I'm sorry Simba is sick.

If the symptoms only started about a week ago, it sounds like it might have been caught early. In the acute stage of tick fever your dog is going to be very sick, but I believe there is a very good chance that he will recover. Treatment usually lasts two to three weeks and from what you say he has only been on antibiotics for about a week. It is important that you try to get your dog to eat anything you can get him to eat to keep up his strength (chicken, hot dogs, anything he likes that you can entice him with).

I have pm'ed Dr. Lee, an excellent veterinarian that we have on, who will give you some good information.

Just sending for Simba that he starts to feel better soon.
