Has anyone had experience with anaplasmosis-tick borne from the wood tick? I have an eight year old diagnosed with this last week. She is on treatment (doxycycline) but showing little to no improvement so far. Just wondering if anyone else has experience with this diagnosis.

Eek, never heard of that though I know there are a variety of problems that can be caused by ticks. Any improvement yet?

Dear sweet Savannah went over the bridge this morning. I took her back in to the vet to see if there was any hope of anything else we could do. As she lost weight this past week I noticed a lump on her leg and chest and questioned these as well as a firmness in her abdomen. The vet suspected cancer with the leg and chest mass being metasis into the lymph node system. This complicated by her anaplasmosis with significant anemia r/t to the anaplasmosis made it evident it was time to let Savannah go free. She was my eight year old basset-sister to my five cavaliers...they are lost without her. Hug your babies tight tonight. There time with us is always not long enough.
