Therapeutic management of demodicosis in a dog

Shinu Balima N
A 9 months old non-descript female dog was presented with alopecia of the face with an unpleasant odour. The owner informed that the lesion has started as a small allergic patch and has spread to the entire face and neck within a span of two weeks with severe self mutilation. Physical examination of the dog showed skin erosions with crusting, erythema and few pustular lesions. Microscopical examination of the skin scrapping showed the presence of skin mite, Demodex canis organism which was confirmative of generalised demodicosis. A multimodal approach of treatment was followed and the dog recovered uneventfully.
