If this is the case, you might need prednisone, but you want to only use that in lifesaving situations, as it will interfere with the antibiotics.

Whateve liver support herbals that you have available would be helpful. I know someone in Costa Rica spoke of a popular brand, but I can't remember what it was.
I would not think she is in the chronic stage--12 days ago she had a negative test--and this 1 was just barely positive! She is full of energy, healthy appetite, a very happy dog. Not arguing, just stating what I am seeing. The vet wil be taking more blood work in the coming weeks.
