    you know, they say tree tea oil helps get rid of human lice and also prevents further infestations, so maybe it will do the same for these mites??? just a thought, They are similar so who knows

    I didn't know that about tea tree oil It definitely took away her itchiness, but as soon as I put the ointment back on her she scratched open the patch on the side of her face. I threatened her with a cone on her head, but I'm thinking she's ignoring me I just gave her a benadryl.

    @mbuxx it could be something he was allergic to in his food so it's good that you are switching it to at least rule it out if that doesn't help. Bullies can be allergic to so much... chicken,root vegetables,grain... my last bully had alopecia where her hair would fall out on the sides and her skin would turn dark...never figured out what caused it , but it grew back.

    Stig had mange too. The vet gave us a heartworm med called Interceptor which he had to take for 45 days. We went for a follow up after 3 weeks and the vet said he was clear so we stopped the meds altogether. From what I can recall, she avoided the dip route because she said it can be hard on our bullies, especially if they're still young.

    Oh poor baby! Last year I notice Mocha had a little raised scab. I didnt know what it was but I notice a few days after that she was loosing her hair. I gave her a bath with oatmeal conditioner and I order Goodwinol online. I also found this amazing ointment for dogs 3-Way Ointment Sulfodene. It is great ,It works so fast and you can even use it in humans! I treated the spot with these two things and in less than 2 weeks it was back to normal.Her hair came back in the spot and I had never had any probles of this nature again.

    Thanks so much for all the advice everyone! I got a hold of our mobile vet today and she said if it were her dog she would use the ProMeris so I ordered it from her online store and it should hopefully be here in a day!

    @LisaMarie The goodwinol might have worked if we had caught it sooner.It's spreading like wildfire on her right now so the ointment isn't helping anymore

    Thank you @Luvin My Bullie for the instructions

    @ILuvHudson Thanks and Belly sends her kisses!

    Emmitt was just diagnosed with demodectic mange today and she's putting him on 3 rounds of promeris.
    She's also prescribing some Cephlexin to prevent infection.

    Emmitt is 7 months old.

    Poor Emmitt! I hope to be getting the promeris in the mail tomorrow. Does the vet have you putting it on him every 2 weeks @Emmitt E ? I've been giving Belly benadryl to keep her from itching at it.Hope he's back to normal soon!

    She wants me to apply it every 21 days for three cycles.

    Emmitt's don't look too irritated right now, just bald patches. They look bigger since he was there today. I'm not sure what they did at the office that made them grow. Maybe they shaved around them. Who knows?

    @Emmitt E, yes they will take a scraping of the area. It will actually make the area look larger. Poor Emmitt, I am sure I will get the same answer Friday for Bella.

    Always with me

    Im pretty sure my two have Demodex also. The vet said she thought it was. Gave me a medicated shampoo to use and it wasnt working. I used tea tree oil at the suggestion of a board member and its clearing up. I also ordered Goodwinol online. Hope its here soon
