Re: Lyme Aftemath?

Dear Beth and Cidney
The lyme involves the muscular skeletal in stage 1 characterised by
profound fatigue and lethargia also in stage 2 would have neurological
seqiuealle and stage 3 cardiac and arthritis.
note in Rx should be for at least 10 days 
and if reoccur as in beth case that occurs in 30% of cases then treatment
should be for at least 30 days either parentral or oral best is
tetracycline or doxy cycline.
note that 50% of treatment lymes individual would have symptoms of fatique
and leathargy for months.....Months after the infections.....
would be nice to treat your horse again for long time plus cardiac EKG if
