i have a mixed breed dog that is suffering very very bad from mange. I have taken her to the vet and they have done the skin scraping. The vet said that he could not see the mange mite but that he thinks that is what it is. The dog has had three lime dips now but it has only gotten 10 times worse. She has lots of hair loss, red spots with drainage. Some of the spots have a yellowish green puss coming out. She has also been given several shots one i think was a steroid and the other to help with the itching. This has been going on for about 3 months now, progressing very quickly. I first noticed it on her nose. I have seen several different products online to combat it, but not sure what will really work....Please help us!
Hi your vet should be able to give you meds. Don't waste your money on OTC stuff. I've been there, dealt with mange years ago, it was mis-diagnosed so after creams & stuff, finally went to another vet who right off the bat said it was mange & I think he gave me pills but it clear up and went away pretty quickly.
