Demodectic Mange

Hello peeps, it is me Kaylie. I asked Jaffe to let me have a little "air time".

See, on Monday 30th Apr, MaMa brought me to the vet 'cos my skin was getting red & it is not recovering well...

A couple of months ago, MaMa thought I had food allergy & that was why I had spots on my body. After seeing Dr Kasey & getting some skin scrap done, he confirmed I have this scawy sounding bug on me - Demodectic Mange.

Dr Kasay said that it is due to some weak immune system. I need more yummy supplement to boost my immunity but MaMa don't know which one will be directly beneficial for me in this situation. If any of you peeps know anything, please help MaMa out so I can be strong again!

Anyway, after taking some pills & getting some lotion on my wound, MaMa brought us out on our walkies. In the evening, Aunty Y suggested bringing all of us to the West Coast Dog Run for a swell time. It was all wet & muddy. We did have a swell time but it was Aunty Y & MaMa's nightmare. Check us out...



So, there you have it. I may have some bugs on me, I am still up for a "muddy" good time... licks licks...

Oh that looks awful! You almost have the same problem as my sista Chloe. But she got it just beside her butt. What she's eating now is LAMADERM. Believe me! That's the best dog food brand that will improve your fur & your skin allergies. She's been on it for one week plus now & her terrible shedding has stopped & her fur's growing back nicely. It's soft, stronger & nicer looking! No bullshit! (Excuse my language) Really, you should try it out. It's only Lamb Meal & Brown Rice. Absolutely no corn, yeast, animal by-products, chicken, sugar & other things we doggies can't take. The other thing you can try is supplements too but Chloe's been taking them since the day she was adopted but neh, not working! Only the food LAMADERM's working. Hope in Singapore, they do sell Lamaderm. Coz it's still new in Malaysia...

Hey Kaylie,

Mum said your demodectic mange looks like it's localized, which is GREAT news!!!! It should get better once your immune system gets a boost, and I know it will!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Hi Kaylie,
Here is a treatment we read about:
SOMETHING ELSE YOUR VETERINARIAN MIGHT TRY -- INTERCEPTOR®

Interceptor (active ingredient: Milbemycin oxime) is normally marketed as a monthly heartworm preventive; when it is used on a daily basis, it is effective against generalized demodicosis. This discovery was welcomed by the veterinary profession as finally demodicosis could be treated without labor intensive dipping. The downside to this treatment is expense plus an owner can expect to be using this medication daily for up to 3 months to achieve cure.

INTERCEPTOR MAY BE USED IN ANY PATIENT SAFELY;
THE ONLY DOWNSIDE IS EXPENSE.

What pills are you taking? We read that you should not take any kind of PREDNISONE pills. This can wreck your immune system towards these mites. Let us know what you are on ok??
Luv & Wirey Hugs!

Oh dear poor thing!

May be Mummy can look into adding organic flaxseed oil to your diet. Good for skin, fur and immune system.

You can get the oil from Animal Recovery Centre or from your vet if he stocks it.

Hi Kaylie, sorry to hear about your skin condition. Sounds like u have the same problem as Huskee. We noticed that Huskee started sprouting out 'pimples' all over his body and they r usually red & sore. It will dry up by itself and the skin will become flaky. The vet said it was due to Huskee's weak immune system and prescribed a supplement by the name of 'Immunix' for him, which contains powerful antioxidants. She also gave Huskee a course of Chloramine (anti-histamines) to contain the itch. We also got a medicated shampoo Sebazole which has anti fungal properties to clear his skin. The vet told us to take out all chicken and beef from his diet so Huskee's on a 'fish only' diet. Hope this information helps u & hope u get well soon!

My dear Jaffe,

Could the mange come about because of the less than clean water in the river?

I never let Chelsea into the river. Chelsea (touch wood) has never had any skin problem thus far.

So... the dirty water must be the culprit?
