    Default Demodex

    Well it's confirmed Brett has mange. Ointment, dips and medicated shampoo.

    Walter had demodex mange awhile back… it started as one spot, and we did the ointment. And then the spots began to grow… so we decided to go w/the dips. I was a nervous wreck about the dips, but he actually tolerated them very well. We also use Advantage Multi as our heart worm & flea repellant. It has actually been shown in studies to help w/mange. So far he's been fine… NO more spots. Good luck w/your baby!!!

    Yes he needs to have the testing done before he gets the meds. Please don't worry too much about the mange, it is extremely common and very treatable in the early stages. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me about it

    Brett has been lethargy since this morning. Even peed on my bed. He has never done that before. Is all that normal?

    Unfortunately yes… you can either use the poison topically or take internally. I questioned my vet extensively about it, and she was extremely conservative on her amounts w/Walter. His was spreading, and I was worried that it would get out of control. After his dips he would stay at the vets until he was dry so they could watch for any side effects, but let's face it…. it IS a poison to kill the mites. I would NEVER attempt to dip a dog myself, ONLY under a vets supervision.

    I know another member here that used the dips… @RalphieBoy
