Ivermectin Treatment for Demodectic Mange
I have a 5 1/2 month old pup who was diagnosed with generalized demodectic mange and is currently being treated orally with daily doses of Ivermectin. I did have him checked for the MDR1 gene and the test came back normal/normal before I started treatment. He weighs 62 pounds and the vet has him on 1.3 ml a day. He just went to the 1.3 dosage yesterday, he was started at .2 ml and has been working his way up to this dosage for the last 3 weeks. The vet said this could take 3-6 months of treatment to cure this condition. Just curious if any other members have treated the mange with Ivermectin how long before you saw any positive results. So far I have not seen any noticeable improvements.
