Hi All. I have a question about shaving Simon, the lord and master of the demodex mite, for treatment. I bathed him the other day with a benzoyl peroxide shampoo, then used a tar and sulfur shampoo, then use the obnoxious lime sulfur dip. I understand that benzoyl peroxide opens the pours so you can get to the buggers, I was missing this step. I see an improvement, he does smell a bit better and is scatching quite a bit less, but the dip was nearly impossible to apply properly. This dog is water proof, the dip just ran off him, even with a sponge, dragging it against the coat. I had more on me than him. Would shaving help get a better dip and get this situation over and done with? Will his coat grow back before fall? I was wondering, as well, why he only had undercoat on his flanks, none on his neck and back. Is this normal? If not, it's understandable, it's Simon after all, this dog does not do normal. We have yet another appointment at the vet's on Friday. Since they didn't know about the benzoyl peroxide, I am hesitant to ask about shaving. Note: my entire property is shaded, so the chance of sunburn is null. Thanks in advance.
