You can, you will simply dissolve in water and administer, but as your dog goes older, its better she swallows it whole directly in the mouth. But it should be noted however that the drugs used for routine deworming is quite different, those ones are usually combination therapy.

Happy new year Sir, The most effective way is by administration of Ivermectin injection (by a qualified professional) in order to destroy the parasite from within, and also get an acaricidal bath like lime sulphur, armitraz, cypermethrin etc to bath your dog every week in order to destroy the parasite from outside. But please make sure your dog's environment is clean and if you are financially buoyant enough, you can get Fipronil® spray for preventive measures.
#NOTE: If you don't have access to a qualified professional to administer Ivermectin inj, you can use the oral formulation (based on professional advice) or Bravecto® a brand of fluralaner. I hope this helps !!!!

Happy new year sir, from what I'm seeing, it's like you've not vaccinated your pup. My sincere advice, is for you to go to the nearest registered vet clinic, get your dog vaccinated and inform your vet about the ticks, he will prescribe an appropriate medication that is compatible with the age of your dog. I hope this helps!!!!

Happy new year ma. In a standard vet hospital, you would be spending close to a 100,000 naira. This is the break down:
Hysterotomy (The main surgery) 50,000
Hematinics (Blood supplements)15,000
Vitamin supplements 5,000
Elizabethan collar 7,000
Post surgical management 15,000
TOTAL 92,000

#NOTE: It may vary according to Location, but the price I quoted above is the standard price. I hope this helps!!!

I have a miniature Lhasa she's not taller than a coke bottle
She always have complications during pups birth
I think her vulva is too small.
Presently,she's on heat and I'm considering if I should still go ahead to mate her.

I understand perfectly ma, We would have to weigh the pros and the cons. Did you get your dog specifically for breeding? or for companionship? or the two? The answer would guide us on the way forward. Due to the complications she is always having during birth, personally I would discourage mating, except under strict medical supervision throughout the duration of the pregnancy. But let me know your opinion so that we can work out something.

Companionship. It won't be bad seeing the mini her(pups) running round

I get, if that be the case, then I'll personally advice ma that you should avoid mating. But if you feel you can bear the risk and cost, then there is no problem. But it should however be noted that, in dogs with this condition, the risk of complications is very high and CS is usually inevitable.

I'm so sorry for the delay, before I recommend anything, its better we know the root cause of the problem if there is any? Also I'll like to know the kind of milk, how often you feed your dog, if you noticed any other sign and lastly the dewormer you used. All these information would guide me in identifying what could be wrong before recommendations.
i sent you a pm sir, kindly assist with your number. Many thanks

My dear friend, my sincere advice is still for you to visit a vet clinic, if you've not visited. Your dog is still very young and needs a comprehensive medical check up and vaccination. As for the barking, be patient and give it time, although you can express your concerns during check up to the vet. If after that still no progress, we will figure out the next step.

It depends on the breed and genetic makeup. Barking is not a sudden process, its a gradual process which usually starts around 7/8 weeks till around 16 weeks. I hope this helps !!!

Good evening sir, I'm so sorry for what happened, but the information you gave me is kind of sketchy. I'll prefer you gave me a more detailed information on the situation, for example; is the area swollen? how painful is the area? etc. This would guide us in knowing the next step, for example, if there is a fracture or not. If the injury is not too severe, a mild analgesic and antiinflammatory would suffice or you can even allow it resolve on its own. I'll be on standby for further assistance. I hope this helps?

Then in that case, you have nothing to fear. Over time it would get resolved. I hope I have been able to be of assistance !!

Hi guys, this thread was created to answer any question relating to your animal health, be it pet or livestock and also enlighten the public about the veterinary profession generally especially for those seeking a career in the veterinary profession. Please feel free to send your questions and hopefully you will get your answers asap. Occasionally we would invite senior consultants to shed light on knotty issues. Thank you

Good morning sir, before I responded to your question, I did a quick background check on your previous posts and found your journey to Vet med very interesting. Before I respond to your question, Sir permit me to digress a bit. Vet medicine is a very lucrative and knowledge exposing profession (as a Vet, you would learn so much about everything, and that gives you an edge in life). But we have two major issues in this profession namely; 1) STEREOTYPING 2) QUACKERY

STEREOTYPING: Most people know very little about the Veterinary profession, hence tend to pass judgement based on hearsays and speculations. Hence you will hear things like; if you study Vet med, you'll be poor, Is it someone that has not eaten that would care about animals?, Nigerians don't care about animals, We don't have Vet clinics in Nigeria, Where do you want to work as a Vet, etc. Hence a lot of people get misled and I'm sad to tell you, this really affected Vet medicine's cut off points all over Nigerian universities and the psyche of students aspiring to be Vets. It would interest you to know that we earn THE SAME THING as our human counterpart, THE SAME ENTRY LEVEL as our human counterpart, which is generally higher than any other medical profession in Nigeria, but how many people knows that Sir if Vet med was as bad as some people say, I don't think the government would be stupid enough to approve the above.

QUACKERY: Due to lucrativeness of the Veterinary profession, Many non-vets have seen Veterinary practice as a quick way of making money via quackery and the result has been disastrous. Although succor is on the way as the VCN has introduced a Unified Veterinary ID card, this I believe would go a long way in curbing quackery.

FINALLY, On your question, large animal practice is largely based on location. For example in the south, small animal practice is more lucrative than large animal, while in the north, reverse is the case. In large animal practice, its better you are attached to a farm than for individual consultancy because most large animal owners are not quite rich and their payment for services is relative to the cost of the animal, hence you can't perform a 50,000 naira procedure on a goat of 15,000-20,000 naira, as a result may not be that lucrative except you are attached to an animal farm where they have a lot of these animals. I hope I've been able to do justice to your question and please feel free to engage me on further questions on any grey area.

First of all, I want you to calm down and put your mind at rest Sir. In as much as I would give you my number, I want you to have it in mind that you would still need to visit a registered Vet clinic. I would not want us to take chances. I'll inbox my number to you.

Thanks alot sir. The issue of changing to vet has caused serious issues with my siblings because they see many vets in my Area collecting cheap money. It has always been human Medicine or anything related to human health. I told them Veterinary is not all about treating Animals. There is Animal products like meat,milk and other produce.I told them about zoonoses but they said it was too good to be true. I even told them about food inspection which they doubted. It is affecting my reading badly

My dear brother, those "Vets" you are seeing collecting cheap money, are mostly QUACKS. There are some "Vets" who would collect 1,000 naira from you to come to your house to vaccinate your dog!!! even here on Nairaland one even claimed to be able to treat Parvo with just 500 naira, my brother no licensed veterinarian would collect that ridiculous amount, its only a quack that would. I was in a WhatsApp group, where a guy in Rivers state said about 4 "Vets" came to his house to attend to his dog, and I kept wondering where he easily found 4 "Vets" when in the whole Niger-Delta region there isn't a single Vet school!!!. My brother this is one of the major issues we are dealing with, but I can assure you that all hands are on deck to address it. I want you to also know that; 'A profession which is not lucrative, does not have quacks'. FINALLY, I want you to remain focused, your are not in this world to please everybody and the grass is not greener on the other side, every profession has its own peculiar challenges. I also faced challenges till I got here and it wasn't easy, it would interest you to know that I had a degree in Anatomy (BSc) before I studied Vet medicine. I'll inbox my number to you, so we can talk better and I can further assist you in anyway I can. Cheers
