Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Ask Your Own Dog Question

There are a lot of anecdotal treatments out there that people boast to be effective. This could be an outright fallacy or the pet may well have improved due to strengthening of the immune system and resolution of symptoms. Quite a few of these treatments cause other medical problems (such as the vomiting you mentioned). I've worked very closely with pit bulls in the course of my career and have found two treatments to be effective for demodex for the vast majority: For small, localized spots one can use goodwinol ointment. The other is a daily ivermectin solution given until the fur grows back in and symptoms are fully resolved. Here's an example of a treatment sheet with ivermectin: http://www.hungarovet.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/ivermectin.pdf One does need to approach this cautiously as giving too much ivermectin at any one time can be disastrous and, in the worst of cases, life threatening. Slow and steady wins the race with demodectic mange treatment.
