Common Questions and Answers about Doxycycline use in dogs

) Also, Walmart carries frozen buffalo patties, (6 per box) in the people section - dogs love that raw, or warmed 30 sec in microwave, (anti-biotic and hormone free). Doxycycline can cause really painful GI problems is used more than a week. Speaking from experience!!! Your dogs gastrointestinal trac might need some attention to feel better. You could start giving some plain yogurt on the side, (don't use anything flavored with artificial sweetners as can be poisonous to dogs)...
Most LLMD believe that the majority of Lyme patients have a co-infection or 2. LLMD use igeneX labs because they give the most accurate results. Since you are in the medical field you could go on the igeneX website and read up and while you are on the ILADS site, read Burascano's treatment guidelines. Lyme requires months or years of IV or oral abx along with many supplements, probiotics and magnesium to name a few.
The main thing about supplements-----it's not that I think they're useless, but to use INSTEAD of science-based medicine is fruitless in my opinion------ and in many others. As we've said here many times---- Get thee to a Lyme specialist. But make sure they're a GOOD Lyme specialist. I just posted a new thread you might want to read. http://www.medhelp.org/posts/Lyme-Disease/Referrals-for-a-doctor-from-ILADS-and-LDA/show/2017609 I'll answer your other questions tomorrow.
It’s scary as hell. I was chicken sh* t to use the at-home box after it states in the directions NOT to use it on the face. HOWEVER, this is the same thing your derm would do for upwards of $2000. I don’t have TIME right now to wait a month to see my judgmental derm who would first and foremost push antibiotics and topical on me before he’d agree to freeze it. Not to mention they will chastise you for picking at it.
reaction because I started long term antibiotics treatment(Doxycycline) late summer in attempt to control skin infections. I live in Suffolk County, NY, Hamptons to be specific. Too bad Dr. Joseph Burrascano doesn't practice here anymore. From what I read in other posts, in other forums---I may need "lyme literate" MD with open mind, willing to doing more testing, not just borrelia but others".
I'MNOT SURE HOW LONG HE HAS HAD IT. IN APRIL HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH HIP DYSPLACIA AND THE VET THINKS HE COULD HAVE HAD IT THEN. HE IS ON HIS 9TH DAY OF DOXYCYLINE. AT FIRST HE COULD WALK A LITTLE, BUT NOW HE CANNOT OR MAYBE DOESNT USE HIS RARE LEGS AT ALL. HE CANNOT WALK AT ALL. I SPOKE TO HIS VET YESTERDAY WHO SAID TO DOUBLE HIS RIMADYL FROM 50 TO 100MG TWICE A DAY. IS THIS NORMAL. WILL HE RECOVER THE STRENGTH TO WALK AGAIN? ANY INFO YOU COULD GIVE ME ON LYME DISEASE WOULD HELP.
Doxycycline nearly always causes nausea in dogs, and often vomiting. However, it is a very effective antibiotic. Has he finished the antibiotic course already? If so, then it would be a good idea if you can feed him some natural "Live" yogurt (unflavoured) daily for a few days until you see any improvement, as this will act as a pro-biotic, replacing natural gut bacteria which will have been wiped out by the long antibiotic course. This will help his digestive balance.
Recently, I was put on Allegra D and I just finished my antibiotic (doxycycline) prescription. I have dogs, but my allergies seem to worsen at work or when I do heavy cleaning and dusting. (I have had dogs for the past 11 years with no problems) I use a vaporizor/humidifier. I keep a clean house. I use a HEPA fan at work and home. I guess I'm just frustrated. I can't make plans in any season without worrying about getting sick. Is there something else I should be doing?

It is primarily in one eye although the other eye does have it slightly. It is slightly red in the corner of my eye. If I pull down my lid, it is red and it has follicles. My eyesight is fine and it doesn't hurt, although sometimes it feels like its dry. I have been to the best Drs and still the redness is there. I have been on torbadex, erythromycin, doxycycline, and patanol.
I also had some doxycycline left over in my house from when my dogs got sick a few months ago. I read that doxycycline can be used to treat the treatable STDs. I began taking 100 mg, twice a day, 2 days ago (got that from online as well). Could the discomfort in my genitalia be a side effect from the doxycycline? Should I continue to take the doxycycline? How long should I take it?
just FYI we did use Advantix on him but we are thinking that it was in the time frame of when the old application started to get weak and the new application was given. He is in the woods twice a day and is one of those dogs that wants to be in the thickest brush he can find. Like I said, he has had no other symptoms of Lyme or either of the other 2 problems other than seizure activity. He is completely normal acting the rest of the time.
1. Vicodan is dangerous in dogs. 2. Water is important and cranberry juice won't hurt. 3. You should only use IV fluid therapy under the supervision of a vet. 4. No. 5. Lasix will make things worse, it is a diuretic. 6. doxycycline has been shown to halter angiogenesis in cancer cells. Your dog may benefit from a holistic vet who can use holistic medications since you are not interested in chemotherapy. If your hesitancy is due to cost ask your veterinarian if he has Care Credit.
I started a new antibiotic doxycycline and shortly afterward started with a light rash mainly raised bumps on my wrist, I have also noticed a small place on the upper left thigh as well. I contacted my pharmacist but like me, he felt if it was related to the medicine I would have a rash in more places etc. So I am assuming contact dermatitis, possibly poison ivy from the dogs BUT IT GETS WORSE EACH DAY WHEN I TAKE THE ANTIBIOTICS.
You should know, however, that all vaccines, including rabies, are medically approved for use in HEALTHY animals ONLY. This is explicitly stated in the package insert for every vaccine. So if your dog or cat is showing any signs of acute or chronic disease, the manufacturers DO NOT recommend administration of the vaccine. This leads me to believe that your Vet is only in the money making business and not the well-being of your pets!!! Did Buddy get Parvo from the vaccine? I do not know...
From the statistics I was able to find, there have been over 6,000 adverse reactions that were serious enough to be reported from Rimadyl use in dogs. Pfizer is offering to pay medical expenses for some individuals who have been harmed by Rimadyl use, compensating them for diagnostics and treatment from the damage.
Panacur/famotidine is a much better deworming option because it is a liquid that you inject via syringe in the dogs mouth. This worked great for us and stopped the diarrhea for awhile even though she doesn't have any worms or parasites. For some reason, it just seems to help every now and again. 3. Also, adding pumpkin can SOMETIMES work to firm up the stool and certain canned foods can work too. We stick to more exotic proteins like salmon, duck, lamb, etc. 4.
Most antibiotics are mild, really, compared to some of the NSAIDS and steroids, but some dogs do have sensitive tummy's. Maybe giving it to her in a shot form, bypassing the stomach? I have a basset who has slow digestion and has episodes of vomiting after eating or drinking too fast and my vet gives me Reglan (metoclopramide) 10mg tablets...which funny enough I have for myself as I also have slow digestion and acid reflux.
Our dog had thrombocytopenia. We put her on doxycycline, in case it was a tick-borne disease. The tick profile came up negative. However, sometimes the tick parasite "hides" in the bone marrow, so we went the full course of the antibiotic. We had her on 80 mg. / day of prednisone; we are now down to 10 mg. every other day. Her platelets were as low as 13,000 - so low that she was in danger of bleeding out from the slightest cut.
So the recommendation is to use amoxicillin, augmentin, cefuroxime (or in the case of allery Biaxin, Zithromax or erythromycin which are all slightly less effective) If your friend's child was given one of these (short course=3days or more?) then he was likely given sufficient prophylaxis as far as the information I found available (given that adults were treated with ONE dose only of a med that is normally given twice a day) There are many websites that discuss prevention of tick bites.

Although the majority of experts favor the ingredient for its numerous health benefits, garlic (in rare cases) has been linked to Heinz body anemia in dogs.4 However, the limited professional literature we surveyed provided no definitive warnings regarding the use of garlic… especially in small amounts (as it is here). Next, we find no mention of probiotics… friendly bacteria applied to the surface of the kibble after processing.
He is also missing a small circular patch of hair above his left thigh. He's a 4 year old yellow lab and use to be extremely active. We take him to the dog park often and he usually loves it. In the past week, he just stays by my side and seems annoyed by the other dogs. Please help!
To my knowledge---There is NO Vet School in the US that recommends the use of this vaccine because of it's danger and very little studies on the vaccine. (Something like a whopping 2 days!) So, I'm curious---Why did your Vet want to do this? Do you live in an area with serious load of cases of Lymes? It sounds like (From your description) that your dog has contacted Lymes FROM the vaccine...The symptoms you describe are the same with the disease.....

i think he caught a chill so i took him to the vet and they gave him ornicure which i beleive is doxycycline the antibiotic. He has it in his water but has not improved much after 5 days. I have moved him near a heater where it is very warm.If i take him to the avian vet is there anything different they can do? i do think it is a respiritatoy infection. He is eating, drinking and playing fine but he does sleep more and his breathing is very heavy.
Thankfully she was heartworm NEGATIVE in May of 2013. So in reading about lyme vaccine it should be used in healthy dogs...Because of Chloe's hx of hearworm and that treatment ...I'm not sure if she qualifies as 100% healthy...and I remeber having Chloe home the nite of her first of three shots for heartworm...she became so lethargic I could barely wake her....her heart rate was very, very fast, and she felt cold to me...I thought she was surely going into shock..
I always start with less to be sure its well tolerated by kitty before giving the full 500mg. you could also spread it out and use 1/2 cap in a.m. the other half in the eve....to save up to $10 on your first order from iherb quote this SED957(I am in NO way associated with iherb, I'm just a good customer) http://www.iherb.
If you are able to contact your dog's breeder please do so and ask about history of Atopy in his siblings and parents. If you live in a city there may not be much exposure to Lyme and other tick borne diseases, but, tick borne infections are ubiquitous in the environment and your dog should be tested regardless since anything that could further decrease his immune system must be addressed.
We would all want them to die peacefully in their sleep, but this is not always the case. I have read many peoples posts on kidney failure in their dogs. Most people say that when their dog stops eating, The time is near. Watch for increasing signs and symptoms. I pray that she will go peacefully in her sleep, but if this is not the case, I am sure you will know when it is time to let her go. My heart goes out to you.... ( My lovely little yorkie..TwoBits had kidney failure.
