dennis malec Posted August 3, 2007 Report Share Posted August 3, 2007 my dog max is an 11 month old border collie who i thought was doing wonderfully, we go to the dogpark daily, he is in great shape lean and full of energy. max has been on chicken soup for puppy lovers, adding yougurt and cottage cheese for interest. not a lot of treats usually used in training, she is enrolled in beginners agility at a local kennel. last week i noticed a red spot near his eye which i treated with neosporin after calling my vet. the spot became larger and ouzing so i took him to the vet and was diaganosed with demodectic mange. i read on the internet that dogs under a year old probably have inherited this from their parents. i understand that the mange is not the problem it can be corrected with medicinal dips which i am doing. the first one was yesterday and max who is usually pulling at me to go to the dog park is fast asleep at my feet. i am told that the real problem is max's immune system. has anyone out there ever suffered through this with their dog and what was the outcome.
