has anyone had the misfortune to experience anaplasmosis ? My BC of 10 months was bitten by a tick carrying the disease and has had a fever of between 39.4 to 41.5 for almost 3 weeks now. She was recovered in a clinic for the first six days and then sent home with the relative anti biotics. She now has polyarthritis and is very reluctant to move. Her appetite returns when her temp goes down slightly and she does drink. On the vets advice I gave her cortisone (subcutaneous) and had her on a Ringer solution drip (twice a day for 2 days) Im in daily contact with the vet who has told me that I will have to be patient and that it could take weeks before she's better. Im beginning to tear my hair out and cant bear to see her like this. Any input greatly welcomed.
