Customer Question
This is a follow-up question...
This is a follow-up question that I had last week My dog has sores all over his body. He has sores above his eyes and on his side and he has a large sore under his neck. His paws are really bad and the vet told me that it is allergies, but the sores on his body are getting worse and he rubs his face against the furniture and he cuts the sores above his eyes and they start bleeding. I have an appointment with the doggie dermatologist, but my Father thinks he has mange. I have pictures.

Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years. I would like to assist you.

Did you Vet do any skin scrapings?

Did your Vet do a culture?

What medication is Foster on?

He had the skin scrappings and the doggie dermatologist took a culture, but she hasn't sent it to the lab just yet. He does have Demodex mites and he might have Cushings disease. More test will be needed. Right now he is on Nexgard, I have been using the Douxo chlorhexidine spray, and I give him one Benadryl twice per day. He is also taking a 1/2 tab of Simplicef 100 every 24 hours with food. I bath him twice per week with an antifungal, antibacterial shampoo.

ng a DemSince you are seeing a Dermatologist, would you like me to close this question for you? It sounds like you and your Vets have all under control.
