The meds seem to be helping, and our older dog is now licking his wounds for him, and the puppy welcomes it. The sores are closing and not looking so gruesome.

I did take him to the vet but there wasn't a lot of clear answers, as she wasn't able to see anything on the skin scrapings. I was just wondering if people had any experience with this, I have never had a dog with mange.

There is a shampoo that your vet needs to give you to use to help get things under control. If that isn't enough then they have a regiment of giving a "little" amount of ivermectin everyday for a month. Your vet should know all about this. Demodex is very common in puppies.

My pup's fur came back just fine and now has a lovely coat.

My puppy has been diagnosed with mange, after I noticed he had thinning hair around his eye, scabs on his head and chin, and then the eye area looked raw. It is around his mouth too, and random small spots on his face. emoticon He is on Simparica, Keflex and Benadryl. Does anyone have experience with this, and how long it took to clear or if it came back? (PS, the vet thinks it is the demodedic mange, as he is not itching visibly. Nothing was found on the skin surface to type).
