Lyme vaccine and Lyme antibiotics are two different things. You can't vaccinate against something you already have. Vaccination is preventive medicine, even if it isn't foolproof. The OP is treating her dog with antibiotics, which kill the Lyme bacterium in the dog's system. Mino and doxy are potent, and if the vet caught the infection early enough, either one can cure the Lyme, so it will not be a life long problem. If not, Lyme is completely manageable.
To the original poster-good luck! Also, anything you can do to help with liver function would be very beneficial for your dog.

No, it's based on the OspA vaccines. OspA is highly inflammatory. Increased immunity often means increased inflammation....the arthritis association was done on the OspA vaccines, I have the links on the other forum, which I can't post here.
It's one thing to give the vaccine in the hopes of preventing lyme. It's entirely another thing to vaccinate a dog that has already contracted lyme, which typically is a lifelong condition, though often will go completely in remission, until it finds an opportunity to arise again.

I think your opinion is outdated based on the old Lyme vaccine.

Can you post a link to peer reviewed study about this please? I have never heard this and would like to research.

|Jbartlett||Update: Waiting 20 minutes after the meal to give he antibiotic solved the vomiting issue|
