|"Sarge", frail and weakened by dog mange.|
The next morning what I saw was shocking. The condition of my dogs feet and legs looked noticeably better, as a lot of the crusting had come off and a lot of hair had seem to grow over night. Over the course of the next 2 or 3 days, light hair became visible on his sores. After some more research I learned that I was using too much oil and that I could mix it with a "carrier oil" to help carry the neem oil under the skin where the mites dwell.
I also learned that these mites burrow holes in the surface of the skin where they dwell. Every few days, the females come to the surface to lay eggs. The eggs then hatch and those new mites then began to dig into your poor dogs skin and recreates the cycle. Keep in mind that these mite ARE parasites and they are biting and sucking your dog's blood to survive!
