    Default Lyme disease

    This got me to register, i have been a long time lurker.....
    anywho there was a horse i was to sell on sat. I noticed on fri. that he was off. Vet came and now horse is on Ceftiofur. He has 3 more treatments (intramuscular shot of 18cc split into 2 spots).

    So i was wondering, how many of you have horses who've had a relapse? That's is my main fear at this point.
    I'll update this in 3 weeks.

    Current treatment is 28 days IV Oxytet. Sorry...nasty disease. Google Cornell equine Lyme treatment.

    I'm assuming he did a snap test?

    What's the history? Do you have a quantitative titer?
