My dog has Spotted Rocky Mountain Fever. Anybody have a dog with that disease?

My Golden Retriever, Trevor, has a disease called Spotted Rocky Mountain Fever. He was bit by a tick which gave him it. He's completely blind now. His eyes are shaded over with a blue fog. I have only seen one dog like this before. We visited so many vets all over and no one really said the same thing. Does anybody have a dog with this disease? I just want to know what your vet told you.

    We once fostered a golden retriever who the vet suspected to have Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever. We treated her with Doxycycline (an anti-biotic) twice a day for one month. If left untreated, I've read it can begin to affect certain organs. Was Trevor ever treated with an antibiotic? Also, keep him treated with Frontline or Advantix - flea and tick treatments every month.
