    @ryecoon Poor Chapo, he looks so miserable. Have they given you something to put on the head-it looks so sore? It even looks like a hotspot. Maybe you could try putting some Vetericyn on it. We'll see what others think,as luckily my dogs haven't had this problem(fingers crossed).

    I was thinking hotspot too... on his head... need to clean and shave the area so the spot will dry up and heal.

    Mange takes awhile but fur will come back.

    Build his immune system... probiotics, coconut oil and vitamin D will help

    I think his hair will grow back to normal, he's still young. Hope the treatments will clear it up fast so he can feel better <3

    Hello everyone. Here is updated photo of Chapo. Seems to be getting better. I used the shampoo Vet prescribed and stuck with the Antibiotics. This is 3 days after the dip treatment.

    Poor guy! My French bulldog, jazzy, who passed away earlier this year of cancer, came to us after spending almost two years in rescue being nursed back to health. She has severe mange and was bald her whole life. But she had been on the streets for a long time before she was found and was a mess. Fly strike on her big frenchie bat ears, burn marks on her back, and 80% bald. You're doing the right thing with the dip treatments and the baths. You might want to consider vetercyn as others have suggested but maybe ask your vet if that is ok. Chapo will heal up under your care! He looks so miserable but I'm sure it will pass and he'll get healthy again.

    Vet is guiding you well enough. Depending on Chapo's age there may be some further exploration due. If he's over 2 yrs I'd be concerned as to why he's had a general outbreak of Demodicosis. This is usually something that happens before a dogs immune system is fully developed. There may be an underlying cause of his suppressed immune system. Keep this in mind...again, depending on his age.
    It looks like he is responding very well to his treatment so I say keep at it. However, we consider Mitaban Dip as rather "old school" for treating general Demodicosis. We use oral Ivermectin for the Mites along with proper antibiotics depending on what secondary infection exists, if any.
    Chapo is a handsome boy and it appears as though he's improving rapidly thanks to your diligence and a competent Vet. I'd bet he's back to new in 2-3 months. I would not be concerned about dead hair follicles. Consider an E collar if he continues digging at his head...we like the Comfy Cone as it's easier on the furniture and our shins.

    saving as many as we can for the sake of Bullykind
