Hello,

I got my first boxer about 4 months ago.
Boris is a beautiful baby boy almost 5 months, 33lbs and 20 inches withers.

He recently got diagnosted with demodectic mange. I've been reading on it and there seems to be a lot of controversy about it. I'd like to know more about.

Despite it he has a lot of energy and is growing beautifully.

Great infos in here! Thank you.

Pretty boy. I have no experience with mange but understand it occurs from mites along with a compromised immune system. You will want to build his immune system. I'm sure others on here can further advise you. In fact I just put it in the search bar and there is lots of info on it.

Hi Linda, thank you for the reply.

He's on meds for two weeks now and there seems to be some progress! I'll get him back to the vet on the 8th to check.

He's been such a good boy that we have a medication moment on the day, already a rithual and I think he likes it! He see the meds as treats! lol

I'm still having some potty issues but I'm moving in a week so I'm cutting him some slack and returning the training in the new house.
