My dog Fred is nearly 4 year old 82 lb yellow Labrador female with sarcoptic mange. The vet found one female mite from three scrapings. Last Thursday she got 1.1 Ivermectin 1% shot she’ll get 3 more at weekly intervals. She is also taking 75 mg Hydroxyzine Pamoate 3 times a day plus 1000 mg Cephalexin 3 times a day. We bathe her weekly with an anti-itch shampoo. Is this the best method of treatment? Is there anything else I should be doing? She has several nasty looking hair loss patches and is itching a lot.
I don't have any personal experience with this - but do know that it takes a while to get over. She will look - well - mangy for a while.
