This is a very common question that we get often. What are these spots on my dog's skin. It's spreading could it be mange ?
Is it ringworm ? Help
Please see your local Vet for a skin scrape test. It is very low cost and easy to do . Very quick results right there in the Vet's office. They will scrape a small sample of skin cells and look under the scope. If it is Demodex Mange they will give you some medication to be taken for an extended period of time. Often the drug of choice is Ivomec 1 % . Follow your Vet's directions and do not stop the medication too soon. They may also offer you some DIPS, it's a toxic shampoo.. If at all possible ask if you can skip the dip and just try the oral medications. All these products that will be offered are pesticides . Try to use just one of the poisons they will be offering your pet. All these products will weaken the immune system.
To combat the poison pesticides we use to kill this mite I suggest a few supplements -- helping the body to heal and build up an stronger immune system. Dogs with Mange Mites have a weaker immune system and are being treated with dangerous pesticides .
The Pesticides are often a must have to kill the mites that live under the pet's skin .
Most of my clients take the NuVet Plus Wafer Vitamins or Powder daily.
Here is a Testimonial from one pet owner: There are 1000s just like this:
From May through October of 2009, my dog, A.J., was being treated for contact dermatitis.
In October it was finally diagnosed as Demodex mange caused by a weak immune system.
The vet started treatment to kill the mites causing mange and said the disease was only 10 percent curable.
I was concerned about building up A.J.’s immune system and found information about Nuvet products on the internet. I took the information to a friend in Durango, Colorado, who used to be a vet but is now doing acupuncture. She had a bottle of nuvet wafers on the shelf, tested it and said it would be a good thing for A.J. He is on a fish and sweet potato diet, to which I add NuVet Plus powder , kelp and enzymes.
By January the mites were all dead and A.J.’s fur was growing back. He had another checkup in July 2010, and the vet was thrilled and stated that A.J. was 100 percent cured. This summer we had to make trips to the groomer to cut off the heavy coat of fur. I will continue giving NuVet Plus powder to A.J. for the rest of his life as the product certainly did bolster his immune system.
If your dog has skin problems, mange mites , give NuVET Plus a try ; ~~ THIS Can be given with any drugs your Vet is also giving your pet .. this product is NOT sold in stores.. It's Natural.. Many Vet's also use NuVET Plus on their patients.
