Doc, thank you for your numerous advice on this platform.
Recently, I adopted an adolescent male Rottweiler and noticed that he scratches himself every now and then. On a closer look, I observed things that appear to be dandruff. The dog loses some hair perhaps due to the scratching.
Pls, I need your advice on a quick intervention to save the dog from the condition.

Good morning sir, I'm so sorry for what you're going through. I'm suspecting mange. I'll suggest you get Armitraz bath and bath your dog with it every 2 weeks, then you can get to a clinic and let a professional administer Ivermectin injection for you, if not possible then you can stay with the Armitraz. Meanwhile, ensure your environment is also clean and separate infected dogs from non infected ones
Re: Talk To A Veterinarian by Pasi: 11:45am On Apr 30
Thank you sir much Sir for your professional advice.
I will follow your recommendations and over time provide updates on our progress.

More power to your elbows, Sir.

You've built enough confidence generally...

Please give me your contact.

Mr SeunH, you're the best....

Good afternoon sir, it depends on the extent of injury. But it would be better if you can quickly snap the injury site as to avoid misdiagnosis, then I'll tell you the next step. But meanwhile get cotton wool, methylated spirit, and Gentian Violet (GV) ready.

Okay, Doc. Thanks a lot for your response. I'll try to snap it later. Meanwhile the wound was as a result of an attack by someone with stick & stone, and he's been limping eversince.

Since it's an emergency let's go like this;
1) CLEAN THE AREA WITH CLEAN COTTON WOOL SOAKED IN METHYLATED SPIRIT OR MILD ANTISEPTIC SOAP
2) THEN APPLY GENTIAN VIOLET OVER THE WOUND AREA
3) GET TO THE CHEMIST AND ASK FOR A BROAD SPECTRUM ANTIBIOTICS AND A PAIN RELIVER Preferably Diclofenac®
* GV is that purple ointment that is usually applied on wound, you can get it in a human pharmacy shop.
I hope this helps!!!!

Dear Doctor,
Could you please kindly explain why dogs' system react wildly to change of food. This can sometimes be frustrating to pet owners though

Sorry for the delay, I had an emergency. Many factors are responsible which could include;
Type of food- Some food are naturally not compatible with the particular specie of dog

Genetic- Some species of dogs are genetically wired against some particular food, hence feeding them with it may cause problems

Age- The age of the dog determines too, at a particular age dog react wildlly to some food till they are matured

Method of preparation- The way the food is prepared also determines how wildly a dog would react to the food.
I hope this helps!!!!

Thank you so much for your detailed response, Dr. Kudos to you for your selfless and diligent work here on NL.
Please can I also apply penicillin ointment?
No. 3: Please is Ciprofloxacin + tinidazole okay as the broad-spectrum antibiotics?
Thanks once again.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't apply penicillin ointment or any ointment at all. They will "cook" the wound i.e the ointment would provide a medium for bacterial proliferation.

Ciprofloxacin + Tinidazole is too much, Ordinary Amoxicillin would suffice sir, you need not waste your money

I hope this helps

Good morning sir, many factors may contribute to the above condition and they include the following;
1) The genetic predisposition of that particular dog. Some Rots may have a genetic predisposition that make unagressive which could be a trait passed on from parent, hence the breeder may be questioned

2) The environment of your Rot also matter, do you raise your Rot as a pet or as a guard dog? it is a decision most clients find difficult to make. Hence they tend to raise their dogs as a pet while they may have intentions to make the dog a guard dog later. As a result don't usually get the desired result later when they want to use as a guard dog Hence, avoid interaction between strangers and even friends with your dog and also avoid keeping your dogs indoors too much, they should be in their cage most times. This would go a long way in grooming them to be guard dogs
I hope this helps!!!!
