Thanks Diane, for passing this along.

Who makes petcurean? I have never
heard of it. Saddly it sounds like
the bad food and or packaging
occurred in Texas.

And worse animals have died.

That's frightening.

The name of the manufacturer is Petcurean
The name of the food is Go! Natural
That brand is positioned to compete against foods like "Wellness."

I still think he rubbed in something and once there it
was a problem to get rid of.


Uh-oh... has the vet done a skin scraping to rule
out demodex? It's fairly common in puppies and often
manifests as bald spots on the face. It can be hard
to pick up on a scrape, too - a consult with a
dermatologist may be called for if this persists.

Thanks Dianne,
But oh yes. I insisted she do a skin scraping that day.
It was negative. I did have a person
tell me that one skin scraping can
be negative and still the pup may
have demodex mange?

But finally it is all gone! YAY.

If there is a next time I will have
her do a more thorough skin scraping.

Good for you!!

Yes, that's true - happened to a friend of mine. Her
general-practice vet did a scraping on a facial lesion
and assured her it was negative. A month later - after
several therapies had been tried with no improvement
- she insisted on a referral to a dermatologist. He
took one look, did a much more thorough scraping, and
yes, it was demodex.

But finally it is all gone! YAY.

Indeed and my Vet was going to do another scraping.
Had it not started disappearing like it did last
week, it most certainly would have been done.
As well as a possible referal to another Vet.
Thankfully it did finally heal up.



But finally it is all gone! YAY.

Yes I am very thrilled.
