Holistic Supplements For Puppy With Demodectic Mange (Demodex)

Q:  My puppy has demodectic mange.  What holistic supplements would be helpful for me to use along with the vet's treatment?

A:  Generally, when puppies have demodectic mange, they tend to have a weakened immune system and can have flareups for the rest of their life.  It is very important to give puppies with demodectic mange a high protein, grain-free diet.  Use fresh vegetables and plenty of omega oils to help their coat and skin.  Avoid grains and fillers.

Holistic supplements that will help boost your puppy's immune system and fight the demodectic mange include the following:

Amazing Omegas---delivers therapeutic levels of fish oil which will improve coat quality and reduce inflammation.
Colostrum for Pets + Power Probiotic---provides immune support and assists in the recovery of demodectic mange.   Especially helpful if your puppy has had worms or giardia.

Immunitone Plus--- 
Blend of essential nutrients for immune support including arabinogalactans, green tea, beta glucan and a variety of medicinal mushrooms
