It will be later this evening at the earliest before I can find out. If there is a standard treatment then perhaps your Vet could arrange it to be tried with your dog.
    I asked both my children the question on best human treatment for MRSA. I haven't yet heard back from my son who works the night shift but my daughter who works at the VA [ and I know from what she and my son have told me that the VA has seen many patients with MRSA, my son also has worked for the VA but now works for Shands] anyway here is my daughter's reply: "Topical Bactroban can work.. If it's small and localized. Otherwise IV drugs." If I hear otherwise from my Son I will also post that. Perhaps your Vet can use Bactroban [ I am not aware of its availability] but as I have stated I know that the VA has treated many with MRSA and if its the go to treatment perhaps this can help. I certainly hope so.

    oh my. this is not good news but im sure there must be a treatment as humans get cleared up all the time. perhaps now they know what it is they can better get it under control. im wondering if bev has any thoughts on this. @Twice you can give probiotics, vit c, and coq10 to help build up his immune system.

    I was thinking that too, I was googling different probiotics, I've had one site recommended in the past so I'll probably just get them from there. Anything that helps! I had never even heard of coq10 until now.

    Thank you so much for talking to them about it, I really appreciate it I had someone else recommend bactroban too but when I looked it up I found out it's not available over the counter I'll ask my vet if there is something similiar that I can get from them.

    I believe MRSA can be picked up in the soil too.. Anyway the people one can. One of the reasons they say we should remove our shoes when we come inside.

    Boosting the immune system and tea tree oil shampoo. I'm going to send you a link to a holistic site that I go to a lot. Try the shampoo. The results from the testing are astounding!

    Tessa.....ask them for bactroban. Take it to Costco and have it filled. It's about $17.00 for a 22 gram tube. If you are a member and sign Samson up for the Costco Member Prescription Program, it will be cheaper.
