I'll tell you what really sucks... when your dog dies. But what makes it even worst is when your dog dies at a young age and you could have possibly prevented it...
It happened to me. A couple years ago my dog, magic, died from lymes disease. Like most dogs, magic loved food and she wouldn't ever turn some down. But as she became more ill I couldn't even get her to eat steak fresh off the grill. Her organs were failing and I could tell. I already had her on medicine and the vet told me she would be getting better. I spent magics last night petting her because If I stopped petting she would whine. I guess my attention eased her pain a little and I think she slept a bit on her last night.
The next morning I brought her in and magic was put down three days past her 7th birthday.. She was an amazing dog and I'll never forget her.
I had her on bio-spot and a tick collar... still wasn't enough.
If you have a dog I strongly recommend you take all the precautions that you can. Even if it costs you a little more. It's going to be a bad year for ticks and they now carry three different life threatening diseases. I already know a person whose brother needs blood transfusions and another person who is going through liver failure because of advanced limes disease...
You don't want lyme disease and your dog doesn't want it either.. Skip the cheap treatments and take care of the dog.. Sometimes it can't be treated as well as people think. And it can be very deadly, especially if it goes undiagnosed for a while.
Sorry about your dog. My niece had Lymes when she was a toddler. Her parents used to feed deer in their backyard every winter and I've wondered if that had something to do her getting it. She recovered fine, though.
I think we're using advantix or something like that. We can't use frontline because we have a cat and its harmful to them apparently.
My pup is on day 5 of the runs so I'm guessing its something else going on. He seems to get better and then has a set back. He's eating and drinking fine and his energy level is normal so I'm not too worried about it but will get him checked again on Wednesday regardless.
