Main Dog has Lyme Disease. I am planning to Google and hit the library in a little while, but I wanted to ask the HiveMind if you fine-looking people know anything about it or could point me at some trusted resources.

Main Dog is 6, and this is the 2nd time she’s had a flare-up. For some reason, the Lyme Disease factor slipped my mind COMPLETELY and when the vet said “this is just a flare-up” my brain went “wait, what? Oh.”

Apparently there’s not much we can do on the day-to-day, but we can treat the flare-ups when they happen and keep her as tick-free as possible, etc. Not bloody likely with this dog, who doesn’t actually have any skin. She is ALL HAIR, THEN BONES.

So any info anyone can throw at me will be helpful! We love Main Dog, despite her many and varied flaws, and we want her to be happy and healthy for a good long while.
