Key is, you have had her to the vet and the vet thinks she is healthy. If the Lyme is treated early, outcome will be good. You should consider a yearly tick treatment. Get it from your vet as that will be the best kind of treatment. Your young dog is growing fast and will not gain much weight until she is full grown, nearer 3 yrs. All of her food is fueling her growth right now. Make sure you give her the best quality food and do not over exercise her. Her joints and ligaments need time to strengthen and to knit well. She sounds to be perfectly normal but anytime you see a change in her overall condition or her demeanor,take notes and take her to your vet....just as you have already done. Good luck with her. Enjoy!!
