More than I'd like ... only not my dog ... ME!!

Sorry about your pup. Fortunately the vets know more about Lyme than the MD's. She'll be fine.

I agree with Carla...from what I've been reading, most veterinarians are WAY more knowledgeable about treating lyme than are most doctors!

Hmmm, maybe I'll go to a vet next time I need to be tested for Lyme!

my nutritionist's dog was treated for lyme... I got the impression the treatment for her dog was standard and worked fine though she only mentioned it in passing after I told her about my diagnosis with lyme...

Jess-

I just was thinking about you and your doggie today. My coworkers doggie just got lyme too, 2 weeks ago. They were going for a F/U appointment today. They were also given antibotics.

thanks for thinking of us. within two days of starting the antibiotic she started walking again and now seems normal. shes just going nuts cause the vet says she cant go runnign and playign with dogs for 2 weeks while her leg heals. she said we didnt need a follow up appt which i thought was weird.
