    that is odd, and I was told the mite lives on all dogs, just those with a weaker immune system sometimes allows the mite to become active. But it seems strange, because I hear more and more. My cousin has a chiuawa (taco bell dog) that has it too....hmmmm But I promise the Promeris will make Belly all better

    Allergies I think attack the immune system.... I know it is vice versa, meaning a healthy immune system equals less allergies.

    When the immune system is low, the more likely the mites will produce. Any stress or changes could cause this stress, including allergies, or even rearranging your furniture. So my guess would be, even on the best diet, depending on the severity of allergies, could still trigger these little buggers! I know puppy shots also lower the immune system as well. That is why vets won't give shots to an animal who is sick.

    Molly also has demodectic mange. My vet said to just let it be and it will get better on its own, but to make sure to call him if anything changes. She just has one spot on her neck, it doesn't itch or bother her at all. But its right where she wears a collar, so she's going nekkid for awhile until the demodex goes away.

    I am really starting to notice that spring and mange seem to go together, anyone else?
