dog with lice

Post by onesay » Mon, 13 Jun 2005 04:23:47



Picked up a stray dog a few months ago and it had extremely bad lice... at
first we thought it had been rolling in sand.  Got some special shampoo from
the vet, and doused the dog, combed with fine toothed comb, and changed all
the bedding.  It slightly decreased the amount of lice but not much.
Repeated this process 5 times, and there were far less, but still a lot of
lice.

The vet gave the dog a shot for the lice, we changed the bedding and
continued to comb her.  The vet was surprised when I went back with the dog
2 weeks later to show that the lice were still there.  The vet gave her
another shot.  I went back the following week for a 'final' shot, and now 4
days later the lice are still everywhere, its very bad.  The vet has run out
of ideas.

Is there anything else that I can do?

Shave the dog down and/or consider a different vet who may offer a different
form of treatment.

I thought Frontline was supposed to work with lice?

My last dog, a rescue GSD, came with lice which were effectively treated
with Novan top coat spray before Frontline became popular in the UK. The
spray was awful mind.
