Had anyone had any experience with the above before? Bella has been having skin issues for a month or so now and we finally went to the vet yesterday and he said she may have mites. We've got her on a course of antibiotics, she has had a steroid shot to stop any itching and we have to wash her every few days with malesab and clean her ears every second day as well and I've given her advantage (I think its called... what ever it is, its bloody expensive) it apparently helps prevent a few types of mites. It is already looking better so fingers crossed it clears up in the next 10 days or we are off for skin scrapings.
I am not sure how she picked it up, I would have thought if one had it all of our animals would have it but Harley is perfectly fine.
