Vega-gurl 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.

It appears to be highly dependent on the genetics of the individual. Roughly 1/3 of the human population appears to be susceptible to the OspA lyme vaccine, I do not know the percentage of dogs with this particular susceptibility.

LisaT 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.

Per the vet that I use for the Lyme vaccine, the latest studies out of Cornell are showing the opposite using the Nobivac vaccine. It is showing to increase immunity in dogs without active Lyme. So a dog would need to be tested to see if it's active and then administer the vaccine.

I think your opinion is outdated based on the old Lyme vaccine.

LisaT You probably want to give some liver support while treating with minocycline. It can sometimes have harsher effects than doxycycline, though may be better for neuro lyme.

I will ask about antacids Monday. Thanks
Vet has no clue.

Jax08 You might try giving slippery elm 30 minutes before his meals to help coat his stomach for the meds. They meds are just harsh on the system.

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