Question by Pup Luvr: Demodectic Mange & Rubbing with Olive Oil??
I am fostering a dog – he’s been through a lot shelter/then kennel etc…- and he recently started losing his hair – I took him to the vet (strangely it was to the dismay of the rescue agency who I’ve come to find out is only is interested in the adoption fee, not the welfare of her dogs but that’s another story) sooo… the ‘rescue agency lady’ shows up at my house after I’ve spent the money for the vet and she says, “I shouldn’t have spent the money – he can just be rubbed with Olive Oil” – he is being treated with Ivomec, antibiotics, & KetoChlor Shampoo (he also had a secondary bacterial and yeast infection in his skin…) I looked online – wasn’t able to find a Olive Oil treatment…oil in their food yes…
Has anyone heard of this or is she just upset that she’s going to have to reimburse my vet bills?
I have sent the bills along with a letter from my vet….(she actually wanted to adopt the dog out with NO vet treatment! ) – my vet’s letter stated he needed to stay in a stable home environment!

you can not treat it with olive oil, you did the right thing!! Why don’t you adopt this baby instead of just foster?? Just thought i would ask
