that is such great news, sue--doxy is one of those scary drugs, to me, because it is SO strong, but damn, when it's used in the correct way for the correct conditions, it WORKS. this is a perfect example of the relationship we deserve to have with our vets--a PARTNERSHIP--they can't know everything, and because we have the ultimate impetus to learn the details of specific conditions affecting OUR companions, we often have access to alternative information that they just haven't had the reason to come across. being open to what other vets HAVE learned, or what we have found in our wanderings is what matters--as with human medicine, WE are the consumers, and if our vets won't work with us, we need to find new vets.
