Two dogs showing signs of demodicosis were diagnosed and treated. Physical and skin scrapping examination revealed generalised demodicosis in all cases. Clinical examination revealed alopecia, crusting of skin and pustules in both the cases. Both the cases were managed successfully with oral administration of Ivermectin at weekly interval, Benzyl peroxide shampoo once in a week, Amitraz dip once in a week and oral administration of antibiotic Cefalixen for twenty one days. Local application of Betadine and Wokazole was also given 2-3 times for 10 days. Both the cases recovered after almost 2 months of treatment.
