With my dog having Mange (demodex mites) I have been searching the web for help.

Vitamin C keeps coming up...now is that the vitamin C for human or do you need special.....one web site says it has to have bioflavonoids.

Then on to garlic....says its great for parasites......now can you use the garlic capsules or just use it raw?

Even my vet doesn't know the answers ??????

Thanks Luba for the help....
Cod liver oil is actually bad for dogs because it contains too much vitamin A and D......Salmon oil is much better for them. I was also thinking about canned fish but they said it contains too much mercury.

Believe me when I tell you I was searching. I only want the best for them all.....just have to find out what is best.

I gave cod liver oil to my dog for 16 years because he had dry itchy skin and honey it did nothin to him! The Omega 3 fatty acid in it kept his skin healthy and his coat too....but I understand your concern.

The other page that you have...go back there as I found
another site for you that includes holitic type treatment for this condition.

I hope it works out for your poochies!
