Is Prednisone available OTC

Post by JP* » Thu Feb 09, 2017 9:37 am

The antibiotics have been administered in full. No difference in the nose bleeds with the dog.

Unfortunately the Vet feels that surgery would be required to find a solution, thinking it is likely a dental infection or tumour.
Surgery isn't an option for us unfortunately.

After reading the internet I was thinking of trying Ivermectin to rule out a parasite...ie Nose mites etc.

Has anyone given their dogs the Sheep Drench solution of Ivermectin?

Thanks again for the great feedback previously.

I hear there can be problems with certain wormers and some breeds of dog. Hope someone pops in to comment!

yes, I have read on the Internets that the herding breeds can react negatively to Ivermectin.

Just grasping at straws really.
