    @Davidh - what do you recommend as immune system booster? I'm going to order some hardy pet vitamins(jus ran out of nuvet) I really think duke battling coccidia these past couple months is the cause of his immune ssystem being compromised.

    @Scueva you can give a spoon full of yogurt everyday, but I think you are doing that already, plus the HardyPet Complete once a day will help too. Any time they are on antibiotics it will also kill the good bacteria in them as well. The yogurt should help with this.

    @Lucy-licious Angie, I think they do it different here. He said we would have to bring her in to the office for the dips, apparently they wouldn't just send us home with that. Although they did send us home with the oral ivermectin to give her.

    Bogey just finished 6 weeks of treatment for this mange. Ivomectin once a day for 3o days, then a rescrape. They stil found some adults, so advised another 2 weeks. Just had a skin scrape last week- all clear. I have him on daily probiotics, and he gets yogurt once a day. Vet thinks he will grow out of the " poor immune" system by 18 months. Just one of those things!!

    I'm thinking that's likely what will happen with Amy...the spot has gotten bigger not smaller so far. She has a few more days of the medicine to finish before going in for the re-scrape though.
