Asked by Geneva Hagge 1 year ago.

My vet just called with my puppies test results and said she has demadex mites. She has been itching for months but she has no sign of irritation etc. I have been told i need to pay £32.40 for a bottle of shampoo and then £23.50 a week for the next 4 weeks for them to bath her in it (apparently its too toxic to do at home). I have just done some research and found that ALL dogs have these mites and a small amount isnt harmful so im wondering if im been diddled out of yet more money for a treatment she doesnt need?? Surely there would be other signs i.e hairloss??? Answered by Dot Mcgrade 1 year ago.

I will write more, but this doesn't sound right to me. Demodex isn't typically 'itchy.' Demodex are part of the normal flora so presence on a scraping doesn't confirm disease although increased numbers would raise concern. Does your dog have any other signs other than itching? Typically, demodex presents with spotty hair loss and red skin, so your pup doesn't seem to fit the profile. Are you sure your dog was diagnosed with demodex mange and not sarcoptic mange? However, if your dog does have demodex I would follow the vets protocol as amitraz is toxic. Typically, demodex dogs don't itch. While this seems too obvious, is it possible your dog has fleas? What about a skin allergy? However, if increased numbers of demodex are present it is hard to argue. Here are other treatment options aside from Amitraz: Promeris (does contain amitraz) and Ivermectin (oral parasiticide). Answered by Shawana Casini 1 year ago.

how old is your pup, if she is still very young her immune system may not be fully mature yet. Your dog has an immune system disorder which will not help her fight off the demodex mites, therefore they over run her system. It is possible that she will get better on her own as her immune system matures, I certainly wouldnt count on that or wait until she experiences hair loss, since she could get some very nasty secondary skin infections along with the demodecosis. If an overabundance of the mites have been found in skin scrapings then she needs the treatment. This is very uncomfortable for your dog Answered by Viviana Viola 1 year ago.

Does anybody know anny cure for mange?Is there anything to make him more comfortable until he sees the dr?
Has an appointment next week. I don't know any history of the dog, was a stray that just came up. lost most of hair and is covered in scales. Asked by Mabelle Garczynski 1 year ago.

It could be sarcoptic or Demadex. Sarcoptic is contagious to humans as well as other dogs. Wash your hands and stuff until you find out for sure. You could give him benadryl. You would need to give him childrens benadryl. The dose is 1 tablet per 25 lbs. Soem dogs get sleepy while others may become hyper. It is usually safe for dogs but when you give it to him for the first time just watch him to make sure he does not have a bad reaction to it. I have never had a problem with it before though. Mange is so terrible for dogs and I am very thankful to hear that you are going to help him. I wish more people were like you. Sarcoptic mange is like Scabies to people and it can be cured, which means that once all the mites are gone they do not come back unless they are recontacted. Demodex is a hereditary mange. This means that the mother or father carried this disease. Every living thing has mites on it's skin even humans. These mites keep our skin clean by eating the dead skin and other microbes. In a dog that has Demodex, their immune system does not keep these mites controlled. So the mites end up doing more damage then good. So in other words, Demodex is more of an immune difficiency than a skin condition. Demodex is not curable. Treatment will kill the mites and keep them at bay. Treatment is with 6 dips or more untill a skin scrape shows all mites dead. Later the owner should keep an eye out for more outbreaks. If an outbreak is caught early the dog may only need oral medication, another dip, or a medicated shampoo to retreat. Demodex may always reappear after treatment. To the Vet Tech- I am also a Vet tech and I have personally seen a white boxer who had Demodex so bad that his skin literally sluffed off in my hands. He looked like the "Resident Evil" Dobermans. This dog was in such agony that we couldn't even do the medicated baths on him. When he barked his face would crack and shoot blood. So in other words, Demodex can be just as itchy and painful as Sarcoptic. Answered by Gabriella Berretti 1 year ago.

Mange can be more successfully treated than it used to be, but it requires persistence and it won't be cheap. However, the long term outcome is generally fine. Part of the management of mange is provided by the dog's immune system. Be sure and minimize the stress to your dog, and feed a quality food. Good luck! Answered by Arnulfo Udinsky 1 year ago.

Our collie had mange and the vet suggested we buy some Maazola oil and put it in her dog food. We ended up making her ground round for some extra oil. She thought she had died and gone to doggy heaven. It took a little while, but it did go away. The kids wondered how the dog rated stove cooked meals. They forgot she was allowed to sleep on the couch bed-with her own pillow. Good luck with your dog. Answered by Jame Tauscher 1 year ago.

Demadex is caused by a mite that almost all dogs have but their immune system keeps the mite in check enough to have no symptoms. An immune deficient dog (which can be caused by stress, poor food or heredity) may show symptoms- still usually it self cures (usually when stress passes), unless the dog stays immune deficient..... SArdeptic mange is contagous. its also a mite -but less common Its also worthy of note that the "diagnosis" in many questions here is made by a layman owner - usually from some hair loss and may well be another condition Answered by Daria Asebedo 1 year ago.

Demodectic mange is a genetic issue. It is caused by a weak immune system. When you see questions about that, you can almost assume it is a pit. They have this issue within the breed. Sarcoptic mange is a contagious mite. Dogs coming from shelters often have this. If your dog is kept in clean, safe conditions, and has no genetic issues, he will probably never have mange. (I have never had a dog with mange, and mine are around livestock at times and in the woods.) Even people who have a clean home can have a dog come down with it if their dog comes into contact with strange dogs often. But it is unlikely unless the dog is in a shelter/rescue situation or is a breed prone to genetic issues. Answered by Deborah Hald 1 year ago.

So, apparently in the last several months, I've developed an allergy to the mites that we all have (all people have mites living on their skin). I've seen 9 different doctors (including 2 dermatologists and an allergist). The doctor that figured out what was wrong has me on a ridiculous amount of antihistamines. They work, but I have side effects from them and if I stop taking them, I'm itching and covered in spots in about 2 days. Has anyone else ever heard of this? I never thought this was possible! It's horrible! Answered by Sabra Spears 1 year ago.

Demadex mites? If so the treatment should be to kill off the mites, as best as you are able rather than just treat the symptoms of the allergy with the antihistamines. A biopsy of the skin or a blood count can show elevated levels of eosinophils, a white blood cell associated with allergic reactions to confirm the suspicion of allergy.

I washed my hands immediately after, but i'm still paranoid. but, since i washed my hands, am i safe? also, how long would it take for symptoms to appear? Answered by Mila Remmie 1 year ago.

well, it depends on if it had demadex or sarcoptic mange. Sarcoptic mange is caused by the same mite that causes scabies (sarcopties scabii -- and I know i spelled that wrong) in people. So it can be transferred from a dog to a person. but I highly doubt letting just the dog's nose touch you would transfer any of the mites to you. You'd have to have contact with the fur for long enough to allow the mites to transfer. If it had demadex, you should be ok regardless. I worked in clinics and shelters for many years, and handeled many dogs with sarcoptic mange and I have yet to have any problems. :) Just relax. you washed your hands, so you should be fine! Answered by Ginny Wend 1 year ago.

You'd have to have contact with the fur for long enough to allow the mites to transfer. If it had demadex, you should be ok regardless. I worked in clinics and shelters for many years, and handeled many dogs with sarcoptic mange and I have yet to have any problems. :) Just relax. you washed your hands, so you should be fine!

would be concerned about mange or demadex or mites a tri to vets is recommended Answered by Quinn Grisham 1 year ago.

I would take him to the vet. My dog has demodex mange and around the eyes are usually the first place that they show up. Usually hair loss is caused by a parasite of some form. A simple skin scraping by the vet should be able to tell you the problem Answered by Stacy Benedix 1 year ago.
