An engorged tick not something you want to find when you have spent years suffering with Lyme Disease and years regaining your health.
I suspect it has dropped off our dog Beth a Springer spaniel and not my husband or myself.
Beth has been struggling with arthritis although she is an elderly lady. As she has often had ticks attached and engorged I suspected her arthritis like mine could be as a result of Lyme Disease although the blood tests were negative but I guess as they do an ELISA only then no surprises there to get a negative result.
I couldn't face another battle with vets for antibiotic treatment
so just in case a few months ago I tried her on Samento. What a difference she bounces around now as she did a few years ago with not much sign of arthritis and no need for anti inflammatories.
So here's hoping that if this tick was attached to her and infected her Samento will take care of any infections.
I will be keeping an eye on myself and husband too.
Just shows you can never be too careful even when you are Lyme aware.
