Possible mange on my dogHi, I wonder if anyone can help my 2 year old female dog who has possible mange.
It seems to start with very small pimple like spots with a light brown tip (possible tiny scab on tip). These then either disappear or enlarge into thick dark scabs (possibly from a bit of help from my girl, not sure). She does scratch a bit, although not excessively so I'm guessing most are not itchy. If she does scratch, she makes a mess and creates a big wound.
They're concentrated mainly on one ear, with a few on her face and chest.
For a little bit of history, 5-6 months ago I took in a street pup. She started itching badly, vets here (Bulgaria, E. Europe) wouldn't do a skin scrape as deemed 'not necessary', insisted it was flea allergy without evidence of fleas and then insisted it was grass allergy. Then my other two adults started itching and all three dogs got thick scabs mainly on their elbows - vets still refused to believe mange, saying these were pressure point elbow calluses. So I 'went it alone' and treated all of them with Arsenicum Alb & Sulphur 30C from the Derbyshire Fox Society in UK.
It went after a month of treatment. Now, just my 2 year old female seems to have it again yet it's not on the elbows at all - it's concentrated totally differently.
Here I only seem to be able to get the pills not tinctures and some of the higher dosages might be difficult. Is there anything that anyone can recommend for my girl please?
Many thanks in advance
