Lyme Disease Strikes

It's official -- the blood test results came back and Libby has been diagnosed with Lyme disease.

The good news is that we seem to have caught it fairly early and that she started feeling better within about 48 hours of starting the antibiotic treatment.

She was vaccinated against the disease, but I've been reading on the internet that the vaccine is kind of iffy because a single tick bite will spray multiple mutations of the bacteria into the dog's blood stream.

She was also on Frontline, which apparently worked because the tick hopped off before we could find it. But now we're questioning whether there's any point to keeping her on this stuff.
