WELL, Jack was diagnosed with Lyme Disease a few weeks after we rescued him.:( He woke up with joint pain in his rear leg, (he wouldnt walk on it) and he lost his B appitite. We got him on medication right away. and he's doing much better, although, lyme will never go away. Well poor Jack, this week, got an ear infection and his appitite isnt so good. hmmm…WELL i hope it gets alittle better, he seems to be doing better, we are cleaning out his ears everyday. but its Navy Vets. and im sure they are great, but they seemed to be rather quick about getting him in and OUT of the office quickly. I really hope his lyme isnt flarring up again... WELL i guess we will just see...anyone with lyme?? besides me?
I am so sorry to hear about Mr. Jack. He is very lucky to have an attentive mommy like you. Just hang in there, Im sure it will get better. I do not know anything about Lyme disease but I have a vet appointment tomorrow morning and I will ask for you and let you know what I find out. Good luck!!!!
I don't know who your vet is, but we really (REALLY) like the Noank Mystic Veterinary Hospital. Dr. Sminkey handles Sophie and Stick with care and seems to know about basenjis in general.
Not a big fan of the other local Vets in our area.
Sorry to hear that Jack has been getting sick.
I am sorry little Capt Jack has acquired lyme disease. BaMica's mom had it one time and she didn't feel too good about the lyme circulating in her body. Amazing what those almost tiny invisible critters can do. Hope Capt Jack feels better with treatment and antibiotics.
