    Daily dose of Ivermectin for demodectic mange. Treatment will take as much as 6-8 weeks or until Vet gets a clean scraping. Then a recheck in 2-4 weeks. Eyes need attention right away.

We appreciate it very much.
    So sorry you are battling this, glad you found another vet! Yes…other suggestions to look into and read about include: Aloe Vera, ACV (apple cider vinegar), Yogurt, Coconut or other kinds of Oil, Hydrogen Peroxide (careful of this one, from experience, it has caused a negative reaction to my boy and his sensitive skin) and Borax...

    I would stick to the probiotics and fish oil that you are already administering and consider adding ACV to food/water to help his immune system recover from the inside (you can use topically, but it will sting if skin is raw or open, so best not to use until raw/redness is healed) and a blanket/towel washed in natural/sensitive skin detergent (or just w/white vinegar, no perfumes) for comfort. How's his diet??

It really is vitally important to have someone who knows what they are doing with these dogs, as you have found out. I don't know much about mange but at the least I would try some coconut oil on him, it will not hurt and will maybe give him some relief. Hopefully someone who has more experience with it will be along to help you there.
    Believe me, we all know how challenging bulldogs can be, we have all been there in one way or another!
    Please keep in touch and let us know how he is doing (and you!).

    Edited to add, just saw that Helene has given good advice to you.
    Thank you very much. The swelling has gone fown some just started a steroid. Hopefully it will help.

    -20170112_165459-jpg Boyd is doing much better, he looks better, day by day. He went to the eye specialist and has dry eye very bad with alot of inflammation. We are giving him lots of eye lubricant , some medicated, some not. Mange is getting better slowly. Thank you all.

    Such a sweet looking boy. I am so glad to hear he is getting better. My Monty has dry eye and has to have prescription drops twice a day forever! It is not his favourite thing needless to say!! It is just something you have to keep up with unfortunately.

    Keep us informed and give him a big hug from me!
