I have a 15 year old Irish Sport horse who is being treated (for the second time) for Lyme. The first time he was treated we used the oral doxycycline, a 45 day treatment. We pulled a titer, the levels were down and he was vaccinated. We pulled another titer a few weeks ago (about a year after being vaccinated) because he was off and we knew it could be Lyme, his antibodies were off the chart. This time we are treating him with IV oxytetracycline. He has a catheter in his neck and I am treating him twice a day. I have done catheter care before, my vet felt confident in me taking care of this one.
So, has anyone else treated with oxytet? Was it a better option than the doxy? Thanks, Jess
