However, the vet's office lost it before it could be examined/identified.
Received the test results back and they were positive for Rickettsia. Vet started on Doxycycline
25mg 2X per day for 30 days. Given these symptoms and inability to locate herniated/ruptured disc on the CT, is it possible the arched back and serology results, along with the vomiting bile, lethargy, depression and failure to eat were all symptoms of the Rickettsia, and not a ruptured disc?
