The One Thing You Absolutely Need To Know About Demodectic Mange

April 27th, 2012 | Posted by stong in Demodectic Mange

According to most people, demodectic mange is one of the worst problems your dog can get. It severely damages the skin and makes your dog look diseased (even though he absolutely isn’t). Worst of all, the mange seems almost impossible to get rid of.

If you’re agreeing with this statement, it probably means that you’ve already tried treating your dog’s skin problem, with no results. It doesn’t matter what you’ve used – Ivermectin, Mitaban, home remedies like motor oil (terrible idea), aloe vera or even vaseline, they just don’t work. It’s breaking your heart but you’ve absolutely no idea what to do now.

But what if I told you that there’s only one thing you need to know to make this turn around? It’s something so simple but yet so important that I believe understanding it is the key to getting rid of demodectic mange.

Okay, enough with the teasing. Here’s your answer:

The immune system is the source.

Your dog’s immune system is the key to curing demodectic mange. If it’s working normally (like most healthy dogs), there will be no mange. If it’s weak, however, it can make your dog vulnerable to an outbreak.

How it all works is a matter that will be discussed some other time, but essentially, your dog’s immunity is the one responsible for keeping out the mites that cause demodectic mange in the first place. Keep it healthy, and it’ll do your work for you. If your dog has mange now, then try to focus on boosting his immunity while keeping up the treatment with medicine prescribed by vets or the home remedy of your choice.

Above all else, just remember that a strong immune system is good, while a weak immune system is bad. Easy-peasy, right?
