Demodex mange in a puppy

Berry Haven Veterinary Group Medical Case

Rolex, a 14 week old puppy had a small patch of hair loss on the side of his face. It was slowly spreading but did not seem to worry him. Some of his litter mates had similar lesions according to the owner. Using a skin scrape technique, we could see Demodex Mites.

We treated Rolex with antibiotics, Pyohex shampoo and a diluted Mange rinse twice a week. By 3 weeks the lesion had cleared up and there has been no re-occurrence to date.
