3 For 3

Tessa's Lyme test got goofed up the first time around so I just got the results.  Yup, she's positive too.

100% success rate for the ticks, 0 for all my control efforts.  Oh, and there is a shortage of doxycycline.  We're really on a roll now.

Sarcasm aside, if you live in the area, you might want to get you and your critters checked.  I know of many other cases of Lyme in the area, it is epidemic.

  1. If you really can't get doxy, i've heard that teasel root tincture works well for dogs. Not sure about donkeys but it's worth some research if necessary. We haven't used allopathic antibiotics at all (a combo of too hard to find a lyme aware doc here and me being surer sensitized to drugs now) and we're still getting better.

  3. I am so happy you suggested that with Kate. She is doing great now, after her round of Doxy. Can I send you some from the vet here???

    Not sure, that last post that came in here might have looked like it came from my son, Quinn.

  7. Sorry to hear this and hope you can get the doxy soon. Maybe Sara can help.

  8. And it is horrendously expensive also....we had a dog with Lyme disease and it cost one arm and one leg to get the meds.
    The vet felt bad about it. This was over a year ago.
