it never really goes away or is cured..My dogs are chronic for anaplasmosis.
You'll never find the tick that transmitts tick disease they are so minute.
Mine at this point are not symptomatic..it's just 'there'. I have treated with doxy at varying times, with Masi this year I decided not to treat because she is not symptomatic.
The dosage I used is 5mg per body weight twice a day, I usually do a 2 month dose.
Once it's in the bloodstream, it's usually always going to just 'be there'. Because he's positive doesn't necessarily mean he will ever be clincal, it's the level of the infection that matters.
LisaT is my tick guru , she knows far more about tick diseases than I do..
