How long do Mites live in the house and yard?

How long does it take for a dog house and a yard to be free of mange after a mangy dog is removed. My dog digs and lays in the dirt and sand she has piled up. She is 16 years old and I'm going to have to euthanasia her. But, want to make sure I don't bring another dog in to catch the mange. I'm not sure she has mange, or just age. But don't want to take a chance. Thank You & God Bless. -Thomas-

What type of supplements should I give to my dog?

Can you recommend a glucosomaine/msm product for my small dog? He has subluxaing patellas and am trying to hold him stable so wont need surgery. I have him on an enzyme, ligaplex by Standard Process, probiotic, fish oil and the Arthro-IonX. Any suggestions for supplements? I have read some research on the glucos/msm. Your thoughts, and brand too please. Thanks -Macrina-

Dog has Rear Leg Pain

I have a 4 year old female German Shepherd (Charger).  She loves to play ball. This past July, I noticed that she might of strained herself doing so.  I took her to her vet, and the vet did some motions tests on her neck, back, etc and told us it could be sterile meningitis. So Charger was placed on prednisone for a week.  It look likes she got better, but not 100%. About a month later, Charger complained of pain again towards her lower back/hip area. So we took her back to the vet. The vet drew blood for tick diseases and the tests came back negative. She also took xrays and showed us a bit of hip dysplasia. The vet put Charger on Previcox 227mg once daily. It seemed to help, she was more active but still not 100%. Charger had another episode several weeks ago and back we went to the vet. She was given more Previcox, it seems to help, but lately, Charger complains (yelps in pain) after she gets up and will limp her right hind leg. Once she gets moving, she seems to be better. Once she goes out into the yard, she seems better. Could it be leg or back cramping, bad disk or ? Thank you!  -Louie-

My Dog has either Allergies or Mites?

What else can I try to get my dog to stop from scratching? It's his neck and elbows. His elbows are hot spots. Already had him at the vet multiple times. Also took him to the allergy vet and had a greer test. Tried Ivermectin, it did not work. He did a skin tape test and said it was negative. Why did he not do a skin scraping? Food allergy ruled out also. Steroids work great only for emergency. Oatmeal baths from groomers, and medicated shampoo from vet also. Fatty oils in food too, nothing is working. Please Help! -Kathy-

Dog is Experiencing Rear Leg Weakness

My dog has hip dysplasia since birth he is now almost 9 he has been on 5mg of prednisone twice daily for a few years now. He is on dosequin tabs and adequan shots for the arthritis which does seem to help. But is there something else needed for strength on the rear legs or is that just the arthritis? Any of your products help for this? I'd love to get him off the prednisone entirely. Thanks for any help -LoAnn-

Chihuahua with Diabetes

Hi there Doctor, I took my little 5 pound Chihuahua to the vet and they did blood work and said he has diabetes.  The vet said I have 2 options injections or I will put him down. He was rude and not nice. I did not give little Ernie the shot yet. I found Dia-IonX last night and ordered it along with the test strips. I told the vet I wanted to try this option and he told me if I give my dog Dia-IonX he would be dead in a week. I'm so upset and overwhelmed and I do not trust this vet now. I called your number and they said to email you and that you could give me advise. I also can't believe the vet said he suspects cushing's disease but that the test wouldn't show for sure.  It will cost $350.00, and that I will just have to keep getting this test more then once. Ernie seems to be fine right now eating and drinking well should I just give him the 1/2 teaspoon on Dia-IonX when it arrives tomorrow and check his glucose with the strips? Will the product kill the dog like the vet said? Any help with this I really appreciate. Thanks -Dawnelle-
