MMS for dogs Demodectic mange by Looneygirl 16 mon
Looking for anyone that may have experience with treating dogs with MMS for Demodectic mange (Mites live inside hair follicles). We are not 100% sure this is the problems, no fleas at all. I understand the basics of Demo mange and all dogs have this it only is a problem in a few.
I have not done skin scrap test thru the vet as it can come back neg. even if they are present and she has the systems of small spots ears, eye brows & elbows of demo mange.
I will tell you in the last year thinking it was food allergies. We have done lots to boost immue system of our female 65 lb Female/spayed German Sheppard. She eats better than most humans. Have done restricted diets, taken off any dog food, wheat, corn, tried fish & rice only (meat only can get really expensive with a 1 /12 year old GM). I have done the peroxide/borax dip Mange cure, which is great for rash/open wounds (Teds cure from Earth clinic) I am still currently doing organic yogurt, enzymes/probiotics, fish oil, ACV (in side and out) and out of desperation the last month under vets advice oral IVERMECTITN. Lots of good/bad stories about ivermectitn and I have read most of them in dog or forums. If this does help or help contain the spread it is just taking the place of a good immune system that the body may become reliant on this chemical. I am not trying to be a smarty pants but I have read & read lots of different protocols, experiences and opinions. It is a very deep rabbit hole. I am getting worn out on topical solutions, bathing, treating with meds supplements. I also have a small 10lb mix breed in the house with no systems at all. They have been raised together since pups and are 10 weeks dif. In age. No problems with food, mites or fleas on my little guy at all. I am desperate to get this under control. I do relize that what works for one dog does not always work with another dog. I welcome your experiences and knowledge about this issue.
