Just got off the phone with the vet and he is thinking my GSP might have it. It started about 3 weeks ago she was favoring her back leg. I brushed it off as nothing and let her rest for a couple days and she was better. Now tonight same thing but with her front leg. Have a appointment first thing in the morning. Anyone have any experience with this. My kids are scared she is not going to be ok. Both of them fell asleep using the dog as a pillow tonight.

My lab got it on three different occasions even though we gave him all the treatments. 1st time just a limp for a couple days. Second time very high fever for two days and a little limping. Third time very high fever for about a week and a couple weeks of being extremely stiff. Did not seem to have any long lasting effects.

That sucks. I had a scare that my daughter got it. Had the classic bullseye bug bite. Luckily it was not.
