Martha, we do have the Western black-legged tick (Ixodes pacificus) here which is one of the ones more common for anaplasmosis.

We had a situation here with a horse which developed anaplasmosis.  It’s tick borne and I suspect most equine vets would have set up an oxytet iv switching to doxy.  We had the doxy on hand and picked up some oxytet from the vet which they had us administer through a slooow IV injection.  I think we gave oxytet 2-3 times and then switched to doxy.  My daughter is a vet, although mostly small animal, so they were comfortable having us do that.  Perhaps the vet could come a few times to give the oxytet?  It’s the same type of drug as doxy just more effective for starting treatment.
