Hi, poor Shirly has been having this problem with Bryn for awhile.
Here is a post from when it first started and there are several other posts
that have followed. I am originally from Southwest Harbor, Maine - where
are you from if you do not mind saying?

Have you tried the mitoban dip? I have a friend who used it and it worked wonders.

Just a tip. It might be easier on you to have only one thread on this. Just keep adding to it. Then people will read the whole story. It can get confusing for people with info in a few different threads. Also, the more info you give on his condition, the more people can help. I don't think anybody was trying to be unkind, but from the first post in this thread, it didn't sound like your dog was to the vet yet. Just a misunderstanding. We are all dog lovers here and feel incredibly horrile for your poor pup. :(

I hope your boy finds some kind of relief.

do uk vets sell these dips?
I am not positive, I am in Canada. But I googled it on the google UK site and got this page: http://www.dog-pictures.co.uk/dog-care-articles/mange-in-dogs.shtml

It explains a bit about mange in general. It also says that mitaban dips are the only product approved for use on demodex mange in the United States, so I would imagine that means there are more options in the UK. It also says for severe cases you can give oral ivermectin.

Does your vet not have any other advice for you? I would maybe consider finding a specialist. Believe me. Even though dermatologists can be hard to find (or a long drive and very costly), they can sometimes save you $$$ in the long run. They generally tend to know more about these type of problems and what the best treatment is, therefore it could save you many unnecessary trips to the vet, with treatments that might not be the most effective.

Hey Shirley - I was asking thedogmother where she was from because her location
says "Southern, ME" That is the State that I was born in and still have a lot of family in.
:wink:
