I just came home from the vets. I brought home with me another 184 Doxy 200mg capsules. That's correct the last two dogs are now being treated for Erlickiosis. The vet likes me so he came out and schmoozed while I was paying the next mortgage on his house. I asked if there was a possibility it could be passed from one dog to another since we never found any ticks on three of the four dogs. He was skeptical and then almost in unison we both said "what about people?" People can get other forms of tick diseases is there some reason why we would be immune? Or should we find out if there is a test? I asked if the little gizmo they use to test for heartworm and the other blood borne illnesses would test human blood. As I walked out of the door the discussion was on that the doc would donate blood to give it a whirl.
