Re: [Jamie1503] Any Reliable Vet for Shih Tzu in Klang Valley?

By what you have just said, I guess it really is just a mild mange cuased by low immune system. Just curious, what colour is the shampoo? Normally antifungal shampoos are yellow. Mange takes about 2 weeks to dry up. I used to have a shih tzu and have taken care of a few dogs that had mange.
A tip, if you think it's a fungal infection, do wash Wesley's toys, towels and any of his belongings with a mild clorox solution. My vet gave me this tip, saying that bleach kills bacteria and fungal spores. If you stay in apartment, then it is better for him to heal faster coz less contact with outside dogs and the outdoors. Continue the medication and baths.
Food is kibbles? Well, do change it to lamb, really helps. Even better, if you cook the fresh lamb for Wesley, healing would be faster coz cooked bland food is mild to the digestive system and contains less preservatives that are found in dogfood. Chicken and beef can cause food allergies, some dogs are allergic to these proteins and can only tolerate lamb or fish.
I dunno much bout corn syrup but it should be ok coz it is a sweet substance like maple syrup or honey that is used in most human foods but too much is bad for health.
Have you tried Subang area's vets? Mayo Clinic, SJ Animal Medical Clinic, Healing Rooms... they are good vets.
Willy, my beloved shih tzu (22 March 1994- 8 August 2005) May you rest and live happily in Rainbow Bridge with the rest. You will forever be deeply missed by all.
