I went to the vet for a normal check-up with my dog and found out she has ehrlichiosis a tick-born illness.  Does anyone know about this disease?  I either missed the symptoms entirely or she did not show any.  I was shocked.  They asked me if she was experienced any lameness or was lethargic… She seemed perfectly normal.  Poor girl.  Now she is on doxicycline (sp?) Although I am grateful that the vet diagnosed her I feel as though I have no information regarding this disease.    Any info would be appreciated.  Thanks!
