I was giving my dog a allergy shot she jumped the needle pricked me. I didnt get hurt just a tiny prick and the bleeding stopped. My dog has lymes but was treated. Is there any chance I can get it?

Valid concern. I would call your doctor and see what they advise you to do.

I spoke to a vet I was told leggally cant avise me anything but it has to be done through the life cycle of a tick not from a dog. If i need advice i have to talk to a MD. But to get lymes people have to get it from a deer tick.

Yeah thanks i feel better wow i was in a panic i did google but I was not sure because it was a needle lol

I work in medical myself. unless there was fluid on the needle or it was a dirty needle i wouldn't be too worried.

You are fine. You won't get Lyme. But wash the area well to prevent other infection.
