    He is getting to be a big guy.
    The vet said that he will need 6 dips, one each week and she told me that she has NEVER seen a relapse of the mange using this treatment. This decision has NOT been an easy one for me, but we started noticing spots on top of his head, back thigh, and on his back He has also been chewing at his feet, so it has spread… The weird thing about it is that you will notice a slight balding area and then BAM it's scabbed over and red almost overnight. I really don't want this to get out of control...

    Side effects listed were vomiting, sedation, disorientation, unsteady gait, decreased gut movement, slow heart rate… and of course the added coma, seizures and death!!! It is used on dogs to control ticks, mites and lice.

    Oh wow that's a lot of scary side effects..I would prob be freaking out too..we never did that we just did the ivermectin orally and he had a shot of something that gave him severe diarrhea that we had to go back and get another shot to stop..(that was the end of my upstairs hall rugs) did your vet say why she preferred the dips to ivermectin? Poor guy

    From the research that I've done on demodex mange treatments… the dips is the first resort, and then Ivermectin is recommended. Ivermectin has listed some of the same side effects as the dips Let's face it… is is ALL bad whether they take it topically or orally. It's meant to kill these DAMN mites…
