Majors Symptoms. Anaplasmosis from Deer Tick infects ShihTzu.

Major was not eating quite right, picky even in the late afternoon. He is 4 1/2 yrs old now. It was also almost time for his wellness check and shot update. So I took him in to my Vet now anyhow.

When the Vet looked and checked him over there wasn’t anything wrong until the blood test came in, it showed  Anaplasmosis was in his blood test, the blood was sent to a larger lab.

I’d never heard of this type of infection from a deer tick before. I was quite amazed! Knowledge Is Power!

The lab report showed it was not active.  This was Wednesday.… On Saturday Major had diarrhea , Sunday & Monday and vomiting 2 times.

We started him on medication right away. He has responded to it right away. This is Friday and Major shows no sign of anything now.The meds for Anaplasmosis are, cerenia 16 mg_____endosorb tab,_____metronidazole 250 mg_____proviable cap._____and bland can food.

One thing odd is I have not seen a tick this year, none on him.  Major’s lime vaccine was right and his FrontLine Plus was up to date, so the tick must have bit and dropped off.

Right now he is a happy little love;  in need of three more med times and a bath from chasing chippes.
