It seems like there are always a bunch of questions in the close vote queue. As a Moderator my vote has more weight, so I try to stay out of the queue completly.
One of the questions (currently with 3 close votes) is How can spirocerca lupi worms be killed in a dog? it seems like a reasonable question to me. I don't personally know anything about it so I just Googled and found the below. Which implies the question asked is completely valid. If my pet had been diagnosised with the condition, I would look to a site where pet experts answered questions for the best answer.
So why is it that our community is trying to close this and other questions from pet owners?
In endemic areas, dogs should be prevented from eating dung beetles, frogs, mice, lizards, etc, and not fed raw chicken scraps. In Europe, monthly treatment with topical moxidectin/imidacloprid is approved for use in dogs as a preventive for S lupi infection. Treatment of clinical cases is often not practical. However, efficacy has been demonstrated with doramectin (0.2 mg/kg, SC, three doses at 2-wk intervals; 0.4 mg/kg, SC, six doses at 2-wk intervals; 0.5 mg/kg, SC, two doses 2 wk apart; 0.5 mg/kg/day, PO, for 42 days; 0.8 mg/kg, SC, two doses 1 wk apart; additional treatments may be required), and ivermectin (0.6 mg/kg, SC, two doses 2 wk apart) combined with prednisolone (0.5 mg/kg, PO, bid for 2 wk and then tapered), although none of these treatments is approved. The specific breed toxicity associated with ivermectin in Collies and other herding dog breeds also occurs with doramectin. Surgical removal usually is unsuccessful because of the large areas of the esophagus involved.
