    HardyPet Complete Vitamins - 2 daily
    ChlorHex 2X 4% Spray, 8 oz
    Chlorhex 2x 4% Shampoo, 8 Oz.
    Benadryl 24mg - 2 tablets 3x a day

    Please don't give up you must relax so she can relax - I've read stress can affect their immune system so if she senses your stress and frustration then how can she fight this battle? She needs extra TLC just like you do and that's what we're here for so hoping you find strength and help here and let's get Audrey back to GREAT! Sending love, prayers & lots of bully hugs!!!
    Thank you so much for your kind words. Audrey is currently on Pyoben which is a follicular flushing shampoo (made by virbac). She isn't on a daily multivitamin but I will look into the brand you suggested. thanks! She is on benedryl 50mg 3x a day.

    and maybe try a skin/coat supplement to see if you can get her skin healthy again? drsfostersmith makes some that I used to use on another dog we had and it worked good. Or if you cant go raw maybe try a raw supplement.
    I have dealt with mange before also and I know frontline worked for me...
    hope she gets better soon.
    She is back onto raw beef. As I mentioned above it is Stella and Chewy's brand because that is certified bacteria free raw. She was on a fish oil supplement before the runny poop started. We will wean her back onto that soon.
    Thanks for the tips about the antimicrobial t-shirts! She currently has some shirts she wears now, but I will definitely have to check out the antimicrobial shirts!

    Just also wanted to say "Thank You" to everyone for your kind words, suggestions, and support. Audrey is dealing with alot of issues and having people to vent to, who really seem to care about Audrey really makes things a little bit easier to bear.

    On a positive (?) note, turns out Audrey DOESN'T have the contagious type of mange (sarcoptic). I found a flea on my other dog, Copernicus, and it turns out THAT is why they have both been so miserable. I am pretty upset because Copernicus is on frontline, but it looks like it's not working. I have heard reports in my area that FL+ just doesn't seem to be doing the trick anymore. I am going to the vet tomorrow to pick up some Comfortis for them both. We by no means have an infestation going on (thank god!) so hoping this at least makes them both stop scratching!

    Audrey is seeming to tolerate her ivermectin and Cephalexin ok. As I mentioned above, still no recent poops so I don't know how that is going, but she hasn't vomitted or had any reaction to the meds.

    Sweet sweet Audrey, sounds like you finally have some good news!! Sounds like she is absorbing all of that food so no poo yet, she probably needs it right now so I will be watching and praying for more good news to follow!

    @Audrey Hepbull I just ordered my pup some of the shirts because they looked really comfortable for outside. If you do decide to order I could probablly help you with the sizing. *hoping* I got the right size ordered. Amazon had some a lil cheaper, but petco is having a sale right now online.
