    Default Samson tested positive for MRSA

    Last November Samson got a skin infection. Antibiotics cleared it up then it came back a month or so later. This then became a cycle. This last infection has lasted 2 months and 3 different antibiotics could not clear it up so they did a culture, came back positive for MRSA So sad, I cried when I got the voice mail. Now we have to be really careful so Dave or I or our beagle Loki doesn't get it, well that is if he hasn't already given it to us! No more kisses, no more Samson sleeping in bed with us like he has for his entire 7 years of life Anyway hoping to hear from anyone who has had to deal with this before.

    Took this picture the other day, he's so darn handsome

    I know absolutely nothing about MRSA so all I can do is send thoughts and prayers your way.

    I know next to nothing about MRSA but there are a few here that might. That should be along shortly. My thoughts and prayers go out to you.

    Sorry to hear that I know from talking with my children who are both RN's that it is nasty and hard to control. I will ask both of them as they have seen quite a few patients with MRSA what has become the go to antibiotic for it for humans [if there is an agreement on such I don't know] and will report back with what they tell me. 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.

    Thanks everyone, he's on two really strong antibiotics right now. We picked them up on Saturday, he's on them for 2 weeks then we go back for a recheck. What we do next depends on how he responds to these antibiotics.

    MRSA can be killed...and by a variety of products. Research these and visit the
    link I'm PMing you...I know how worried you are but there is hope & healing.
    Much love for you & handsome Samson.

    Things that kill MRSA are Oil of Oregano, Manuka Honey, Colloidial Silver and others.
    So...do not despair, dear friend!

    It is important to boost his immune system w/antioxidants & probiotics to restore
    healthy gut as the antibiotics have destroyed it (why he got MRSA). I'd wait and
    research and perhaps NOT give him any more antibiotics at this point. GOD bless!

    RIP beloved boy.

    Are you going to take him to kraemers office for a second opinion? Might wanna call over there and see if you can get his opinion about it?

    Oh Tessa My heart's breaking because he needs to be isolated like you said. I would seek second opinions too, even from holistic vets. Don't give up!
