So we just got our little lady from the Humane Society today. They wouldnt treat her for Ring worm and not exactly sure if that is what she has but they were pretty sure that is what it is. they were going to put her down cuz they didnt want to treat it!! ugh!! well we got her… I cant get her into a Vet till Tuesday do to the weekend and the holiday on monday... Do you have any suggestions between now and then for her skin problem?? I know it can be spread to Humans very very easy. there are spots a few on her head and most of them are near her rear but on her back and it just looks like fur is missing and its very very dry, a few are red... I am def. getting her treated asap, but i didnt know if there was anything I could do before then. THANKS
Well, for starters, thanks for helping out the shelters and their unwanted pups. Second, don't let her lick them at all, and a little bit of tea tree oil can be helpful, but you will still need to get to the vet.
We are photo addicts here, so we always welcome new photos of everyones little furry loved ones. (and others as well)
Im not sure what it is I am just going by what they told me at the Humane Society. We are getting her seen on Tuesday either by our vet or a vet that goes to one of the pet stores here cuz I want to get her treated asap! i will have to take a few pictures later and post them on here.
thank you everyone… i have noticed that she isnt really scratching at where the spots are but she is keeping the area around it very clean. i just wish the vets were open tommorow ugh!!! dang holidays lol. i havent gotten a chance to take pictures of it yet since she was playing with my son most of the day. she is loving him sooo much.
well i couldnt find a good vet in the small yucky town to get her into until 3 weeks from now. So my last resort was to take her to this vet that has a little clinic at a local pet store here on tuesdays. All he did was look at her and told me he dosent think it is ring worm but some parasite but def not mange and gave me some liquid i am suppose to put on the spots until they are gone and to take her back in 2 weeks. So… I am going to get her into the Military vet we use as soon as they can which is about 3 weeks to get it checked again.
It doesn't sound like you have the best on call vets in town, but hey, they usually know what looks like ring worm and mange. Do you know the name of the liquid you were given?
I hope you well, and that it goes away soon. Hopefully by the time you go to the regular vet, it will just be to make sure everything else is good.
