Immune disorders

Hey everyone. Stray Dog, I know you guys have treated quite a few animals for demodex and i was wondering what works best. My guy is still on meds and I am worried that this will be a perminent condition and that he may have to be on meds for the rest of his life. Is there anything I can give him that will boost his immune system and help him get rid of this condition once and for all. Right now he is on Ivermectin(sp?) and gets 1.2mm a day orally. Other that that I am not sure what to do. I am also back in Canada with him so I am looking for recommendations that don’t neccessarily involve a vet, unless you can think of a good one I can ask about. If anyone could help me out here it would be awsome.

You should also give a diet free (or very low) in grains such as rice, oats, etc., as the demodex mites live on the sugars (carbohydrates) in grain.

Lazarus has only raw meaty bones, fish, and minced beef and lamb, and blended veggies (occasionally) and is doing great. :wink:

thanks a lot:) I will give it a try. Hope it works, otherwise my dog is going to have a bit of a problem for the rest of his life.
