    My 16 week old pitty has puppy mange. The vet dipped her one time and she was too lethargic so now he's trying "Nextguard" Flea and Tic pill. He said that vets are learning that Nextguard has been curing puppy mange. Any suggestions? What has worked for your dog? Thank you! Cathy~

    My dog is a year and 4 months old and he is getting patches of bald spots along his spine and it has spread on his side. You have to kind of catch it at an angle to see them but it is noticeable. I did research and it looks like demodectic mange. Any advice as to what I can do? He has a vet...

My pup Bam Bam is now 11mo old - he had mange when he was 8 weeks old and a whole host of other issues, but the last few months have been relatively event-free and he got his fur back. Now he has started to lose hair again and the...
