I am soooo MAD I could scream.... I was at the local stock yard a couple of weeks ago and since DH had insisted that we needed a Great Pry. for the barn, I was looking out for one... Well, a guy there had one little boy that he swore was weaned and was about 3 or 4 wks old. We took him home and loved on him all day, he was a bit lathargic and would not eat the same food that the guy had all day... I ended up going to Feeders and getting some puppy supplement powder and some evaporated milk... I put that down for him and he sucked it up like mad.... He then tried to nurse off of my male dog... not a pretty sight... then the fixed female.... He was scratching and I gave him a flea bath... he was VERY dirty... over the next several days his scratching got worse... we gave him an oatmeal bath twice and I even put some EVOO (extra virgin olive oil) on him since I thought he had dry skin.... I started doing some web searches when I started scratching and determined that he probably had sartopic mange or scabies in people.... I took him to the vet and he confirmed my diagnosis and gave the poor little bugger a couple of shots, a wormer, and after the second visit in a week, we had to lye dip the puppy.... Well it is now three weeks and the whole family has been treated for scabies w/me being done twice.... the puppy having been to the Vet three times and goes again in a week.... I found the guy that sold me the puppy on Saturday and he gave me my money back but it didn't make me feel much better since he kept insisting that there wasn't anything wrong with any of his other dogs.... If a puppy that's just three weeks old has a case of mange that bad, there's no way the other dogs he has doesn't have it.... The Vet said there's no way a three week old puppy no matter what the breed could be weaned.... We're now feeding wet puppy food and some evaporated milk mixture and he's just now grabbing food out of the other dogs bowl.... He had worms so bad that it looked like a bowl of ramen noodles.... poor baby... the good news is he gained 2.2 lbs in a week since being wormed and being treated for mange.... He'll still need another lye dip tomorrow and maybe even another Iverm. treatment.... Lesson learned... I should have gone to Alabama to get the puppy from a fellow BYC user.... Now my male dog is showing signs of mange... AGGGHHHHHH!!
