kiya Since he was on heavy round of amoxicillin for a uti I am just going to be glad that he has recovered from the paralysis. He is on milkthistle for liver support, turmeric paste and spirilina. Liver values to be tested in a few weeks and I may do tick borne.
No matter what he's doing really well wanting to play alert, that's good enough for me.

Can you provide a peer reviewed article in support of this? I have not heard if new " strains" of Lyme and am curious. We see a lot in my area.

kiya He had been negative for Lyme which I was suprised about. Going for bloodwork in the beginning of August. I'm just really glad he's better. He was just on a heavy course of antibiotics for a uti not doxy, also his liver isn't functioning as good as it should now.

carmspack was talking with Journey's owner this morning , Laurel, who is a bright nurse practitioner and Lyme's disease came up in the discussion. She mentioned a well known specialist in Lyme's that is in her department .
might be worth a PM

kiya Amazingly enough Apache's paralysis has gone away! I had noticed he wasn't drooling but he still had some droopiness. I had been putting eye drops in his one eye that couldn't blink as much as I could then Friday morning I saw him blink as I went to put the drops in. Poor dog I kept testing his blinking I was so happy I wanted to be sure. It was nice to call my vet with good news for a change!

Stosh My friend had it- the drs said it was either a viral infection or stress related. I imagine it's the same for dogs

kiya Thanks. I don't think it's tick related he had been coming up negative the last few tests. Unfortunately ticks are bad here, I have Lyme's. Glad to hear no pain associated because the poor boy has really bad arthritis. He gets Adaquin injections. I think about his symptoms and I was thinking his ear was bothering him. Then last week he started drooling and his eye was tearing. I was hoping it was only an infection or some thing.

LisaT Rules out include lyme disease or other tick infections. Some viral infections that live in the nerves can also cause this.

Curtis My wife has it. She got it 15 years ago when she was pregnant with our third child. Most people fully recover, so hopefully Apache will. She still has some remnants in the form of a crooked smile and an eye that tears when she eats.

Like Ranger's Mom said, it is painless.
