Also a combination of Essential Oils: Lavender oil mixed with a Carrier like Almond oil to be used topically for mange treatment. Apply to affected areas twice daily or alternate with lemon juice. You can use Colloidal Silver as a rotation too. This helps to kill the mites without the chemicals. A good immune support multiple to go along with the Colostrum is Immunplex by Standard Process: Amazon.com: Standard Process Immuplex - 150 Capsules: Health & Personal Care

Thank you. I'm all about natural methods so I have taken a screen shot of this and will try!

BowWowMeow It's demodex. His immune system will take care of it on its own. I would not take him to the vet as they will likely prescribe ivermectin which is not at all necessary. There is a sticky in the Holistic section on how to treat demodex holistically. Rafi had it when I adopted him and it cleared within a few weeks.

HE's a cutie...there is no need for pesticides to treat puppy mange. This is a symptom of stressed immune system, a weak immune system.

A good RAW diet should fix this up in couple weeks. Pesticides (ivermectin or any other HW/Flea/tick prevention) used in a puppy will only further hamper the I.S. Boost it instead with Bovine colostrum.

Yes, this.

qbchottu Sounds like puppy mange. Can take him to the vet for a scrape and treatment or help boost his immune system with high quality food and beneficial supplements like fish oil. Most will grow out of it.

He does have a vet appointment tomorrow for a rabies shot, but I wanted to ask opinions on here, too. Thank you!


Oh and one note, the patch on his arm is where they ran the IV to neutered him at the rescue (not my choice, I think he's too young but they did it before we adopted)

Dogs should not have any vaccinations when they have any type of health issues going on, which your sweet little guy does, so please reconsider until this is cleared up and he is healthy. Also, if he was neutered recently, his immune system has taken a hit which is another reason not to vaccinate now.
He is a cutie!

Harry and Lola Talk to your vet about demodectic mange, some pups get this, usually their mother is a carrier. Harry got it when he was very young, he lost hair around his nose, we did a biopsy and confirmed it was this mange. There are different treatments, last time it flared up (when he was still quite young) I used Advocate which cleared it up. He has grown out of it now and hasn't had it for about 2 years.
