cuz i gotta leave for work..this vacation is over.
she has tested positive for demodex...YAY!!!
we have scraped her before and gotten negative results but i was really thinking lately it just had to be demodex and thank goodness it was.
it is a long treatment..i bet for merry because it is so life long term...that like the chi's..buddy and sissy..it will be years before she is finally clear... if ever.... BUT...
it is treatable and if not curable..it is at least manageable and soon merry is going to feel SO MUCH BETTER!
thank you so much ashley..the timing on this was perfect..the mites were there to finally be seen and diagnosed and merry has already started her treatment.
there are some other possible issues...cardiac and liver that showed up on the xrays and exam..and we are waiting on the bloodwork results for more info.
but merry will not continue to be tortured by unrelenting and untreatable undiagnosed itchiness so i am pretty damn happy.
yay for ashley and guilford animal hospital for helping merry with this!
