Lyme Disease and arthritis
« on: August 10, 2014, 02:13:40 pm »
Haven't been here for a very long time. Lollie is now 8 and half years old. At the end of June she was diagnosed with lyme disease. She has finished her month long antibiotics. But she does not seem to be better. I have had her back to vet last week. He said, it is arthritis made worse by the LD. At the moment she is getting a dose of metacam every night, but even that does not seem to give her a lot relieve.

I just can't get my head around the fact that in a weeks time she went from doing zoomies in house to not going faster than a walk, very careful getting in the car, and can just barely get on the bed.

Anyone have any experience to share, or suggestions of other things. The vet wants her on a mobility diet and some supplements.

Does she need another round of antibiotics? or is it really all from lyme disease?

All thoughts and shares will be greatly appreciated.
