Duck hunting...

:roll: So my bird aficionado decided to test his skills at the little mud hole filled with ducks. I thought cool, time to see if my service dog has retained any instincts. He did his thing and the next thing I know a mallard is going after my boy. In the end, my crying boy lost a chuck of fur betwee...

Re: Am I doing the right thing?

Duke and I live in a 2 bedroom apartment and he's more than content just going outside to do his business and come back inside. He's my service dog so he gets out with me (not necessary exercise). We still manage to keep his girlish figure.

Duke passed the Public Access Test this morning. He is officially my service critter! He had some lamb lung to celebrate.

Re: Demodectic Mange

Thank you so very much. My boy is 21 months old and you wouldn't notice the demodex if you were looking at him. The sores are tiny, sparse bad don't give off a smell or any fluid. It seems confined to his undercarriage (inside of his legs and belly). I suppose his undercarriage being white helps. I ...

Re: Demodectic Mange

Thank you for the heads up with the shampoo. The vet didn't mention anything about that or using the ivermectin topically. Definitely food for thought. We are ramping up the doses of ivermectin from .23cc to .6cc to .8cc and finally to 1.2cc in about a week for 3 weeks. He's under a lot of stress th...

Demodectic Mange

Well my little guy has been diagnosed with Demodectic Mange. He's been biopsied and put on Ivermectin. Today he had a scraping and there were still mites present. Tomorrow morning he starts Ivermectin, Cefpodoxime, and 5mg doses of Prednisone. Ugh!

Re: Meet Duke...

Sorry for the long lapses between updates. Duke had a localized bout with Democratic Mange. It's been a 3 week ordeal. So while that's been going on he's been staying at Brigadoon. I picked him up this morning and it was like a kid seeing his dad after a deployment. My homie, as I call him, has sear...

Re: Meet Duke...

Hey everyone. The Duke and I have had another awesome weekend. He's got a hot spot-type thing going on so because of topical spray from the vet he's stuck indoors, out of the rain. Makes for a very unhappy Brit. I'm anxious to see if I get Duke over the whole thanksgiving weekend, that would just be...

Re: Fatty Tumor Removed - Pain Meds

Lots of puppy hugs and prayers going out to you and Ginger. I'm following this conversation and I'm in shock. In treating my pain and injuries I was given that exact same dosage of Tramadol. Wow! Poor girl. In my experience with Tramadol all I recommend is keeping a good eye on Ginger.
