Recent Separation anxiety questions

We recently adopted a dog from our local animal shelter.

Hello! We recently adopted a dog from our local animal shelter. After getting her home we noticed that she was scratching A LOT and she had red bumps on her skin. We took her to the vet and they diagnosed her with sarcoptic mange. They gave us three oral injections that we were to give one dose every two weeks. We have given her two doses so far and while her itching has improved she still has a lot of red bumps all over. I was waiting to take her to the vet to see if the second dose would provide better results. How long does Ivermectin take to work to see results? I understand every dog is different. I'm just wondering if I should go ahead and take her back to the vet as I would have expected more improvement. Thanks for your help!JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Using the wrong medication for fleas can be dangerous. You should definitely talk to the Veterinarian. What is the dog's name and age?Customer: Her name is ***** ***** is 5 months old. I just feel so bad for her. Since they stated it was scabies we have been giving her probiotics and salmon oil to help with immune/digestive system as she also had worms and have been washing bedding frequently but the medicine doesn't seem to be helping.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Sandy?Customer: She has severe separation anxiety it seems, not sure is that is relative or not.

Hello - My wife and I are caring for a 16 yo miniature schnauzer who has been healthy - about 3 months ago she exhibited a seizure - leg movements while on her side with barking - I have used Calm from a local store and I purchased an anti-leptic on line that is homeopathic. She continues now about nightly - I am very very reluctant to get phenobarbital or bromide - did that for another old schnauzer in the year 2000 and it was not a good experience. What can we do - our goal is comfort, peace, calm, and we do not want to put her down - we don't believe that way - thanks

How fast can dog bloat come on? Can stress bring it on? Can

How fast can dog bloat come on? Can stress bring it on? Can the use of tranquilizers to calm a dog bring it on? The dog I am referencing is an eight-year-old half Labrador half Newfoundland male. Was fine at 7:00 P.M. when seen by vet in a kennel and dead the next morning with vomit and diarrhea present. NO SIGNS OF SYMPTOMS BEFORE. We fed him twice a day in very reasonable amounts and no exercise right after. COMPLETELY HEALTHY dog when he went into vet for boarding. Was on tranquilizers for separation anxiety. How much pain is associated with this type of death (sometime between 7:00 P.M. and 8:00 A.M. the next morning.) Please answer as thoroughly as possible from an unbiased point of view!
