Okay, It has been a while since I have updated. Heliosīs platelets went down again -127 ATM- Yesterday I did a Bloodtest and today I got the results. I am planning on reading every page of this thread to compare notes/dosages and results. I am starting him on Doxy (200mg every 12 hours). Iīll post in a while the results...

Sandra, I hate tick diseases:( they are so hard if not impossible to really get rid of, and honestly I don't think they ever really go away:(

My doxy dosage is 5mgs per body weight every 12 hours, (twice a day) Make sure you give with food it can sometimes upset their stomaches..

Thanks frown At the moment I am giving him 200 mg every 12 hours (31 KG) and Yes, I will give it with food.

Another thing I just noticed: He weighed 29KGS(64LB) when he was 6MO, Heīs now 22 MO and he weighed 31 KG.... thinking he stopped gaining weight since the Erchliquia, or thatīs what I have noticed.

Sandra, I'm so sorry that you are still dealing with this beast - I had hoped that Helios wouldn't continue to have problems, though I was afraid that he would. GSDs are so very susceptible to the chronic form of this disease.

There is an "ehrlichia" look to a dog - the head loses muscle mass, it gets a bit sunken, they do not gain weight. However, sometimes you will also see this with EPI, pancreatic insufficiency, so, in a young dog, you might have both, or one of the other. Then, there are always those secondary infections, like SIBO, that might be affecting the weight.

The aggressive dose is 10mg/kg twice a day. So, 300 mg twice a day, for 6-8 weeks. In the chronic form, I don't know what the answers are.

I don't know if you noticed, but I just lost my boy, so I'm not thinking real well - the most frustrating thing is that the blood counts show that there is not a response mounting, as the platelets continue to fall.

Were there any comments on the lab report about the low platelets at all, or the shape or size of the red blood cells? Since you didn't type any, I'm thinking not.

Sandra, good to hear from you, and so relieved to hear that Helios is currently doing well, you've done a good job with him!

Thank you for asking, I am adjusting. I have a new pup now, small breed. Loss is hard.

HOw long has Helios been off the doxy? How much does he weigh now.
