"Did they do a scraping for mites on her ears?" - No, but I asked about it because I was concerned about mange. Vet said if it was mites she would overcome it on her own. Would heartgard plus not kill mites? Is there anything natural to put on her ears to help if this is the case? If not I'll make a trip back to the vet to get scrape done.
"Are you positive she doesn't have fleas? One bite of flea saliva in a dogs system can put them into a tail spin." I brush her every few days and have never seen one, when she first got itchy my vet gave me a sample flea meds to kill any that might be on her. For future prevention I will be using cedarcide. But is there anything other than time that can fix the reaction from one flea bite? It would be about 5 months since she had the flea meds.
"Dane Lady: "Panacur like wormers or antibiotics, strips the gut of all good and bad bacteria as well, leaving the digestive track open to more digestive problems and health issues such as Leaky Gut, Toxic Gut and systemic yeast infections. That is why it is critical to use a good probiotic at the same time as treatment. Double dose your probitoics when on medicine or antibiotics, and once a day after that as maintenance.
