    I saw improvement in just few short weeks, but all bold spots were totally gone in about two months. Now some people might not believe me, but he doesn't smell at all and we only have to wash him when he's dirty. For the last dog show we washed his feet.
    Also Usko doesn't like veggies. He does sometimes eat pieces pineapple and apple. I'm not able to just give him foods I would like, he picks what he likes to eat.

    I do know that some fruits have high sugar content and high amounts of calories (apples, bananas, etc) and there are others that are lower in sugar (blueberries, strawberries, etc).

    Thanks so much for your input. There seem to be so many ways to attack this!
    The standard way of dealing with it is ivermectin but my girl had a bad reaction to it. She is also inkidney failure so our options were limited. Her demodex was treated by her holistic vet. First thing he told us was no baths. Instead he had me brush her with a wire brush several times a day to stimulate the skin and girt the blood flowing . We doubled her dose of coq10 and added lots and lots of fruits and vegetables high in vitamin c. Strawberries. Oranges. Bell peppers. Canteloupe. Watermelon. Broccoli. Tomatoes ....
    Are all great sources of vitamin c. I gave her as much as she wanted when she has demodex and she still pretty much gets as much as she wants lol

    Hello,

    Actually I have a GREAT additional treatment that I strongly suggest and recommend. Please PM me for the product. No, I do not sell it.

    Here's my story:

    Just the same as in your case, my dog Belle ended up with a very bad case of democodexis. She ended up loosing hair all over. Using the meds, shampoos and food products was working. But the process was so slow, I thought it would never heal. After several months I found a ointment and started using it. It cleared up so much faster. In fact, her coat was so nice that I was able to enter her into dog shows a few months later. No signs of EVER having any hair issues. Her coat now at 2 years old is better than any of the other dogs I have.

    When 2 other dogs ended up getting skin patch issue, I started using the cream right from the beginning and the recovery time was cut down by 70%. I have used it 4 times now and I am CONVINCED of the effectiveness.

    Meds and shampoos are good. This is icing on the cake.

    Good Day~

    Thank you for asking. He's doing a lot of sleeping - a lot, but becomes very energetic when it's time to eat!!! He'll get up to play for a few seconds, then go back to sleep.

    @ealearn
    Our guy never scratched either, but his skin was still a mess with yeast, etc. Finding out the allergies has helped tremendously. I don't end up buying things to try now that he would be allergic to. If you have the $ at some point, I highly recommend it. These guys are sturdy and I think we worry more than them - however, I think many of them suffer in silence and are prone to major allergies.

    if yeasty skin is a problem you can sponge him down with a 50/50 apple cider/water solution. Don't towel dry, let him drip dry in the tub.
