Already she is itching less tonight..still itching but it's significantly less. The problem is my border collie mix couldn't get the treatment so my other dog will get mites again if this shot kills them off her. My vet said revolution would be used for my border collie mix but it could still kill him..this is so against my beliefs to begin with..everyone on the rawfeeding yahoo group says heartworm medicine is toxic poison to dogs.

But the vet scraped their skin today again and saw NO yeast at all which would indicate fungal..and he said he only saw normal skin bacteria and not even in an excessive amount but normal. I hope I'm not jumping the gun..but it is nice to see my dog not attack her skin endlessly for the first time in weeks.
