I have his sister Ronia! I haven't had any health problems with her. She has had all shots, rabies and bordetella. I know who has her sister, she lives a few miles away from me, and she told me that Ramira has demodectic mange. I can follow up with her and see how it is going. There is someone in my club who a puppy with a small spot on their muzzle. He was treating it with the injectable liquid ivermectin. With that it didn't go away and he started to use an athletes foot product and it went away pretty quickly.
I have a question though! My papers will be sent out on Monday to me and my contract says her name is Ronia zum Turmacker. Does your dog have the Radhaus kennel name along with Rowdy? Rowdy was a gorgeous boy when I saw him!

My pleasure tg!
The Tree Tree Oil is pretty potent and I suspect it cancels out the properties of the EO Lavender. Most likely put in to mask some of the Tree Tea smell! So I'd get just lavender and the carrier oil to mix together. Typically, Whole Foods or Health Food stores sell lower quality EO's.
Can be true with some dogs about the socialization part. Do you have friends with healthy small dogs, big dogs and cats that would give an appropriate introduction to your pup and play nice! Also, take the pup to friends and children homes you know for exposure, just not in public places where other dogs have been.
I dosed my dogs differently the the remedies. They got Thuja in the morning and Sulphur at nite for 1 week, then a one week break, then another round. Every one suggests different methods! There are others too.
Feel free to pm me if you need any directions on the EO's etc.
Wishing your Baby good health soon!

Thanks Moms. See below inserts to your questions.

Two other items for your consideration:
Botanical name is Galium aparine and is also known as Cleavers, Clivers, Goosegrass, Catch Grass, Stickyweed and Sticky-Willy.
According to Richo Cech, cleavers is an herb that has been used for centuries and considered one of the best tonics to help drain out the lymphatic system. By improving lymphatic circulation, a critical level of systemic waste management is assisted.
Mary Wulff-Tilford and Gregory Tilford describe cleavers as an herb that enhances the body’s waste management by improving lymphatic circulation, thus “washing” body tissues. It eliminates toxins and waste substances from the body.
Wikipedia explains it as the part of the immune system comprising a network of conduits called lymphatic vessels that carry a clear fluid called lymph unidirectionally toward the heart. Lymphoid tissue is found in many organs, particularly the lymph nodes, and in the lymphoid follicles associated with the digestive system such as the tonsils. The system also includes all the structures dedicated to the circulation and production of lymphocytes – a type of agranular white blood cell in the vertebrate immune system — which includes the spleen, thymus, bone marrow and the lymphoid tissue associated with the digestive system.
The Lymph system, in essence, it is the body’s mechanism to wash your tissues of toxins, passing them back into the bloodstream to be cleansed by the liver and kidneys. When it is backed up and the lymph is thickened with waste and debris, and a lack of water, causing any number of problems. Because of poor lymph flow, fluids slowly build up, waste and debris slowly builds up, and nasty bacteria and viruses accumulate.
A typical starting dose (of the glycerin tincture) for dogs, cats, horses, birds, or other animals, is 0.5ml-1.0 ml per 50 lbs. of the animal’s body weight, twice daily.
Check the label to make sure that it was produced from the fresh plant— otherwise, you might be buying an expensive “nothing.” Fresh plant tinctures, in our opinion, are the way to go.
Here is a great one in liquid form: Standard Process "Cleavers 1:2" Can probably be purchased thru Natural Rearing. If not, you can pm me and I can help further.
Dried wild-crafted cleavers can be ordered from Jean’s Greens and other herbal supply companies. To brew cleavers tea, pour 1 cup boiling water over 2 tablespoons fresh or 2 teaspoons dried cleavers, cover, and let stand until cool. Add the tea to food at the rate of 1 teaspoon tea per 10 pounds of body weight. Refrigerated tea can be kept for up to 5 days.
“Willard Water is one of life’s mysteries (it is a special combination of water, fossilized organics, sodium meta silicate, sulfated castor oil, calcium chloride, and magnesium sulfate). Most people have never heard of it. Those who have, tend to use it religiously, even though they aren’t sure what it is or how it works. They say it improves digestion, reduces migraine headaches, relieves arthritis, improves skin health, heals burns and wounds without scarring, helps balance blood sugar, treats gum disease, supports detoxification, lowers high blood pressure, alleviates pain, and is helpful in the treatment of dozens of other conditions, including cancer.
A greyhound kennel got rid of a stubborn virus when they used Willard Water
Owners of aggressive dogs report a mellowing after the dogs drink Willard Water
Hot spots sprayed with Willard Water can dry up over night
Spraying cut pads with Willard Water not only stops the bleeding but seems to relieve pain
Swelling and irritation caused by an insect bite is reduced
Willard Water cleanses wounds
It promotes healing and if used when sutures are still in, can reduce scarring
It is used in dogs' water and in their food when traveling to reduce stress
It is used as an eyewash
It cleans a dog's ears
It helps keep stress levels under control
It is very helpful for many skin disorders when used topically
It helps relieve dogs of diarrhea
It can be used as a coat conditioner"
For all animals, Willard Water seems to act as a whole-body tonic. That is, it’s safe to use in small amounts for long periods of time, during which it apparently helps to bring into balance all of the body’s systems.
The following doses have worked well for dogs, but so have other concentrations. If you’re experimental, try a little less or more and observe your dog’s response.
For best results, use good-quality filtered, bottled, or uncontaminated water from a reliable source. Reverse-osmosis filtered water is highly recommended. Hard water, which contains high concentrations of minerals, is supposed to interfere with or slow the action of Willard Water.
One fluid ounce (2 tablespoons) concentrate per gallon of water is the strength recommended for daily human consumption as well as for topical application on pets and people. This same strength is a good daily drinking water for animals with acute or chronic health problems or for any animals during hot weather or times of stress.
Use this solution to fill your dog’s water bowl, which should be available at all times. Add it to dry, canned, or raw food.
Dr. DeHaan’s only caution is to start slowly. He introduces Willard Water gradually and in small doses, giving small dogs 1 to 2 tablespoons of the dilute solution daily, adding it to drinking water or food. Medium-sized dogs receive 4 tablespoons per day, and large or giant breeds start with ½ to ¾ cup (4 to 6 ounces).
“Too much too fast can accelerate the detoxification response,” he explains. “If your dog gets diarrhea, ease off a little until his system catches up.” This temporary symptom is the only adverse side effect Dr. DeHaan has seen while treating thousands of dogs with Willard Water.”
This must be purchased from the inventor as there are many copy cats: 1800-447-4793 https://www.willardswater.com/contact.php

Good for you for feeding raw!
I would take Lauri's suggestion and get off of the Stella & Chewy's. Stella & Chewy's caved in about a year ago and started adding a "vitamin/mineral pre-mix" to their lovely food, so that they would be FDA compliant to be able to sell it from chain stores (pet supply plus). Who knows what country that "pre-mix" is coming from! Also, since you are adding extra vitamins to a food that already HAS vitamins/minerals, you could be seeing an overload of one thing or another. If after you try Lauri's suggestion and if you want to go back to commercially prepared raw food, Bravo makes one called "Bravo Basic Formula" without anything in it so that you can add your own supplements. Examples:
Ingredients: Antibiotic-free, skinless chicken necks and bones.
Ingredients: Rabbit, rabbit bone.
Bravo! Basic Formula
Another avenue to feed raw is to add Steve Browns Homemade Dinner Mix to your own ground meat! See Spot Live Longer™ Homemade Dinner Mixes | Product Catalog
Info: Healthy Dog Food Dinner Mixes
"I have held off on Rabies and any kind of puppy kinder garden training due to not wanting him to receive any more toxicity like Bordetella etc....while it is obvious his immune system is not at its strongest." GOOD for you! This would pull his immune system down even further!
"I also have a homeopathic Dr who has suggested some remedies to help him detoxify potential puppy vaccination junk." EXCELLENT!!!! Did he give Thuja? Sulphur? Silica? Or????
"he has been extremely itchy ever since his 12 wk. core shots with Lepto." Why in the world did your vet give the Lepto as part of the core vaccinations? Here is what Dr. Dodds recommends as CORE vaccinations: Dr. Jean Dodds' Pet Health Resource Blog | Dr. Dodds' 2012 Canine Vaccination Protocol
Lepto (and some others) are NOT recommended: Vaccination Schedule Recommendations For Dogs
Lepto article by Dr. Jordan: http://www.dogsnaturallymagazine.com/leptospirosis-vaccine/
"Almost done with the bottle and will switch to Krill oil since I figured I would rotate." Excellent rotation. The Mercola brand is a quality product: Krill Oil capsules (180 per bottle): 1 bottle - Mercola.com
The following natural items are used for mange:
*Colloidal Silver *A combination of Lavender oil mixed with a carrier like almond oil (as the pure Lavender is too strong alone) to be used topically for mange treatment. Apply to affected areas twice daily or alternate with Lemon Juice. This helps to kill the mites without the chemical dips.
Mix 1 teaspoon of Lavender Oil with 5 teaspoons of Almond Oil in a small sterilized glass dish, and rub into area around eyes but not close to eyes as it may sting. Keep dish covered after each use and in the cupboard away from the stove.
Almond "Carrier Oil":
(this is not Essential Oils, just a mixer oil). 4 ounces = $6.25 http://www.anandaapothecary.com/pure-carrier-oils.html#almond
Quality Essential Oils are key. Others are processed with high heat will have an inferior profile.
This page by Homeotoxicologist, Marina Zacharias, founder of Natural Rearing NaturalRearing.com ~ Natural Therapies For Dealing With Skin Problems has more info on mange. You can get these products at www.naturalrearingcom
The NutriScan by Dr. Dodds is EXCELLENT! I have plenty of info if you would like it!

|luvjulius||It's puppy strangles. My Mastiff had this after receiving his vaccinations. The only treatment is predizone. Unfortunately my mastiff had to be but down because of complications from being on very high doses of the pred for a long period of time. If left untreated it can leave scaring on the dog, if I had to do it all over again, I would not give him the pred. There is a small chance the puppy can die without the pred. Google puppy strangles, you'll see that the first sign of stragles is the rash on the belly and muzzle.|
