Demodectic Mange Problem
My puppy apparently has it. I know that it will eventually go away on its own, but in the meantime I don’t want him to lose his hair or have to suffer through the itching. The vet has given us a shampoo and conditioner for him and that seems to relieve the itching, but it doesn’t seem to treat the actual cause. The vet also prescribed some pills that we’ve already treated him with, but the condition is still there. I’d like to try some old home remedies if they’re safe for him
More About Demodectic Mange
If anyone knows of some kind of home remedy that works for this condition, I’d love to hear it. Thanks so much.
At our clinic we usually prescribe something called Goodwinol, and it’s an ointment that you use to treat the demodex locally. It works by actually killing the mites. You might also want to try a shampoo for dogs that contains benzoyl peroxide, if that isn’t what you are using already.
