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.
