Thank you! The mange is gone!

HazelRunPack & Dr. Lee, Just wanted to say thank you again for your help and advice regarding Java's demodex mange. It's been 2 months and I'm happy to say that I think the demodex is gone! Java shows no signs of having it. No itching, no hair loss, nothing. I haven't had her retested, but I'm almost positive its gone. I did not give her the Ivomec. I just didn't feel comfortable. I started giving her immune system vitamins and fish oil with her wet food. We also gave her a bath twice a week for 10 minutes with Virbac Pyoben Shampoo from the vet. Every few days I also applied NuStock. Don't know if that worked, but I passed the tube on to a friend and it's working on scars/hot spots for her german shep. So THANK YOU for your help!! I just hope it doesn't come back!
