    I can understand your irritation, I was advised to buy a tick and flea collar for my bulldogs after one of them had a reaction to something. The vet wasn't even sure it was a reaction to tick or flea bite but she still pushed me to buy it even though I said I'm not very interested in collars as my bulldogs play with each other a lot and I was concerned it would harm them. Anyway, bought them to please her and only after having had it on one of my girls for about an hour she started to leak pee all over the place Took it off and gave her a bath and it stopped... From now on I'll listen to my gut feeling regarding things like this.

    Poor baby, hope she gets better soon. I hate using so many chemicals on any of our kids. I hate vets like that. I used to go to a vet my father-in-law recommended & at first I liked it, but over the years I've noticed it's just a revolving door. I especially don't like the owner. I believe he killed one of our cats. So, I finally switched. She's pricy but is 3 minutes away from me. All of the vets & receptionists have been there for 20+years. Good luck! She's such a cutie!

    I'm so sorry this happened. It's frustrating when you're trying to make them better and something winds up giving your bully a bad reaction. Ruckus has "puppy mange" when he was little. It also started with a small patch of hair loss. Initially the vet prescribed ivermectin (BAD NEWS) and Ruckus was vomiting from it almost immediately. The vet (we no longer go to this vet) then suggested some sort of chemical dip. I wound up doing a little research of my own and started bathing him with a peroxide shampoo (I've had good luck with the DermaBenss brand) and ordered Goodwinol ointment to put on the spot. It took some patience but after several months the hair had finally grown back in.

    I can't add anything here. You are doing the right things. I always trust my gut when it comes to my dogs.
