Question How to regrow hair after demodex mange treatment?

Ok, need advice!

Background: My neighbour's boxer girl (1 y.o) had her skin scraping done during last 3 bi-weekly vet visits - no mites. The dog was treated with ivermac for demodex mange for more than 6 months.

The treatment left her almost bald in the neck area. She also has bald patches here and there all over her body. (generalized demodex). The dog was spayed right after her first heat (I believe, just as heat began, not sure). Last administration of ivermac was 2 month ago.

So, her hair is not growing back. At all. I was surprised to hear that it was 2 months after treatment and her hair did not grow at all. I do not know what to tell him, vet said to him - it will grow back but did not give any treatment. From my research in Inet, the hair should start growing back in a week or so?!?

So, the question is - HOW to help the dog to regrow hair? My neighbour gives her a fish oil (2000 mg every day) but that's all he supplements her with. He feeds her Orijien. Also, if there is any oitment/topical solution - should he shave the areas before applying it?

PS I know it is a Doberman forum but my neighbour is not computer savvy and will not try to research Inet. So I thought I will ask here.)

The treatment itself does not cause them to lose their hair, hair loss is caused by the hair follicles being clogged with mites and debris. My girl's hair grew back very slowly once she got over d-mange and but even still, she has a spot that has never grown back. So it may be that your neighbors dog may never grow back her hair due to the damage that the mites caused.

It should grow back on it's own. Small Puppy demodex is pretty common in Vizslas. My first Vizsla had it and it took 6-8 weeks for her to get her hair bvack even after a scraping.

If it isn't growing back at all, I might have a vet take a look at it.

My current Vizsla puppy took a dive and got road rash. He had several bald patches on his body: nose, eye, ears, shoulder. They are all grown in now and it's been about 6 weeks.

After Saphire's spay, it took quite a few MONTHS maybe 3 or 4 for her hair to grow back.

It take 5 week for mine to re-grow hair. And he's 5 months old. Do you think age s also important on this?

I was told today that combination of higher than maintenance dose of vitamin A, vitamin E, zinc, biotin and Omega3-6 (fish+flaxseed oil) should give good results in very short time! The lady that told me should me her pitbull girl's photos from rescue. This dog was almost bald and the lady swears that the dog started re-grow coat after only two weeks of treatment. Sounds really promising. My neighbour is going to run this advice by his vet. Anybody tried such "cocktail" on your dogs? What side effects to expect?

When Donko had mange we upped his fish oil and vitamin E. Also, I'd pop a vitamin E capsule and squeeze the liquid on to the spots.

Good vigorous rub downs with a rubber mitt or your own hands and fingers, helps bring the blood to the surface of the skin which will help 'warm' up the hair follicles. Your dog will like it too!!!!

Thank you for your suggestion. I will let you know if the stuff worked for him once he has it delivered and used.

As for vitamins supplements, his vet said do not mess with the "system", lol.
