Talk to me about Lyme!

Postby Moemer » Tue Jun 21, 2016 2:26 pm

Hi folks,
I've been on the prowl for a a dog, and I talked to a rescue today with a dog who was pulled from a KY shelter. He tested positive for Lyme and was treated, he's currently asymptomatic.

We have some pretty specific criteria for Nextdog, so if the dog is A+ in all other days - should this be a barrier? What's the likelihood that this will become symptomatic if it isn't currently? What could the long term consequences for me and dog be?

Thanks all!

Hey. Pofi was having a lameness issue many years ago and we tested for Lyme. It did show natural exposure to Lyme and also antibodies produced from Lyme vaccine ( had done vax in earlier years, but stopped). We were pretty sure it was not chronic disease yet. Did 6 weeks doxy and he has been asymptomatic ever since.
