Our 8 yo standard Schnauzer was diagnosed w RMSP last week. She's on Doxycycline 2x daily. Never found a tick on her. She's getting hand fed. She only gets up for bathroom purposes. Our breeder suggested IP 6 which we stared a few days ago. Condition is status quo.

My Great Dane (Zac) was diagnosed with RMSF in June 2010, we never found a tick on him. He was treated for 4 weeks. Last Sunday he vomited, we though nothing of this, he likes to eat and play with dead animals.(we live on a farm)I gave him an IM injection of LA 200 after the vomiting, because he was just acting lethargic and not his active self. He was not any better on Monday(MLKday) so I took him to the VET, they stated they felt it was a relaps, so he is know back on Doxy for 4 weeks.

All the information that I can find states that once a dog recovers that he has immunities.

My 10 yo plus Rottie was just diagnosed with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever Disease. This past week her legs swelled, appetite has decreased, the last 2 days I have been hand feeding her. She has been on doxy going on 3 days now, along with Rimadyl and tramadol. She is an indoor dog, only out with us, fenced in back yard (privacy fence) no other dog contact but with the other dogs at home. I do work at an ER clinic and my husband is a police officer, so maybe she got it from us bringing a tick home??
