Dear Melissa,

This is what we usually advise for mange. I like to use both the shampoo and DERMA-IONX to give relief. I would bathe with DEFENDEX shampoo once weekly for 4-6 weeks or a couple of weeks past having a negative skin scraping. However, if you cannot do it safely for your cat and yourself do not try it or have a professional do it.

I would also use DERMA-IONX to heal and soothe the skin as well as rebuilding the immune system. Giving probiotics and Omega 3,6,9 will help in that goal. DERMA-IONX also helps the body to better utilize the supplements for faster results. I would start with 10 drops of DERMA-IONX twice daily on the food. I would also recommend a fish or turkey based food (not chicken or lamb) since these are considered to be cooling in Chinese food therapy. It is also good to feed grain free.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Best wishes,

Dr. Char
