  Poor Fumble. I hope he feels better soon. I didn't realize there was a shot to prevent Lyme. Is it a once a year thing? We've had a terrible year for deer ticks here and I really worry about Lyme.

Poor Fumble.

Isn't that a steroid?  When ever my neighbor's son is put on steroids for his asthma he is bouncing off the walls.  It makes him very hyper.  Maybe this is also what it's doing to Fumble.

Feel better soon handsome.

Prednisone actually suppresses your immune system.  It is used for a lot of things but primarily to suppress immunity in people who have had organ transplants, to reduce allergic reactions in severe allergy situations and as an anti-inflamatory.  It does wind you up pretty good on the higher doses but then you feel really tired as you drop down.  The bathroom issue is just one of many lovely side effects.  It can also increase aggression and make you feel really hot.

i am on pred when my asthma acts up and i am hungry as a bull elephant,! LOL
but, i dont eat out of ordinary either.
i would assume it was to clear it up, the question i had was that i didnt see antibiotics listed.
i have to say this,
so far, i have not had to deal with staph or hotspots, any skin conditions with my guys, i credit the food they are fed, and, the monthly grooming schedule they are on.
they do not have excessive undercoat that is dead just laying on their skin, i blast all that out with the high velocity dryer.
good luck to fumble, hopefully this does become a regular thang!
i had no idea calif had ticks that badly!

Living 30 miles from Lyme, CT(name sake for Lyme disease) I can say I will never have a dog that is not immunized for lyme. If it is only 70% effective as Sarnewf says, it is still a whole lot better than nothing when you have the high exposure we have here in New England.


Hey we just finished treating our warmblood for lyme. It took 5 bottles of antibiotics that list @ $105 a piece, thankfully we get it at cost.
