Ticks with one white spot on the back are Lone Star Ticks and may carry Lyme. Deer ticks are quite small and if you search the web, you will find some very good pictures. I have to disagree with your vet -- Elmer and Jason were both tested and had Lyme!! Several others respondede to the Lyme treatment - antibiotic for 3 days, if there was a definate improvement, continued for about 3 weeks. At that time the Lyme test was about $40 and even from the vet, antibiotics were $16. It was far cheaper to treat than test for Lyme.
