We just took in a Demodex pup who was dropped off at my vets. She is BAD, missing most of the hair on her whole front, secondary infections etc. She's a collaborative effort, my vet is chipping in, one of my employees is fostering and we are all figuring out where and how to chip in for the LONG and costly treatment. The Ivermectin is really the best route (or you could do dips, I prefer Ivermectin) but both take a long time.
One month seems like a long time, but it isn't in the grand scheme of things. The treatment seems like a lot, but isn't in the context of what you will spend over the dogs lifetime. There are no home remedies that will save you money in the long run. You CAN help her out by feeding a high quality food and supplementing with things like Salmon Oil to boost her immune system, but those things are extra money, not less.
Good luck to your pup. I know it is frustrating, but she needs you to stick with the treatment or she will end up looking like the pup I spoke of above.
