Canine Lyme disease & nephritis, anyone gone through this?

17 August 2015 - 12:39 PM

My 6yr dog went from hero to zero over the course of a couple days, and was taken to the ER Vet Saturday night when she could hardly stand up. Blood tested positive for Lyme antibodies and kidney insult.

Sub-q fluids, amoxicillin, protein inhibitor, and pain meds. Been a bit more than 24hrs. Mobility is back some, but not sure where to go from here. All my research shows it's pretty grim. I don't want to go through extensive treatment for something that can't be fixed.

Reasonable hope? Let it run it's course? Euthanize sooner than later?

Crappy weekend.
