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.
You're always welcome, unfortunately there is no drug to kill the worm inside the body, it was found that it would cause more harm if the worm is killed inside the body without allowing it come out, so I'll advice you to change location, preferably indoors for now then keep removing, if your not convient with the groundnut oil you can use palm oil as I advised you. Which area do you stay in Ibadan? so that I'll help you make inquiries. I hope this helps!!

Good afternoon sir and sorry for the delay. On number 1, you should ensure your environment is clean with no hidden areas and damp free, you can also get Fipronil® spray too and apply it on your dog periodically. On number 2, such drug does not exist, the only thing you can do is to vaccinate your dog against rabies, but still avoid dog bites because of germs in your dog's mouth. On number 3, it's not advisable also because of the reason above. I hope this helps!!!

Good evening sir, on the first question, I'll advice you to be patient, you're still on track and there is no cause for alarm but be observant all the same. On the second question, it could be a skin condition like ectoparasitic infestation or any condition that can irritate the skin. On the last question, just simply give food rich in protein and calories also supplement with fruits and vegetables like carrots and spinach. Please don't hesitate to ask further questions, for areas you aren't clear, I hope this helps!!!

Good morning ma, and I'm sorry for the late response. Drs say parvovirus is 50/50, but from experience, I personally believe if detected early, the prognosis is quite good. For now, I'll advice you to hydrate your dog, keep your dog calm and be calm yourself, isolate and avoid contact with other dogs pending your visit to the Vet. Please update on any development, I'll be on standby. Sorry once more for the condition

Thanks doc. I'm afraid it wasn't discovered early. I've been seeing some drops of blood on the floor for over a week now but I dismissed it as the females having their period (there are 3 females and one male btw). It was yesterday that we discovered that one of the females was not eating, all the food forced into her mouth was vomited almost immediately, then she passed very watery bloody poo this morning. It was when I googled the symptoms that I saw she most likely has parvo (she wasn't vaccinated at birth sad). Now she has lost so much weight and can no longer move. I've searched for vets around my area using Google maps but my husband thinks it's something he can handle. Can such case be effectively treated at home?

She has already been isolated from the others since yesterday when we discovered something ain't right with her and we have been keeping her hydrated by forcing water into her mouth using a syringe. Anything other than water that goes into her mouth gets vomited immediately. Does ORS work for dogs?

Good morning sir, on the first point, NO, there is no relationship between eating egg and worm infestation, it's just "old wives tales". On the second point, depending on her age, her food should be rich in protein, vitamin and carbohydrates, in the manner I arranged them. Rice garnished with carrots is good. Meat, Fish, Eggg etc are also excellent sources of protein. I hope this helps!!!

We need to treat this urgently. I'll tell you the steps to follow to preserve the life of your pup temporary while I search for a qualified Vet for you. But I won't be able to tell you here on NL since some of the drugs I'll be prescribing are controlled drugs which is unethical. Hence I'll dm my number to you, then I'll prescribe medications to you and how to administer them step by step. I'm so sorry once more.
