I rescued a German Shepard dog while on a cruelty to animals call. Bishop was/is in bad shape but I got him eating and exercising again, but I think he had a bad case of mange. I plan to take him to the vet tomorrow but I need to know what to expect cost and treatment. It is a very extreme case.:help::help::help:

There are two types of mange, sarcoptic and demodex. I don't know much about sarcoptic, but have treated a dog for demodex. The treatment is fairly inexpensive and easy. Ivermectin is given orally for a few months. My vet told me to buy it a Tractor Supply (it is used for swine and cattle). Here are some good resources on mange.
