@senjisilly the shelter doesnt provide any after care, they send you with a record what theyve done to your vet. They treated her for round and hook worm but not tape which i thought was odd since it was very visible that she had them. The worms i saw the other day were even a sign to me that the liquid medicine my vet gave her was not effective at all..theyre literally useless, hence my search for a new vet

Hey there, me again! Just looking for some help on another health issue. We've been battling some type of skin allergy/reaction to either fleas or something else.. the vet isn't sure if she has/had scabies/mites but treated her for it today. She actually doesnt have fleas but my guess is at one point she was really infested based on the amount of tapeworm shes battling. Her skin is red, itchy, no scabs or wounds..no hair missing but her skin is warm {hot spot) theres a TON of dandruff, scratching licking biting etc. The vet said a food allergy is uncommon at this age (3 1/2 months). Shes on prednisone for the 2nd time as well as an antibiotic and has had 2 medicated baths, yet she seems to still be suffering. My heart is breaking for her. I'm doing everything possible, i'm already broke and its been maybe 3 weeks since we got her. If anyone has been thru this please let me know. I'm looking for a new vet but not a lot come highly recommended where i live. Thanks for listening!

Hi! I was wondering if anyone haf any good recommendations/info regarding tapeworm. She has been dewormed from the shelter and our vet twice for several parasites but was only hit once with a tapeworm med. I administered it last Mon but still seeing a large amount passing. My vet isnt the greatest as i'm looking for a new one. He didnt look at her stool long enough to agree with me today but i'm well aware of the fact that she has a heavy amount passing. Any OTC meds that anyone has used and knows works well let me know.
Thank You!

@njdeb haha aww okay. I'm from Jersey too! We're possibly getting stationed in Cape May for 4 years so i was pretty curious about how she'd do up there. Good to know i'll need to take her winter shopping as well ha! Thanks for responding 😁

@senjisilly i read in quite a few different places that looking at their teeth is an issue. She wont let me do anything actually but she does let me hold her. Its been a rough week. As with any dog/breed you need to be sure theyre a fit for your family and so far if she is a B I'm struggling to believe itll work out but we're trying! I appreciate the input and guidance, thank you!
