My 10 month Toy Poodle Charlie has been itching, scratching, licking for too long. It is getting worse and the medication isn’t helping him.
The Following is what has been done:
1- Tritop Ointment 10g/twice a day
2- Ivermectin Oral/.1mls once a day for Mites
1- Skin Scrap
Brand of Food:
Dick Van Patten's Natural Balance Original Ultra For Puppies through
Same brand, grain free (two weeks ago)
Sweet Potato & Chicken, grain free
Sweet Potato & Chicken, grain free, small breed
I notice that his stool is dry; I believe is the grain free diet.
Please help my Charlie; he is a such good puppy.
Hi ,Poor little Charlie the poodle. Yes, mange mites can take some time to control. Glad you did see your Vet for a skin scrape test. Looks like your diet and treats are all excellent choices.
I would only add 2 supplements to your daily program :
Pure salmon oil - just 1/4 teaspoon per day for dry stool and dry skin.
I get mine from here: Pure Alaska Salmon
Artic Paws Salmon oil
NuVET Plus wafers - Just 1/2 wafer per day - LET's Boost that Immune system. Pets that have had mites tend to have a weak immune system. NuVET will also help to stop the itching.
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 1 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 (he didn’t like the wafers), 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.
