Three days ago we dipped our two puppies in a solution (Pyrithine?) the vet gave us. She said we would need to dip them again in 10 days which we plan to do. However they are still scratching so much that sores are coming up (not to mention crying), we called the vet and she said to give them children’s benadryl to help them relax. Three doses later and one of them is no longer relaxing, but still scratching. What can I do for my puppies???
It depends on the type of mange (there are two types, demodectic and scarcoptic), but it usually takes about 4-8 weeks depending on how bad the mange is.
Do not use anything on the dog (or give it any medication) without first consulting your vet.
Also the oral medication that a poster below spoke of is ivermectin, and it is used to treat demodectic mange. It is very very dangerous because you have to dose it to an almost lethal amount. I do not recommend it. My vet used amatraz dips for my dog with demodex (I do not know what your vet is having you use, but the dip I used kind of smells like mothballs) along with a week of antibiotics to help with the skin infection from itching.
If your dog has scarcoptic mange (the contagious kind) you can use Revolution. It is a topical flea medication that also kills that scarcopties mites. It is kind of expensive, but it works better than any other treatment that I have found.
okay i just rescued a dog from a animal shelter friday. i gave her a bath the next mourning since it was late when we got home and then today i noticed she had red bumps and scabs all over her belly so i took her to a vet. he gave her a shot for itching and some pills for 2 weeks for allergys and i said so this isnt mange that maybe my cat can get??? and then he didnt say anything for a while then finally said he could take a skin craping but its hard to find mange in a skin scraping so then he left the room and came back and said she did look like she had mange (after he gave me the pills and powder for skin and deworming) and said that if it doesnt clear up in a few days to come back so i said lets just treat her for mange now which he said was $35 dipping and he refused!!! he just wants another examination fee. anyways my cat has FIV i love him with everything i have and i am freaking out that if he gets it he might die because when you have something like FIV or HIV the smallest thing can take your life right!?!?! what should i do give my cat a bath incase of? my washing machine just broke today so all of the stuff the dog has touched is sitting there and i caught my cat laying on it im balling here please dont be negative just to be, but someone please tell me the truth on what i should do so my cat doesnt get it. i now i know i shouldnt have gotten a dog but i thought i was saving her life and i cant just go shove her back in the hole she came from but i am keeping her isolated from my cat. i read on a site cats cant get it from a dog unless its touching it frequntly but my cat is a big baby and last night curled up on the couch with me and the new dog and im so scared. i’ve done so good keeping my cat healthy for so long with this fiv and now this. im so scared. he litterly is my child. what should i do for him to stop it now!?!? btw right before i left the vets boxer(dog) came out and was sniffing my dog and the vet grabbed him by the collar and locked him in a room away from my dog, like hello he even thinks she has mange but wont treat her for it?!?! wtf!!!!! does he not understand i dont want my cats to get it i told him like 5 times and felt like an idiot. he was so unfriendly too and just picked my dog up under her arm and carried her with one of his arms while she wiggled.
i don;t have an answer but i just want to say sorry 🙁 i feel sad for you, i have a cat and i love her to death so i can how you would feel.

For those who have eczema you already know that the itching at night could be unbearable. To me it seemed more serious within the evening and also at night. I’d wake up some days with bright red skin, not only from the rash itself, yet from having scratched while sleeping. I’m something of a guinea pig when it comes to attempting remedies to stop eczema itching. Here are a few of the issues I’ve discovered that have helped for me.
Just like a lot of people I take pleasure in a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast now and once more. I was amazed to discover that oatmeal may truly stop eczema itching. All you’ll want to do is fill up a bath with warm water and add porridge oats. You do not want significantly. Use only about 2 cups should you be filling the bath fairly full. Then just get pleasure from the warmth and dip in it. It is possible to make this happen once or twice a week. Just simply keep in mind to wash off prior to you towel dry.
Another natural method to stop eczema itching is to use Vitamin E. Numerous of us are already taking Vitamin E capsules since of all of the wellness positive aspects. In the event you haven’t already begun, consult your doctor about incorporating these to your supplement routine. It’ll have a bit of time for it to be absorbed into your body. When it has you must notice a decrease in how frequently you really feel the need to scratch.
Tomato juice may possibly also play a role in this bothersome skin condition. Though the majority of people choose a cup of orange juice within the morning, for those who have eczema it may possibly be worthwhile to switch over to tomato juice. It’s stated to help calm the skin down and decrease the itchiness which is so frequently associated with eczema and a lot of some other skin disorders too. You will also benefit from the nutritional value of the juice itself.
Try and remove all dairy items for a couple of weeks to see how that benefits your itching at night. Milk, yogurt and cheese may all aggravate skin that is struggling with eczema. In case you are concerned with the loss of calcium, add a calcium supplement to your diet. Guarantee that it has magnesium in it though, as this makes it significantly easier for the body to digest the calcium. You could be pleasantly surprised to discover that your break from dairy has helped to quit eczema itching.
