Hello,

I am sorry to hear your dog has Lyme disease. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

I would give 50 to 60 mg of doxycycline, once to twice daily. It must be given with food (it causes vomiting if taken on an empty stomach). I usually do this for about 3 weeks but sometimes longer.

Let me know if I can help with anything else. I hope he is better soon. Kindly consider rating my answer (always appreciated!); you can still get back to me with questions and updates after rating. Let me know how he is doing. Rebecca
