Read up on homeopathics as well. 1m ledum palustre over three days 3x per day is suppose to help infection. Not sure if not catching at a certain time will make the homeopathic more effective. Try also olive leaf capsule (google for correct dosage) Great for tick borne infections. Also, check out the whole dog journal on lymes homeopathic protocol. Apparently lots of success. Hang in there!
