Not only has this bugger of a disease affected a close family member this summer, but now it has also infected our pooch. Josh and I woke to a limping pup this morning, he would not walk on his hind right leg at all and would wimper if you touched it. At first I thought he was limping because his leg had fallen asleep, or maybe that he had strained it. Josh brought Boscoe to the vet over his lunch hour, where they did bloodwork and found that it is indeed Lymes. He is now on antibiotics (the same given to humans actually) and an anti-inflammatory for his swollen joints. He was happy to see me when I went home for my lunch, tail wagging and all but still hobbling over on only 3 paws. Made me feel good to know he is ok. Now to get him to take the pills... This should be fun!
