I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Neither Lyme nor amoxicillin is expected to cause such oal changes but in case your dog is experiencing an unusual drug reaction to amoxicillin or another drug being administered, it would be prudent to stop all medications and supplements and let his vet know what you're seeing. Please respond with an update and further questions or concerns if you wish.
