Hello everyone! I've tried some of remedies and suggestions listed above with some modest results but not a complete cure. Then ran into someone who suggested using Desitin (used for baby's diaper rash), it worked!!! My puppy chihuahua that was 80% bald and developed a stench-smell, grew most of her coat in three weeks, by the fifth week she was completely cured-and no smell! TRY IT!
Diaper Rash Ointment
We have a 12 year old chow/mix, 70 lbs. She was diagnosed with lymphoma and underwent chemo treatment for 7 weeks at an vet oncologist. Her cancer is in remission; however, chemo treatment not only kills the cancer cells, her white blood cells were also destroyed. What this means is her immune system is not working. As a result, she developed Demodecosis (Demodex, Mite) and she has an ulcerated wound on her small claws. She looked like a victim of the black plague. The area around her eyes, muzzle, and all four paws turned hairless and black in color. Her mange is almost gone because of antibiotics and Ivermectin. There are only a few spots left and I read about using Desitin, the diaper rash ointment. It works wonders and kills the mites. In a couple of days, those spots have her fur growing back. Just another over the counter remedy. She is back to normal and no more Ivermectin.
