    Default Oh NO! now Iam paranoid....

    So I found this lady who had one of Chaos sisters. I was so excited because now I had someone to compare weights and pics with. She told me that Fiona had been diagnosed with demodex. UUGGHH!!! Chaos shows no symptoms so Im prayin really hard that he doesn't get or have it. The vet is treating her with Promeris which works wonderful for it, but Im scared of it now that it is being discontinued. We were using it as flea spot on for Chaos, and maybe thats why he has had no flare ups as of now, but now what do I do???

    doesnt mean chaos will have it,as long as immune system is healthy it usually keeps these nasty parasites at bay,try not to worry yourself daft over it or you will drive chaos daft,karen

    I agree with @karenben try not to worry too much, don't fixate. It is probably good that you know this so use it to your advantage and be extra vigilant if Chaos does develop any skin issues

    I agree also. Just because one of the pups in the litter has something.....doesn't mean they all get it. Just keep and eye out and everything will be ok

    Exactly .. it's not hereditary and often it's cause by a compromised immune system. Just keep doing what you're doing ... and if Chaos is not showing any signs now then he could easily NEVER have it.

    What is Demodex? What are the effects of that disease condition?
