    Default Demodex ( How many dips?)

    Hello everyone. My 6 month old puppy had a mark on his head and I brought him to the vet who did a scrape and she came back and said he has demodex. He has had 2 dips so far and I am just wondering those who have went the dip route. How many dips did your puppy have and possibly what can I look forward to. Thanks Hero

    Sorry. Most of us that had Dermodex didn't have dips. It took me 8 weeks going the topical route with one small spot.

    I sent you a PM with a decent site and all the treatments are mentioned there, but not a time limit. Is Buddy getting any results with the dips?

    Just got on here, so if it was a small spot I would have gone the topical route, as dips are hard on them. We had a Beagle many years ago and it took 3 dips. Some times you need to be patient, as a lot of the views are from guest that can not post.

    i think @elearn did the dips ill tag and see. they also say do some immune boosting like probiotics and some have used neem oil on the fur to help kill the mites.

    I dont have any experience with this. I do know that adding yogurt (probiotics) to help boost his immune system.

    I, too, find it odd that the vet recommended dips when it's just one tiny spot. But I don't think there's a limit for them. It varies with each vet. Don't forget to boost Buddy's immune system since that's how the mites take over.

    oh yea, it will take a few dips because of the life cycle of the mites. i think it's about a 3 week life cycle from egg to adult, the dips will kill the adults, but not the eggs. that is why it takes maybe 2 or 3 dips. was Buddy positive the last time you took him - did he get a scrape?

    please keep checking him to make sure there are no new spots, if you see new spots ask the vet to scrape those too.

    in the meantime, you're doing all the right things to help him fight it internally. he should be over it in no time. but remember he is still recovering from parvo so that is a lot going on with him right now as he's healing.
