Don’t really know... treated...

Don’t really know... treated for Lyme sort of cleared up, then it seemed like it reacured..problems with the legs stiffness limping can’t walk , then she is just abou ok.. then no limping then it’s starts all over again.. lymp nodes are swollen in rear legs, had a temp tonight of 102. 4 gave her some doxycycline 300mg her weight is 67 LB and hour and a half later her temp went down to 101. 5 but seemed to have difficulty walking.. it’s the kind of thing when you give them the meds to get better, they get worst.. I’ve been through this with myself a thousand times..I know with me the code clears I recover, but with Mona I can’t be sure the same thing will take place she is 7 1/2 years old a blue nose really up against a stone and a hard place about this don’t know really which way to turn and really what to give her,,,

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?
