I wouldn't put it past the ivermectin to cause stomach upset--- almost any drug can do that. Hopefully he feels better once he's off it. Good luck getting control of that Demodex! It can be nasty stuff! My dog had a spot of localized Demodex, and I was soooo worried it would go general. Thank goodne...

Thanks, msvette, for bringing up herd immunity. It's a concept not enough people understand. And really- people are always looking for something to blame, and it's always something "mainstream" that they blame and discredit, ignoring all the good science behind it and trusting to folk wisd...

yep- absolutely wash that bedding! The frontline alone would get rid of fleas eventually, but getting the eggs out of bedding and carpet speeds up the process a lot. Good luck with your fleas! If you're impatient, ask them to pop your pup a Capstar. Those things kill every flea on a dog in under 4 h...

yep- though they're more often chomping than licking. They're called "chewing-gum" seizures, also.

Hope your pup is OK! Let me know how he does!

Frontline and advantage are not the same active ingredient, but they are both safe around cats (Frontline is fipronil, advantage is imidacloprid). The big things to watch for are those pyrethrins. Cats are super sensitive. They are found in Advantix (as previously mentioned-- thanks), as well as in ...

Yeah... ouch! As much as I see of wounds and nastiness, it's always the eyes and butts that never fail to make me squirm... It would be good to have it looked at, for sure. It would have to be a pretty long stick to have made it all the way to the abdomen, but a wound in the side of the rectum could...

Well, if you guys have any specific questions, I can pull out my toxicilogy book and look things up for you... But to answer some things: Raw eggs are bad for dogs in the same way they're bad for people: salmonella. Dogs are more resistant to it than people because they build up their immune system ...

Welcome! It's wonderful to hear about such a success story! So many owners that I'll be talking to as a vet will need stories like this to give them hope...

New face! Vet student from Kansas State

Hi! I'm a veterinary student at Kansas State University, graduating this May. Ziggy is my 2-year-old male neutered APBT (?). He was my junior surgery dog, found as a stray on the streets of Lawrence, Kansas. After I neutered him for class I fell in love with his dashing looks and winning personality...
