Anyone ever do that? For long-term type cases.
http://www.balgownievet.com.au/1_gen_derm_pulsing.htm

I had thought you do it one week a month...guess not! Not even sure if Baytril works for that.

Nina has an appointment today and I am going to ask the vet. I placed an order for her Baytril on June 28 and it won't get here until July 15-I am not happy with that turnaround time-I had some from the vet office (at over 3x the price per pill). Her sores look good, but I am so afraid of them just blowing up again because she's not on the meds.

Anyway...thanks!

Hey, we are just going to have to start calling you link-lady....

That was the perfect link for me. I've been thinking about pulsing for both of my mutts, but I can't decide on the timing. I've been meaning to ask on the tick list, but I don't think anyone is doing it there.

*Not* an optimal solution, but you manage what you have to i guess.

I can actually see this makes some sense for dogs on a long term treatment, the dog should still have some ABX in the system after 3 or 4 days off, but it gives things like the digestive system a bit of a rest.

Jean, KV Pet offers quick shipping at reasonable rates.

Yes, KV does but I went with another good place (seemed so anyway-had not heard anything bad) this time because the pills were less expensive there, so now I will have Baytril ready for the next time she needs it I guess.
I am going to stick with KV from now on and pay a little more. Thanks!


Glad that was a good link! I was thinking of the stomach (though she seems to do well) and frankly, Baytril is really expensive-she's been on it for 3.5 months now I think-and I thought maybe she could start Adequan if I wasn't spending that much on abx every month.

It was decided to take her completely off the Baytril for now and just keep an eye on it since she actually doesn't have any active sores right now!
What I thought were continued irritations are actually scabby type things. She goes on Tuesday to be groomed and I'll keep her shaved in the areas where they come in. She's all healed up NICELY from her biopsy/lump removal. And the second report came in on that from Cornell, from the dermatologist and he agreed w/the furunculosis and folliculitis dx in the first report.

So a good day for Nina-and she got a lot of attention from all her friends at the vet office-cracks me up-from a folder covered in orange stickers to the social butterfly of the clinic!

I am going to keep this idea in mind though-I believe Nina may just have this problem chronically coming and going over time and this might be a good option for her.
