I am SO heartbroken! I have just gotten a 5 week old 2 # Jack Russell Terrier puppy. She scratched nonstop from the minute I picked her up. Not only did the owner (not a breeder) not give her any shots, but they did not worm her! I took her to the vet for the 1st time on monday afternoon. We got her on Sat morning. Between those days we played with her, loved on her, kissed her on the head, and even let her sleep with me in my bed. Then we find out that she has Scarcoptic Mange. Now the vet is recommending complete isolation for 2 weeks until this is resolved ( I have a 4 year old son). I can't bear this! She is all alone in her kennel day and night! She cries so much! I really think that if I were going to contract the mange (and it is contagious) that I would have already done so between Sat morning and Monday, right? Does anyone have any suggestions for easing her sweet little abandoned heart or my crumbling one? Thanks so much!
