Going for another skin scraping today for demodex.  The past 3 scrapings have all had dead mites, but any evidence of mites is a positive test.  If this one comes back positive, I believe we're going to get some mitaban as well.  We're all just getting worried this might be a chronic thing for Cooper.  Right when he was starting to get better, he did hit puberty so that may have caused a flare-up.  Hopefully, the neutering will normalize his hormones and help the medicine kick-in.

it was clean!!!  I've got to keep him on the ivermectin for a couple months and this could very well be a chronic thing. Just glad to finally have a negative scraping.
