disease.  Would never have thought to look this up prior to receiving this kit. The instructions are informative and very easy to follow. When walking my dogs I always wear boots, long trousers and a protective coat due to always being bitten by insects, but was not aware covering up could help prevent getting a tick bite. I was impressed that is you found a tick and you thought your dog was off colour you could send for a test and forward the results onto the vet.  This means they can get actually find out if your dog is infected and treat early which is a massive saving on long term vet bills. Also good to know if I was bitten by a tick I could send results directly to my doctor.  A win, win for me and my dogs.  One of my dogs picked up a tick and only removed one during the testing period.  But now I am more aware and in the warmer months they can pick up more and I will use this kit to ensure they are not infected in any way.  I had no idea just how many people catch Lyme disease each year, was an eyeopener for me. Absolutely more aware and knowledgeable about the disease. Yes good value when protects your dogs health and your health.  I will have to buy more as have more than one dog. I would definitely recommend this kit. I did think the testing process was a bit expensive, but when you take into account this can stop bad long term effects then it really is worth investing in this.  Had never heard of this kit before, really pleased I had the opportunity to test and find out more about this disease.
