Hi, folks! After letting the vet know that Maggie's skin was starting to deteriorate again, he asked me to bring her in this morning for some more skin scrapings. Everyone at the vet's office was thrilled to see Maggie acting like herself again -- she was howling, begging for treats and letting everyone know that she had recovered quite nicely, thank you! The techs did say that they were very, very worried about her last week. The vet took scrapings from Maggie's torso (she actually seemed to like it -- guess it felt like really good scratching) and from her back ankles. Mites were present in all the slides. So ... our only choice is to put Maggie back on the ivermectin. Even though dosing is going to be much, much more conservative this time, it still scares me. I will say that I will be much more aware of negative symptoms, especially the tremors. Justthat Maggie tolerates the medicine and she feels more comfortable!
