Adopting dog with lymes disease
Friday I applied for a dog at our local shelter. Today I got a call that the pooch had been spayed but had a positive test result for lymes disease. The shelter said since the diagnosis was very early and the dog would be on antibiotics for 4 weeks it should stop the disease. They also said the dog will "always" test positive even though the dog may never have symptoms again. If symptoms reoccurr they assured me an other course of antibiotics would stop it again. I was told the dog would always "carry" the disease but may never, or seldom have outbreaks of full-blown symptoms. Does anyone have a dog with lymes disease? I have read pages and pages of info and they all say pretty much what the vet/shelter told me. I want to hear from others with pets that have this disease. Also what are the best meds for Lymes and Heartworm? Thanks for any advice.
