I took the dogs to the vet today. I had rabies and distemper boosters for Champ. I had a check up for Jas. He said she has demonox mange. He also said he belives she is having a false pregnancy and said he did not want to give me the medicine to treat it just in case she really was. So now I am really hoping that it is just a false pregnancy. He said the demonox is being cuased from stress from the false pregnancy.

Scarlet went through a false preg with her first heat. Did he give you anything for that??? Scarlet got a hormone injection to make it stop somewhat. It helped with her swelling that would not go away. But she still had big tits for a long time. The false preg also caused her other problems like urinary track infections and yeast infections for a while. We had many vet visits because of this. Also have read up that if they get it once they usually get it again next heat cycle. So its advised to have them spayed...I have also read that it can cause problems when and if they do breed...it makes it more difficult for them to keep the pups and make a very difficult child birth...I know that when Scarlet had it I knew nothing about it so here are some if the links if you want to read up on it...
