Hey everyone. Just adopted a 7mth male boxer the other day that is suffering from very severe demodex with secondary skin infection. The poor thing has blood coming out of his skin from mainly his muzzle but also from different places on his legs. He was extremely swollen all over where he's affected by the mange (muzzle, belly, and legs). Also, just discovered he has tapeworms the other day. Got him started on ivermectin, sulfur/benzoyl peroxide shampoo, benadryl, aspirin and broad-spectrum antibiotic for his demodex and just took his medicine yesterday for tapeworm. When I took him to my vet on Saturday, he really thought it was too late and fully expected him to be septic already. Luckily he wasn't. As soon as the results from the lab come back, we'll get him started on a better antibiotic. He's really the sweetest boy and hoping this mess will clear up soon. The swelling has gone down considerably, the bleeding has all but stopped (skin is still paper-thin), and his muzzle is getting softer. Even though he is getting better, we're still keeping our fingers crossed!
