PostSubject: advice before a trip to vets   Fri Nov 21, 2008 2:43 pm

over the last couple of weeks my pup nearly 6month old,well ill start by saying a couple weeks ago i noticed her chewing at her side now ive checked her out regularly and noticed a slight change in th colour and length of her fur it feels like she been slightly shavede on 1 side now ive thuraly cleaned her cage out and changed her bedding to see if that was the problem but this pup pees on her bed so i took it of her a few week back she seems very happy with this but she also started with this prob now she isnt in the cage untill night time and hasw been bedding on cage floor in the house so a few day ago i got a rug from market and tried that the problem hasnt gone away the pup is flead and wormed with treatment from vets so it isnt that now before i go spending stupid money on treatmen at vets.the skin under the effected area is completly fine no redness no irritation is vissible is this prob due to sleeping on hard floor your inputs would be grand cheers folks
this is the effected sid it looks much worse on pic than it is


this the normal fine side

well obviously fox carry it and cats are the worst anyway
for passing stuff over to dogs.
the thing is if dogs been flead cats aint ,it will carry on .
only other thing ive seen like that is skin cancer
in my mothers dog .
but thats long gone .i will look into any remidys like .
i no too well the vet situation like Wink

try get hold off them like .Lyme Sulfur or Paramite are recommended after clipping the affected
and ive also heard tea tree oil creams affective .

but make sure all cats are frontlined as its a mite
and cats just carry shit like that for fun mate .
and i will pop this in health sec Wink

a good product for mange (both demodectic and sarcoptic ) is ALUGAN it's a powder and comes in a foil sachet,
you can mix it at various strengths for you particular problem, ie fleas, ticks,mange or whatever just add the powder to the required amount of water and bathe the dog ..... can be used for sheep, cattle etc too,
if used at mange strength will get rid of fleas and tics. hope you can get some ...will save a vets fee.

Can you still get Alugan?,i thought it had been banned by the european health bo**ocks.That stuff is sh*t hot for loads of different skin complants and i myself will be well pleased if you can still buy it,when i lived on the road we used to dip the site dogs(up to 20 at a time has been known)and very rarely did we ever have skin or mange problems.

ive had cases of skin problems in old bulls
but that was in their blood .just since being in the
running dog game ive seen a lot of cases of it .
and attleast its put your mind at ease .
suppose anyone would like to avoid the vet
but suppose thats why they charge the bucks ah .
as pricey as they can be at times .better safe Wink good luck
