Did your vet do a scraping at all? If it's all over his body now and scabby, you may want to take him back to the vet (a different vet maybe). It's probably not sarcoptic mange, or you most likely would've got it by now :tongue: but there are other things that can cause yicky itchy skin aside from demodex, including allergies. You also want to watch he doesn't get a secondary bad is it? If it's fairly severe, it may be worth your while to put him on ivermectin (through the vet).

good luck, hope your pup feels better soon

well i ordered Ivermectin and Nustock cream. Man their service is aweosme i got the stuff in 2 days. I put some on him already and will see how it turns out. Have any of you guys tried this stuff. The webiste has some unbelievable results and i hope its true. The Ivermectin is my LAST resort now.

Some of the vet folks here could expand on this. Be careful with the Ivermectin. Had I the medical education I could repeat my vets explination, but used too much or too long can make things worse-though it is used as a typical cure. Apparently, many vets prescribe it incorrectly. Since she is a bully lover, she has had a little more experience with them in particularly. Your vet should be monitoring and controling the doseages. Next time I talk to her I'll get the run down again.
Good Luck.
