As a follow up to my last entry...Buddy was diagnosed with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. This is easily treatable with LOTS of antibiotics and some good old fashioned down time, as long as the fevers stay at bay. I could handle this. I mean, yeah, its disappointing when his 2nd level work was turning out to be really good but what can you do at this point? Well, on Monday I got a call from the vet. I had forgotten that we had done a tick tighter on Jo as a precautionary since DJ had already gotten one earlier this year and we were waiting for Buddy's to come back from Texas. Anyways, the results were in. Jono has Lymes! Can you believe it? I was shocked! I mean this is also a very treatable diagnosis but still! So, now I have 1 with Cushings, 1 with Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever and the newest one is Lymes. Gotta love horses!
