Puppy with Sarcoptic Mange?
It has been a week since my puppy has been diagnosed with sarcoptic mange, I have only had her for 2 weeks,so she obviously had this at the breeders. I also have been infected and we are both being treated. THe vet has given her Ivomec oral dosage and she gets another dose once a week for the next 4 weeks.My Dr had to prescribe cream for me, and I have used it twice as directed. My question is, how will I know when the puppy is clearing up, and is there any kind of bath or anything I can give her to get this over with quicker? It also won’t seem to go away on me, anyone have any idea how long it takes to clear up in Humans after treatment? I have called the breeder and she has offered to pay for the puppy’s treatment, but not mine or my older dog’s treatment, who is not infected, but they have to treat him anyway as a precaution. We are going crazy!!! Thanks so much!
What kind of lice shampoo? Can I get it at the drug store or do I need a script? And is it ok to use on my skin?? Thanks so much!
The cream will help your iritation but their life cycle is 21 days. A human is not the right enviroment so they may die off a little quicker but when I got them from our puppy it took about a couple of weeks or so. One thing that helps kill them on humans is lice shampoo.
