  1. Thankyou so much for the websites, the one on sarcoptic mange was just great! Your right about the first 2 questions the answers are there. As for the third one in regards to the effect on seizures is another one that really can't be answered until we try it. My vet doesn't know for sure but none of us epi owners do either. We live with this everyday hoping and praying that we will make it one more day without the seizure. Thanks again for your help!
  2. I think they said it maybe could be Sarcoptic mange mite? I took her to the vet because she is itching so badly and she had tiny pink spots on her belly, they said it is possible she has mites but they are not sure. I have started to give her the Benadryl to see if it eases the itching before I give her the Revolution. I have 3 other dogs in my household 3 of the 4 are mine plus I have a foster dog all of these are Border collies, none are showing the symptoms of itching at all yet, the vet wants all of them on the Revolution just in case it is mites I did have a friend over with a foster dog that came over from the states and the vet is wondering if maybe that this foster had mites. I know that the dog has round worm, hookworm and giardia which I just found out this week so it is possible that the dog also has mites?? But the dog was in my house for about 30 minutes, although they weren't playing together, but in the same room. My dog is also epileptic so I am overly careful if I give her anything different, especially medication, but I would feel alot better if I knew revolution is safe for a Border before I give it to any of my dogs. Any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.
  3. Can anyone tell me if they have used Revolution for possible mites? I'm a little scared to use it, if it is anyone related to intermectin? They are not even sure if my Border has mites they are only guessing and feel she should take Benadryl and Revolution just in case it is mites. Please if anyone has any experience with this drug let me know your thoughts??
  4. Mine loves to tipp over the water cooler trying to get the water jug to play wtih. She's a water jug junkie!!
  5. I have gone back and did a search on Thunderphobia and I think I will contact my vet, I too feel that this boy will hurt himself if something isn't done. Most times I have been at home with him and stayed with him until it ended. I now see that isn't the correct way either. Thanks for your help and hopefully I can help him before something happens.
  6. Does anyone have any suggestions for BC/Mix that goes into Panic attacks when thunderstorms come through? My foster just goes crazy when ever we have a thunderstorm, I'm talking so bad he tries to hide and climb through walls! If he's in his crate he tries to chew through the bars. I have had BC's all my life and I have never seen anything like this before. I know they can be sensitive to noises etc. I've just never had to deal with it before. Any suggestions would help, I know you can put them on med's but I was hoping there maybe a better solution.
  7. Yes that's Stonie from Bowling Green, he's a real sweetheart!
  8. thanks for your imput everyone, I kind of thought Aussie and something? Not sure because as said earlier he doesn't have the moves like a BC, or the thinking eyes like a BC. Appreciate your help, if I find out what he is I'll let you know.
  9. I picked this guy up on Saturday the rescue feels he is purebred "BC", I'm not so sure? Wondering what we should post him as in petfinder? If you have a minute could you take a look and let me know what you think. http://search.petfinder.com/petnote/displa...i?petid=9639336
  10. Karma will have a new home on Sunday! Fostering her was just great except for that feeling of losing her kinda hurts.
  11. My dogs would go crazy if they could not join the family, even my Foster baby is included with us at all times. I can understand why that poor baby is crying.
  12. She is a sweetheart very well behaved considering what's she's been through. I've never fostered before and I think it's great
