My 10 year old Paint mare tested positive for Lyme Disease. She showed symptoms of irritability which we thought was just a heat, but it got much worse when she became so sensitive that she could not be groomed and wanted to bite when touched.
It will cost me nearly $1,000 to have her treated. The vet has my mare on a week of I.V. antibiotics followed by a month of oral antibiotics. So far my horse is very tolerant of the daily I.V. The prognosis is very good, but of course each horse's response to treatment can be different.
I am so worried about her. Has anyone been through this with their horse?
