    Default Update on Walter's Mange...

    It will be 2 weeks on Thursday since Walter was diagnosed w/demondex mange. I've been giving him his antibiotics, weekly medicated baths, and cleaning his spots twice a day plus putting ointment on them. Yesterday I noticed he has a couple more spots cropping up on his head Guess this isn't localized anymore… Ugh!!! I'm taking him to the vets on Thursday for a check-up… I'm afraid his next step may be the dips.

    It's in the hair follicle, so I'm not really sure if I CAN stop it from spreading unfortunately It's really frustrating...

    All dogs carry these mites that cause demodex mange. But for some unknown reasons… it could be stress or autoimmune related they can have an outbreak where they get spots of hair loss, scabs and itchy skin. Remember when Wally had that puppy strangles a few months back?!! I think his immune system has been low since that happened, and then of course we went to Florida. He seemed fine w/Ms. Susan, but I'm sure that he was stressed out about the changes in his routine. Remember that dog Pearl?!! She had a SEVERE case of demodex mange that went untreated...

    Tracey, that sucks! However, Mayhem had to have the dips, which weren't really dips, when he had demodectic mange. I took him to the vet once a week and it was actually "a bath" with a special medication that was left on them for xx minutes. They said that I could do it at home, but you had to be careful about getting it in the eyes and make sure to get it into all of the creases and wrinkles, so I opted for them to do it. He loved going every week and basically dragged me into the vets office, he was so eager (before the dips started, he hid when we got the vets office and hated going). My vet said in his 20+ years, he had only 1 dog that had a recurrence of the mange after the dips and other medications and that dogs owner did not follow his direction and complete the oral medications.

    He will be fine Tracey the dip isn't fun but it will sort it out if it comes to that. But really, I've heard that it might get worse before it goes away, the mites are protesting now, they will give up in time I'm sure of it
