|Over the summer Obi was tested at the vets for heartworm on the SNAP test and we found out he had Lyme. He was asymptomatic but we treated anyway with a month of doxy. Then all through that month he had no appetite, completely lethargic, lost a good 2 lbs. After he got the doxy out of his system he was much better but I worry if he had some sort of reaction to it?
Fast forward.. he gets a tick with a red angry looking bullseye around it. He seems fine but I am going to take him to the vet asap anyway.
My question is, do you think he had a reaction to the Doxy and that I should ask for a different antibiotic? Can anyone think of one that worked well that might suit him better? He is about 17lbs. Should I even treat him? If treated will he still have problems later in life? Any holistic options?
One really worried stressed mommy
