Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Long story short we got Luna at 8 weeks and she has a beautiful healthy coat. Then at 9 weeks we noticed her eyes were becoming dry and red and her hair/fur was thinning around her eyes also. After a trip to the vet and scraping they found Demodex. They told us it's normal in some puppies due to low immune systems. Now at 12 weeks after anti-biotics and creams it seems to be same if not worse.

Took her back tot he vet for shots this morning and another scraping and she said her knuckles show slight thinning and behind her right leg. Vet wants to keep her on cream and added another one. Said if it doesn't go away in three weeks we should start ivermectin.

My question is has anybody had experience with demodex before? Is it possible that this is generalized and not localized like we orginally thought? HOw long does it usually take for it to clear? any home remedies to alleviate swelling and help rid? and any experience with ivermectin for demodex?


Sorry for all the questions, but just don't like seeing Luna in this state!

Thanks in advance!!
