    I have to get it through the vet as the ones online comes from US and its going to get block at custom. It's a Canadian issue when you order any meds online. They will block you. Goes for a lot of vitamins too.

    @Cbrugs he's still a royal pain the the royal a*s. So I guess he's normal. Loll
    It doesn't bother him. Bothers more "me"
    Nothing raw here as Canada again hasan issue with raw, Quebec you still can geta lot of place raw stuff. Canada turns a blind eye as we say when it come to things like that as Quebec will take them on. Probably explains my hard head. Lolll Raw is the best thing on the planet!

    Default Another puppy with bald spots

    Just got back from a visit with the breeder. Louie had a blast playing with his old buddies...he is now passed out. But I showed her the spots and she said staph. So I guess the question is do I want to get rid of it fast and go the medication route or do I want to try and treat it myself.

    Would Nustock help in this situation? It seems to be recommended a lot for skin issues.

    I don't think it's legal to sell unpasteurized milk in Canada- you'd have to go to farm directly.
    Sentinel Spectrum won't cover mange, have to use either Advantage Multi,Revolution, Bravecto, Nexgard or Simparica .

    To treat staph you can wash with chlorhexidine and apply mupirocin or fucidin cream or ointment, if you want to go pharmaceutical route. Nustock is basically a sulfur antibiotic so that's good too. You can also try silver - colloidal silver solution or equisilver spray. Or Vetricyn spray or Banix spray- not sure how these two compare to the previous.

    I'm thinking of making my own colloidal silver for fun- 2 or 3 X 9 volt batteries, mason jar, some wires with alligator clips on both ends, 2 x 1 oz 0.999 silver bars, and an aquarium pump with air tubing and an air stone to stir it. (Apparently the silver wires that you buy on Amazon or Ebay are made in China and not necessarily pure)

    Get NuStock and Dolly Owner is right your Sentinel Spectrum will not cover it. Im not going the antibiotic way unless its extremely necessary but that's me. I ordered NuStock a week ago. Still waiting. I swear it's like pony express living in Alberta.

    So normally I would try to treat myself but I'm back at the ER with Jax...he's not doing well. So depending on what happens with him, I might go the antibiotic route just because it's the easiest and I may not have the time to do all the bathing, ointments, etc. Once I know the deal with Jax, I can decide how to treat Louie.

    Thanks, those do look good. https://www.amazon.com/LifeForce-Col...ct_top?ie=UTF8 But since those are more available in US it's easier for me to just go to a coin dealer or silver/gold exchange and get a pair of .999 silver coins or bars.

    Have you tried making a 5 gallon jug of colloidal silver and using for cleaning
