Lila was about 47 # when we started the ivermectin and her doseage was 1.2 ml. They told me if showed any signs of depression loss of appetite or anything out of the ordinary to let them know ASAP as the dose would neem to be adjusted. Before her recent spay another skin scraping was done and they s...

Well we are back from the vet. There are no orthopedic problems or problems with the muscles. She does feel her foot was irritated by her chewing on it. Infact all of her feet were a little red. She thinks one of the reasons she was chewing on her feet is because she can't get to her belly and she j...

Any ideas anyone?? I am desperate......

I am desperate for some help. Lila was spayed on Halloween, she had complications from the surgery and from what I understand was bleeding. So she was taken into surgery again the following morning and from what I could understand the vet had to reroute an artery. Lila went in on a friday and was ab...

When I was about at my wits end I finally started looking at vets outside of my area. I now travel 45 minutes to go to the vet. I was actually looking for a veterinary dermatologist. And I found one (1 1/2 hrs away). I was actually fortunate enough to find a vet that was closer that consults with th...

Something I did for Lila was make her a cream for her skin. I haven't had to use it in awhile as her skin has been pretty calm lately. I usually don't share my recipes but I know how hard it was for us until we changed vets and got on the right track. This did a world of good for Lila. She had terri...

I don't know if there is an ivermectin cream but what I am giving Lila is a clear liquid and its by mouth once per day. This months dose cost 21.00 and the skin scraping was another 20.00, but thats still way cheaper than 150.00 and I don't believe the oral ivermectin is as hard on the dogs as the d...

We did not do the dips infact our vet mentioned them but said she really didn't reccomend them they are costly and don't always work. 2 months ago Lila was practically bald. She lost a lot of fur even after the start of ivermectin treatment, now she has almost all of her fur back. Due to the stress ...

I have never had a problem with Lila guarding her food from me. The cats are another story and that only happened once. She was eating some canned food, my cat came over and Lila snapped at her. What I did with her when she was a puppy is I would make her sit before she got her food, after she maste...

My vet gives a discount if done before a year old. Having Lila spayed, microchipped, 3 skin scrapings and her ivermectin meds cost came to $172.00 .

Depending on her weight the spay was somewhere between $96-$112 itself.

Lila started out with a small spot on her tail when we first got her. We were at the vet once a month being treated for allergies. I changed vets 2 months ago. Lila had almost no hair when we started going to the new vet. We were on cephalexin 500mg 2 x's per day for secondary bacterial infections a...
