Canine demodicosis was treated with Ivermectin (Ivomec®) given orally at a dosage of 0.6 mg/kg to seven dogs. Three of the dogs were from a city pound, the others were privately owned. Six dogs had generalized lesions and one had localized ones. A complete blood count and their biochemical profiles were monitored each month. After treatment, the dogs recovered and had no demodectic mange in the multiple skin scrapings. The duration of treatment was 5-9 weeks (mean= 6.7 weeks). No adverse drug effects were seen during treatment and all blood values remained within the normal range.
