Yes chief, a lot of factors are responsible for this, which I would highlight later once I'm less busy. But the answer still remain a capital YES although if due process is followed the chances is reduced.

Many thanks sir. He's always in the cage with little exposure to strangers
Excellent sir, continue like that and please avoid mushy behaviors too, like excessive petting etc and also give your dog food rich in animal protein and calcium.

Common factors responsible for vaccine failure in Nigeria:
1) Fake/Substandard vaccine
2) Poor vaccine storage
3) Improper administration of vaccine especially by untrained individuals
4) Vaccinating an already sick dog
5) Not vaccinating at the right age
6) Genetics (although rare in Nigeria)
All the above can be avoided if your dog is vaccinated at the right age according to the vaccination schedule published on this thread, by going preferably to a Vet Teaching Hospital or Standard Vet Hospital where you would have access to well preserved vaccines and access to qualified staffs who would properly vaccinate your pets. Please avoid quacks and don't because of looking for something cheap go for a substandard vaccine because at the end the repercussion is very grave. I hope this helps!!!

Good morning ma, so sorry I've been offline for a while now, I've been very busy. I hope my response is not too late, and if it is then let this be a form of education to others. It isn't advisable to attempt home treatment for your dog due to the fact that parvo is very contagious and can affect other dogs in your home and even environment, hence the need to evacuate asap to a vet hospital. Also as the disease progresses, it becomes very difficult for the dog to feed, take medicines or even fluids and may vomit if you attempt force feeding, hence its only via IV infusion that you can manage your dog, which is not advisable to be done at home except in the hospital by a professional. I believe you love your dog ma, hence do the best for your lovely pet, if it's not too late. I hope this helps for everyone!!!

Good morning Sir, how is the family? Which other symptoms are you seeing? If none, then I'll advice you to give your dog food rich in vegetables and then supplement with multivitamins. For the fish intestine......hmmmm.... I'm not to comfortable, why not the fish instead. I hope this helps?

Good morning Sir and sorry for the delay. First, I'll advice you to change your dog's location to a cleaner and less damp environment
Secondly, Its better you take your pet to a vet clinic where proper examination would be done and perhaps Ivermectin inj may be given to fight the parasite from within. Alternatively, if you don't have access to veterinary services you can get oral Ivermectin in any vet pharmacy and I'll guide you on how to administer
Lastly, get Armitraz bath which you'll dissolve in water and use to bath your dog weekly till you reduce it to fortnightly then monthly. I hope this helps and please update me on any development!!!

Please how can this oral Ivermectin be administered and which do you recommend?

Good morning seun, my cauc came on heat in april and i took her to a male dog for crossing. Left her there for 2 days and upon her return, i noticed she couldn't control her bladder anymore. She was always urinating in her cage and even when she's outside d cage, she keeps squatting to wee but nothing comes out. I suspected a urinary tract infection so i requested for a urinalysis test. D result came out positive for uti and we also did a sensitivity test and got names of drugs dat worked effectively against the infection. But before we got the result, d vet asked me to give her augumentin pending when we get the result. She was responding to the drugs after some days and we just decided to continue giving her the drugs and not the one from the test. After 10days of giving her the drugs, the infection returned with full force. This time with blood in her urine. We placed her on cefixime for another 10days (was one of d drugs recommended from the sensitivity test). She completed the dosage and seemed better. Now 10 days after the end of d dosage, the infection is back. Abeg help a tired dog mum. What do i do now to make the infection go permanently.

You can dissolve it in water and give your dog to swallow. For the recommendation, you can get mectizan®, it has been reported to be very good. I hope this helps!!!

Good morning ma, I'm so sorry about the condition and I can assure you all will be well, please put your mind at rest. If I'm to judge from what you've said above, it's either the infection was not completely cured or there is something in your environment inducing the re-infection. Hence, from the first point, it could be the drug was not strong enough or a brand of poor quality, there could also be error in dosage in relation to the severity of the condition and also poor nutrition. From the second point, it could be from environmental factors; like contaminated environment, utensils etc. Hence before we take our next step, we need to decontaminate. Therefore, I'll advice we go for another sensitivity test, this time around, I'll guide you all through and monitor the progress and advice you on the best brand. If you are convenient, I can send my WhatsApp contact to you for effective monitoring. I hope this helps, I'll be on standby.

Myiasis (Mango fly infestion)

Introduction
A condition where flies lay eggs in a living animal or human's skin or cavities and the hatching eggs eat the surrounding flesh is called myiasis. This can be detected in eyes, ears, nose, mouth, skin, alimentary tract, and urogenitals.

Causes
When some flies like mango fly, bow fly lay eggs on a living host or materials worn by the host
Species affected
All vertebrate animals including humans

Symptoms
1) Small reddish swellings
2) Bad odour from the affected area
3) Pus on the affected area
4) Weakness
5) You might even see the worm coming out

Diagnosis
The diagnosis of myiasis is made by the finding of fly egg in the tissue.

Treatment
Treatment is based on the manual removal of the egg, blocking the respiration of the eggs (some people use palm oil) and/or using egg antiparasitics chemicals. The eggs must be mechanically removed without breaking them. This needs clipping the hair around the area for better visibility and healing. The damaged area is then cleansed thoroughly. Removing dead tissues aids the healing process and antibiotics may be administered if necessary.

Prevention
To ensure prevention, environmental conditions should be clean and dry. No fecal or urine contamination of the hair coat is allowed. Any damaged skin should be treated carefully and weak animals kept indoors. Regular grooming and daily handling the dogs will reveal the myiasis quickly, and the treatment can be started without delay. For humans, ensure clothes spread outside are properly ironed before use

Thank you for your selfless service Dr.
Ok think my dog has this myiasis of a thing
I tried to press out the larva and surprisingly I was able to press two out . I stopped because the wound is opened and I don't have anything to treat it with it. Please save my dog Dr. It's young.
I must admit I made mistake by not vaccinating it. I am ready for all treatments now.
There is also tick on its body which I try to remove manually

Re: Talk To A Veterinarian by Walexz02(m): 12:27pm On Jun 09
Also the wounds are many with some appearing daily
Removing the lava one after the other will be very difficult, is there any drug I can give my dog to kill those larva from inside . The dog is very week. cry

Good afternoon sir, to be sincere with you, based on all you said above, I'll advice you to take your dog to the nearest Veterinary clinic/hospital for complete medical checkup and vaccination. Meanwhile, for the myasis you can rub palm oil or Vaseline around the body, this will suffocate the larva and it would come out, then you can now apply GV over the wound area. For the ticks you can get this drug Bravecto®, it's an oral drug and also Fipronil spray, that would take care of the the ticks externally. For the weakness, you can get glucose solution coupled with Bcomplex and try and encourage your dog to eat. But as I said earlier, your best bet is to take your dog to the hospital where professionals would physically attend to your dog. I hope this helps!!!. And I'm sorry once more

My vet is saying she will come tomorrow to give her injections. I wouldn't mind having your WhatsApp number. Do u mean that she going back to the same spot she used to do her business when she was infected can make the infection come back again?

Very possible ma, infact it's a major route. Then one more thing, please confirm your Vet, to be sure even if you trust her. I'll DM my number to you.

I advice you go to UI Veterinary hospital, it's the most standard. I don't have a WhatsApp group yet, all I do here is basically to give pet owners access to geniue veterinary services at no cost inorder to prevent innocent pet owners from falling into the hands of quacks.
Re: Talk To A Veterinarian by Walexz02(m): 10:38pm On Jun 09
Thank you Dr. I really appreciate your replies.
UI is very far from my side, are you in Ibadan or can recommend a vet Dr. That can help.
You did not mention any drug to be used for the myiasis infection .
Tried removing the larva this night and applied oil as recommended. I removed more than 25pieces.
