Darn ticks

Posted by laurie on September 13, 2011

I took Sherman to the vet yesterday for his annual checkup. They have some fancy shmancy blood test that checks for Lyme and a bunch of other tick borne illnesses and gives the results in 10 minutes. Sherm has Lyme Disease! He’s asymptomatic so it came as a complete surprise. Treatment is thirty days of Amoxicillin. Because Lyme can impair kidney function, we have to collect some urine to bring in. Any hints on how to do that are welcome. I made an appointment for Stanley to get tested next Monday. Thirteen years here and no Lyme up until now. I guess that makes us lucky?
