I just picked up my dog Sofi from the boarding facility after being gone for 6 days and she possibly has come down with Lyme disease. They said she was fine up until the day before and she suddenly became lethargic and lame. They took her to the vet and we are waiting for the blood work to come back and meantime she is on pain med and antibiotic. I am very concerned. Does anyone have experience with this disease? Can you give me some good news?

My wife's dog had lymes when we adopted her. She was on a month course of doxy, which rid her of any of her symptoms and years later she has been going fine without any issues. However, when she gets the annual heart worm/tick born disease test, she will sometimes show up with a very light lymes positive. It has never been an issue and we just make sure we keep her tick free and monitor her for possible lymes symptoms.

My dad got lyme disease a year or two ago, but I don't have any experience with it in animals. I hope your dog will be okay though!
