Demodectic Mange Problem
I found a stray dog that has been diagnosed with demodectic/red mange. Unfortunately I don’t have the funds to get the recommended dipping, it would be close to 400 dollars. Does anyone have any suggestions?
There are a few cures, but you need a vets help. Demedex mange is caused by a weaken immune system, so will need ongoing treatment, so it won’t reoccure. Ask your vet about ivomec treatments, or heartworm meds with ivomec. Word of warning: Some vets WILL NOT use ivomec, it is by far the cheapest treatment for mange, BUT it is also highly toxic, and a very small overdose will kill your dog. Once given there is no treatment. And some breeds are more suseptible to ivomec.(Collie breeds)

Manifestation of Mange
I had taken care of so many dogs,street breeds,no pedigrees before,all had healthy coats regardless of the food they consumed but the same breeds today are very sensitive to mites and allergies.I had observed those with white coats are most vulnerable,those with mixed coat colors,the white portions seem to be the first to manifest symptoms.
I think it has a lot to do with how poorly bred many of these animals are today. You never see pups from a good breeder get mange, but most of the byb dogs I pull into rescue and most of the pet store dogs I see have some mange.
Causes of Mange
When the mother is not cared for properly and the owner has no care for good nutrition through the pregnancy, then comes on Yahoo Answers the day of whelping to ask stupid questions, you know there are going to be immune deficiencies, among other health issues.
Years ago I never even heard of Demodex mange, now I see it in just about every rescue dog we have. My newest puppy foster just started losing hair and is scheduled for a trip to the vet now, and his breeder fed the mom donuts the whole time she was pregnant.
