    Dear Dr. Feinman,

    1) Can a monthly Lyme Nosode cause a positive SNAP test?

    2) Do you recommend use of SNAP tests or other Lyme test?

    3) What is your opinion of an initial IDEXX C6 test level of 129?

    I have 2 dogs that have tested positive for Lyme with no symptoms associated with the dx.

    1st dog, had two faint blue positives before a darker blue positive and a C6 test of 129. I gave that dog Doxycycline (don’t have the dose handy) for only 2 1/2 weeks. Also gave a small amt of Colloidal Silver daily. A follow up C6 test was done 6 mos. later. That reading was a 10! Deemed treatment as successful

    2nd dog tested blue positive on SNAP test in late Nov.. Never got initial C6 done. Gave dog Doxycycline for the full 4 weeks. March dog shows occasional on and off favoring of front leg.

    4) Should I get a C6 test done OR do your recommend perhaps Cornell U. lab receiving blood sample to test?

    Thank you for your attention to my questions.

    FYI – I give monthly Heartworm and Lyme Nosodes (not at same time, 2wks apart). Years ago, dog with most recent Lyme diagnosis & occasion limp was treated for Heartworm successfully with Nosode & herbs.

    1-No.

    2-Sometimes, tho not usually (as they are [i]usually[/i] very misleading)

    3-They call it positive and requires treatment. I say that it just shows exposure and antibody development and is no indication of disease.

    4-Cornell testing is probably the most accurate test of it’s kind FWIW.

    Also, I do not use heartworm or Lyme (or other nosodes) and rather rely on proper constitutional care for prevention of all dis-eases.

    Dr. Jeff

    BTW-There is a huge amount of Lyme info on this site if you look around and/or search/Google.

    Dear Dr. Jeff,
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR PROMPT & INFORMATIVE RESPONSE!

    You stated that you do not use nosodes but do use proper constitutional care for prevention of dis-ease.

    Other than the monthly nosodes (which I am now contemplating stopping) I also use what I consider proper constitutional care for prevention. This is what I do:

    – feed raw food diets
    – supplement with daily salmon oil, Vit B complex, probiotics, Glucosamine; occasional Vit C, Vit E, Selenium.
    – its been years since the dogs were vaccinated or received monthly oral/spot on flea, tick, heartworm traditional prevention meds.
    – I spray dogs with Quantum 100% Conditioning Spray for flea & tick prevention before walks
    – we get 2 daily walks/runs outdoors; fresh air; sunshine
    – I check the dogs over as best I can but they are very furry Chow & Eurasier dogs.
    – I test the dogs for HW & Lyme 2 times a year.

    QUESTION: WHAT ELSE COULD/SHOULD I BE DOING?

    I’ll keep searching these files to learn more. THANK YOU, AGAIN.
