she doesnt go out in public except to the vet, or the park in the hours that no one is there. i dont have her around anyone except when people come over. the only person i would have to worry about is my MIL who had stomach cancer 5 years ago who is in remission..

i know i posted the staph bateria that was in her ears on another post let me find them

this really has me worried now...

Barely skimmed the posts so don't know if someone has already mentioned Costco. They ship at no charge so you don't even have to be located near one.

If you do go this route, set up the account in the dog's name, it is simple enough to fix though.

And has the vet heard of such an extreme case like Jesse's?

i have no f u c king idea..i am at a total loss right now.. tonight we go to the vet, which is yet another charge...the vet told me last time that he might try human meds if nothing else works, but then like msvette and missi said, if its MRSA and i or jamie or anyone gets it, we are screwed as well ... its one thing after another, and i cant afford the teca surgery even if i wanted to do it,and it took jesse 2 weeks to recover from the ear flush surgery, and at 8 years old i am very hesitant to have major surgery done due to her having a hard time recovering from minor surgery, and if they miss one speck of bacteria i am back to square one all over again... i just want to bury my head and cry ... its so not fair for jesse...

This probably isn't remotely helpful in this case since we're not talking about a wound, but on the off chance........
