Hello, I looked over the question you sent.
This is a case that may require an appointment with a veterinarian.
This potent remedy, which works wonders for Sarcoptic Mange, helps pets recover from serious diseases brought on by parasites and non-specific dermatitis. The concentrated sulfurated lime solution can be used as a dip or rinse when suitably diluted with water.
Pour the diluted dip over the animal with caution, making sure to cover all afflicted regions. Apply again every 5-7 days, or as your veterinarian instructs.
Sarcoptic mange is treated with NexGard or NexGard SPECTRA twice monthly in a row. The NexGard or NexGard SPECTRA demodex medication should be continued monthly until your veterinarian verifies that there are no mites on two consecutive months' worth of skin scrapings.
Please do not hesitate to ask any further questions you may have. Thank you.
