Hi -

We just adopted a 2 year old Chocolate Lab from a rescue this weekend.

He just had his first vet visit last night and we were told he has sarcoptic scabies (mange). He was given an injection of Ivermectin to be followed with another one in 2 weeks. He was also prescribed Prednisone & an antibiotic.

Anyone familiar with this? What I really want to know is when should we start treating the house to avoid a reinfection? I washed his bedding & such last night in hot water but I'm guessing I need to keep doing that until he's of this. Any clue as to how old that will be?

Thanks for your help!
Tabitha
