Lymes...does it ever end?
Got bad new today, my horses results came back positive for lymes again. This time he's showing the numbers for acute, so he was reinfected, and his chronic numbers are higher then they were when he was tested in November :(
After testing him in November and finding out he had chronic lymes, the vet had me do the doxy for 30 days, and he was like a new horse after that. Then in April he started feeling stiff, and acting out again when you'd be trying to get on...like he did last time when I decided to get him tested :(
Vet told me to try ledum for 30 days, its an all natural remedy, but I wasn't able to get it in fast enough so I wasn't able to start it before his results came in today. Sooo now they want to try treating him with the IV tetracycline (i think that's what it is?) for a week, then 2 weeks of doxy...SOOO he gets to stay at the vet for a week, poor guy :(
Hopefully this works well, has anyone had good experiences with it or have any suggestions? I started using equispot on him a few weeks ago too and haven't been finding any ticks on him since. I'm lucky in live in Northern VA where ticks are just terrible!
My poor Dexter :( I really hope this treatment works!
