Has anyone had any experience with permenant after effects from Lymes and how long the disease was present before you treated for it? She may have had this a while since she has been lame for a while.
With Lyme disease, if you don't kill it all in the initial treatment, it can re-occur from time to time in the future. My horse had it in April. We did the full 30 days of Doxy and so far he's shown no signs of relapse. It's tricky illness. Hopefully you found it early and there won't be any long term problems.
