    Can't take him for a run anywhere local and no matter how careful you try to be you either forget or he gets into it somewhere random. Vets fucking love him coz he pays for their holidays.

    Yup. I have come to despise our local vets. I know exactly what is wrong when I take my dog in and they act like its the first time they have seen him. For antibiotics and prednazone? (Steroid) and the consult I get little change out of 300 bucks.
    They won't let me get a script as it is somewhat reoccurring. They're just thieves as they have no competition.

    Going to try that. Our older EP suffers badly from the Bloody Wandering Jew. Some of our other EP's escape the weakness.

    Bought some of the polaramine tablets. Given the dog 1 tab a day for 2 days. What is the regime for usage please. Chemist thought I was nuts when I explained what it was for then said he did not want to know.

    3rd day and no scratching. So far so good. But got the 2mill tabs. Presume no diff? Great advice. Cheers. Dog is much happier. Trouble is trout fishing is via our rivers which lowland parts are festooned with the deaded wandering jew. Cant scream at the dog because same cover for pheasants.

    Grows anywhere wet. Close to riverbeds etc. On the coast at least. I never heard of it till my dog was afflicted with it. Took ages and hundreds of dollars for the vets to figure it out.

    Thanks for that, not long spent $1600 over a couple of months with a skin specialist" fixing" my dogs apparent food allergy and he's now on a "special" diet that costs $160 for 8kg, that goes a loooong way for a 44kg German Shepherd ........... not! - was hoping for a lightbulb moment,
    going to have a close look at the river where I take him swimming now.

    Yeah I hear ya. I went thru the diet and food thing as well. They never lifted a finger to test anything before coming to conclusions that cost shitloads.

    New vet arrived and did a swab test. Bingo. Wandering jew.
    Hope you sort it.
