I was at a CE event last week and one of the sessions I attended was on nosocomial infections. They did some testing and cultured MRSA in veterinary staff 2X's more often then in general population. It is something I would be very careful with if you have someone immunocompromised in your household...

any resistant strains of bacteria will also expose you and your family to resistant bacterial strains. I've seen pets give their owners MRSA and vice versa... its not just a rare possibility, its a real concern. Are you frickin' serious? Raven's very prone to MRSA. It's a major concern for CF patie...

Gaud.. maybe I should consider that with Bailey. She's been going on antibiotics an awful lot lately. Maybe she should just bloody stay on them! lol She's probably be alot happier. :dunno: I'll be interested to hear what your vet has to say.

My daughter has Cystic Fibrosis and she will go on antibiotics prophalatically. Sometimes she do a month run, sometimes a three month run. It just depends on what she's culturing. :dunno: I'd say a long term effect would be chronic yeast infections. I give Raven a beneficial bacteria supplement for ...

You know.. I've never even expressed her anal glands before or since. I thought I had read somewhere that always expressing them can cause problems as well. :dunno:

How weird with the Nupro. Arez actually had an anal gland rupture. The vet sent off a sample, flushed it, got her on antibiotics, it healed up and we never had another issue with it again. :dunno:

I usually have a handful of kibble in whatever coat I'm wearing. I'll buy some more high value treats now and again but man... I get sick of smelling like tripe or fish. roflmao

Another option is trying some hibitaine. The vet has recommended that over the years as well for different skin issues. :dunno:

When Venus was an adolecence dog, she got what the vet termed ''pustuals'' in the same area around her neck. It was so long ago, I don't remember him even giving me anything for it. I think he just chalked it up to something similar as the adolecence chin zits. lol They did eventually go away and ne...

Well, out of the five pit bulls I have here, three seem to have some sort of allergies or skin reactions. Bailey's allergic to life, Deeohgee so far seems to have issues with certain foods, and Scarling had a bacterial skin infection but I'm not 100% sure of the cause. Tank and Arez are rockin' alth...

Ya... the whole deal sucks all around. :frown: It's the reason we had to quit fostering as well as decide against showing and getting working titles on our new girl. The kids so wanted to junior handle her. Now, if any of the animals show any kind of issue cropping up healthwise, they go into immedi...
