|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.

Husky skin infection problem

Hello, my seven month old husky has started getting these bald patches on his body. The problem started around two months back. Over the course of two months, he has got two ivermectin injections. His daily medicine includes one 10 mg ivermectin tablet, one 50 mg zinc supplement tablet(as per one doctor it is Zinc responsive dermatosis) and omega 3 and 6 supplement along with a skin ointment. Have started cephalexin 300 mg tab since yesterday. But the problem is getting worse. Need help.

You might need to go to a dermatologist, or skin specialist to get on the right meds. If what he has is Demodectic mange (which I'm assuming since he is getting ivermectin intramuscularly and orally), then the treatment is pretty intense and can last for months. Ivermectin usually is the first course of action, but there may be others that would work better. If a treatment is working, then you should be able to see results in the first week or two. Since you are saying that it is getting worse, I'm not convinced it's demodex. Ask your vet for a referral to a dermatologist if that's the route you want to take.
Like mentioned above, shampoo therapy does wonders for skin conditions, but not mange. So in order for us to be able to better help, we need to know what the doctor diagnosed and what specific treatments have already been preformed (ex. skin scraps, biopsies, bloodworm, etc.).
