    Max had demodex when he was a puppy. We did Ivermectin, too. It did eventually clear up. She's super cute!

So we are now on ivermectin. Starting with a small amount daily and increasing every couple of days for the next two weeks. Then, back to the vet for a check up. Keeping my fingers crossed she doesn't have any side effects from ivermectin... We are four days in and so far so good.

    Good news is she is still cute and playful as a puppy can be! You can see the cuteness (and mange spots) in this picture.

    As always, please let me know if you have any advice/words of wisdom.
    Yes, that's the name of the medicane Otis is on, we are on Day 16 - we have not been back to the vet yet, we will once the medicane is gone, it is 30 days worth.

    Again, let us know how that goes as I'm very interested - I'll let you know how Otis makes out after his next checkup.

    Is she still on the mend? How did you make out with Nuvet? I just ordered Nuvet Plus and Nuvet Joint Plus today - hoping it's as good as the website says it is.

    Glitzy is doing well. After two weeks on ivermectin (sp?) she had a negative scrape (no mites) and then after four weeks there was only one mite in the scrape. So I think she will be on it for another month or so. Here hair has grown back really nice and pretty quickly which I think is due in part to both the ivermectin and the Nuvet. So overally she is doing really well but I'm not sure the Nuvet would have done the trick my itself so I am glad we got her on ivermectin when we did.

    Here are some before/after pics.

    Before ivermectin/Nuvet:

    After 4 weeks on ivermectin/Nuvet:

    Hopefully this helps. My vet also said that getting her spade ASAP will help boost her immune system. So we are planning to get her spade as soon as she is off the ivermectin.

    Wow shes looking really good. Otis is doing good mite wise. Nuvet will be coming in early next week. We are having quite a problem with his left front leg. Hoping to get that worked out. Glad to hear Glitzy has come along so well.

    I thought I was doing everything right for Harper. Good diet, Nuvet vitamins, apple cider vinegar in his water - but he got a few red spots the last couple of days. Then we saw his brother last night at the bulldog club meeting and he was just diagnosed with demodex. So off we went to vet his morning and sure enough he does have it. Vet gave us the ivermectin and antibiotics. These poor babies.
