A high monocyte count usually means a chronic infection. Give that your dog has a fever, it obviously has an infection. NO idea what would cause the low platelet count.

Listen to your vet, and please don't try to diagnose your dog over the internet. We really can't be much help.

The vet can do an x-ray to see if there is anything wrong with the joint. If the dog isn't limping, it's likely okay. Most tick-borne diseases can be detected with blood tests. Can he do those tests?
.

There are many more tick related diseases in your country than in North America. That's one reason why we really can't be of much help. However, some tick related diseases do cause joint pain and swelling.
