How long ago did she come home with you?

Have there been any changes to the diet? New food? New treats? Bones? Has any human food been fed? Torn up toys or trash? Stressful changes to the environment?

What diagnostics have been performed by your vet so far?

Can you provide pictures of the white insects you're seeing?

No stress or new foods never feed human food to my dog and I don't have a photo of white insect so far just your normal shots check for pet dandruff and that tumor from skin infection
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 11 months ago

It looks like some of the questions I have shared may not have come through.

1) How long ago did she come home with you?

2) What flea/tick prevention is being used at this time and when was it last dosed?

Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 11 months ago

Can you clarify for what purpose the vet is using dexamethasone? This medication is a steroid and not useful against prevention of fleas and ticks. If it's being used, it's probably due to itching caused by fleas. Are you using a topical or oral flea prevention, by chance?

Or is it Bravest I'm not sure by the receipts I'm look ungodly thur
Dog Veterinarian: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 11 months ago

Vanguard plus 5 is a vaccine against distemper and parvo for puppies. Is the line item you're reading Bravecto, by chance? If so, yes, this is an oral tablet given which prevents fleas and ticks for 3 months.
