I’ve never dealt with lyme disease but poor little fur baby! It’s so sad to see pets sick, my cats have been sick I’m so upset, wanting them to feel better πŸ™

Awwww…….is that a doodle? I have a doodle! I cannot imagine what I’d do if something happened to him.

Good luck!

I fortunately have never had to deal it but we did have a scare last summer. He is so cute, just love him and hug and kiss him. I really hope the tests turn out negative.

Aw! He’s adorable. I hope he’s okay. I’ve never dealt with it, but I just had to comment on how much I love the doodles. lol. I dog sat for a friend who has one last year, and he is easily the best, most easy-going dog I’ve ever met. We even got a porkie (poodle/yorkie mix) for my mom last year. πŸ™‚

My poor puppy has lyme!  He was given anti-biotics and pain killers (for the joint pain) and is just peachy now!  You wouldn’t even know!  He can incur flare ups if he’s stressed so I’m always watching out for it, but as soon as you get them on the anti-biotics they’re fine.

My mom’s dog also has lyme so she’s helping me understand and recognize the signs for flare ups.  It’s no fun for the dogs, but as soon as they get treatment, and it hasn’t reached the liver, they’re fine!

Our pup had it and didn’t get diagnosed for awhile.  I think he had it from the time we took him in because he’d get these random lame paws.  We’d take him to the vet and the vet would say oh he’s an active puppy, probably just a sprain or infection, he’d give him a round of antibiotics and the symptoms would go away for a few months.  When we moved our dog came down with it really bad, had two paws go lame, fever, and couldn’t walk, so we went to a new vet and they knew it was lymes right away.  I think ours was a bit of a different case since he’d had it for so long but the antibiotics would only temporarily clear it up.  He never came down with a fever after that but would still get lame paws every few months.  Our new vet would not change the type of antibiotics (said there was no way that there was any resistant bacteria too it) and just kept prescribing him the same thing so we finally found another vet who switched the antibiotics and he hasn’t had another reoccurance since.  Most cases aren’t like this, both vets said the majority of time one round of antibiotics clears it up and once in awhile it takes two rounds.   Hope your pup feels better.

@Hillzie:  This is off topic- but is this the same doggy who didn’t get his picture taken with santa?

@Hillzie:  I’m not sure why- but whenever I think of that picture it makes me smile!  (Granted it also makes me a little sad- but I just loved that post!)

Poor buddy! But you caught it when it’s treatable so I’m sure he will be tip top soon. What a handsome Doodle.

@Hillzie: Glad you’re able to get it treated early πŸ™‚ I hope he’s feeling better soon.

And now I’m wondering about this santa picture?
