Our 3 1/2 month old puppy was bitten by a tick about 3 to 4 weeks ago. (We have since changed her flea medicine to nex guard and it is great.) We noticed Wednesday night the Jasmine was acting really weak and not eating so she was taken to the vet on Thursday. He said it was a tick illnesses and gave her antibiotics and something to help with her fever which was 104.8. My question is ddoes any one know how long it may take for her to get back to feeling like herself? She is still weak and tired all the time.
She is on oestrogen. My father-in-law took her and he could not remember what kind of tick illnesses. I plan on calling the vet Monday to make sure I am just starting to worry about her being so weak and tired all the time. We have to water her food down also so she will eat it now
I would not be giving minocycline to a puppy that young either. Ruins the enamel on the adult teeth. I would ask to switch to Amoxi. Not as great on some tick born diseases, but better for the pup. Sort of, oh I actually don't know. This is a tough one. It's a toss up. Your pup is actually symptomatic, so that may change things. But talk to the Vet about side effects in a young puppy.
I check the labels before I give it each time one of them is twice a day and the other is 1/2 a pill a day. I will call our vet tomorrow to check on side effects. Thank everyone so much you have all been a great help
