Okay so we have never done this before, but I thought in view of so much information, that says different things, I would tell a first hand account of what we are experiencing.

Penny is 6 months old and 41 lb.
On Saturday she was very quiet, on Sunday morning she was lame. She could not walk her back legs hardly moved and she cried a lot when trying to stand. A trip at 4am to the emergency vet and a blood test said she has Lyme disease, and a low grade fever 103.
We were given some Doxycycline and she came home painfully.
On Sunday she was in such bad pain that my husband gave her a baby Asprin. We did check with the vet first, of course this action meant that she could not have other pain killers for 48 hours. She was so bad he decided to risk it and hope that day 2 of the Doxy would see enough improvement.
It certainly helped she was able to walk (a little bit like an elderly lady on high stilettos) and her back had the arch but she was able to walk up to me by the time I got home from work at 9:30pm.
