|lrandf||Thanks for the information. Nova still acts like a normal puppy, loves to run around the wood and chase the squirrels. I'll limit his swimming time to 15 minutes so it doesn't tire him out.|

There is nothing about the drug Minocycline that would require excersise restriction. Some of the diseases it treats, yes. But not the drug.

|lrandf||I actually did ask my vet about it. She said no excerise just to be on the safe side but I really wanted to find out more about it as to how much exercise or really absolutely no excerise at all.|

|Baillif||Its just a run of the mill antibiotic. Regular activity should be just fine. This is a question better asked to your vet via phone though to verify for sure|

My dog is currently on minocycline for his Lyme Disease, Ehrlichia, and Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. Should I restrict his exercise while he is on the medication? Is swimming too much for him at this time?
I think monocycline is also used to treat heartworm and exercise restriction is required while on treatment for heartworm but I cannot find much information online about minocycline and tick-born diseases. Please help.
