Henry is 9 months old and recently diagnosed with localized demodectic mange (about 6 small spots). He is currently on ivermectin oral treatment and will have a follow up skin scraping in a few weeks to see how treatment is working. I know from the vet it isn't contagious to other dogs and is often seen in younger dogs whose immune system is not fully developed. Henry was a rescue for me, his breeder dumped him at a local rescue when he was only seven weeks old (some story about how the adult dogs were attacking him or something) Anyway, I have had him since then, but have no idea about his lineage obviously. Has anyone here had experience with demodectic mange and their dog? I know dobermans can be prone to it. At least, according to wiki. I would be curious to know how treatment went for you and what you did. Also, Henry has no issues otherwise. The rest of his coat is thick, shiny and soft. And, no allergies that I've noticed and he eats a good diet of Nature's Variety Instinct kibble.
