Demodex and immune support
234 Attachment(s)
Hey all. I got a foster puppy today from Puerto Rico. He is 5mo GSD with itchy generalized demodex. I need some things to help boost his immune system to do in conjunction with tradition medicines. Before he came here he was on ivomec and cephalexin. I will start both of those again. But I would like to know, aside from a good probiotic and omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, if there is something else I can add to help this poor dude.

I did give him a Benadryl tonight, it's all I have, to hopefully help with the itching.

One caveat. I am not going to go crazy. Just looking for a few things, to help. He will be fed kibble.

Neem oil? ACV? Added to food or sprayed on him?

This is a very very nice puppy, he will find a home quickly and I want to support him in his healing as much as possible until that time.

Please ignore my yard. This winter has been evil to it. It is normally a bit nicer looking.

There is a sticky on demodex in this section from when I adopted Rafi. It has all kinds of suggestions.

Thanks I will find that sticky!!!

And yes. My sliding glass door is abominable right now. They are calling for more snow tomorrow, so I can't bring myself to clean it. LOL. Glad to know it's not just me.
