My Puppy Got Lyme Disease | To Treat or Not To Treat | Wednesday Checkup

  • I can't believe the little Bear pup contracted Lyme Disease. These things do happen especially in an area where Lyme is so prevalent like the Northeast. This video tells the story of Bear's Lyme diagnosis as well as how I went about gathering information and treating him. Please know that I am NOT a vet and I am NOT giving you advice on how to treat your pet. I also know that many of you will ask: Bear is a Newfoundland pupper also known as a Newfie or Newf!

    STAY TUNED for Mail-Time @ the end (and my injury).

    One time i had ticks on me from caming and i tested negative at the time for lyme disease but rhey put me on antibiotics anyway just to be safe. In retrospect maybe that wasn't a good thing but it turned pit ok.

     6 days ago mom got lime disease when i was in middle school, it was a pretty rough time and stated with her getting pneumonia and mono at the same time, she went to a ton of doctors and one said “we don’t have lyme disease in texas” when she brought her own research in (she spent some time studying medicine stuff in college and knows what she’s talking about) but she finally found a doctor who would test her and guess what, it was positive. she stayed in bed for almost a year and was super sick, it was terrifying for me and my siblings but that was over 5 years ago and she is completely recovered

    Aproximately at1:47 VIRAL LOAD? I thought Lyme disease was caused by bacteria. If not, why was I reading about treating it with antibiotics?

    I've been treated for Lyme Disease that presented as Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. I now have Chronic Lyme Disease. Most people think that Chronic Lyme Disease is nonsense. Do you Doctor Mike?

    My grandmothers little dog got Lyme disease as a puppy and it hit her really hard and we were told she would most likely only live another year maybe two if she was lucky. She is now 15 and has a hard time walking but still gets around and has not shown any signs of pain in all these years.
