    My 6 month old Sheltie was dignosed with Demadectic mange about a month ago. There was a spot on her head that we have been treating every day with Goodwinole onitment and the hair has now grown back. Our vet said to keep treating the spot for a long time to come. Another spot was seen on her front leg at about the time th e first was discovered. When I mentioned this to the vet over the phone he said it can’t be the mange and don’t treat it. Now a month later he saw the now larger spot when my girl was being spayed and said we should treat it. He also doesn’t want us to take her out in public because he is afraid she will catch some other disease. Your comments please.

    Demodex is often associated with an immune dysfunction. It is *typically* not contagious from dog to dog. In my opinion the most important thing in this young dog is proper socialization (achieved by getting her out as much as possible).

    Regarding immune function, I strongly advise addressing this issue NOW rather than waiting until other problems arise. You can best do this by consulting with an experienced holistic veterinarian and by starting to treat the internal imbalance homeopathically.

I'm sending my prayers and best wishes to everyone throughout the world that has been affected by this historic pandemic. My hope is for a better balance of the world and greater empowerment for all as soon as possible. Here are 4 actions that can be used today to improve immune resistance to any virus or bacteria:

1. Go on a "sniff walk” with your pet and breathe fresh air deeply for at least 30 minutes/day.

2. Eat darkly colored fresh vegetables and fruit such as wild blueberries and kale.

3. Do at least 50 HA! breaths just say ha loudly) daily. These forceful expulsions of air help maintain good lung function and can help you detect respiratory problems early. Laughter, coughing and Kapalabhati breathing (from yoga) are three other easy ways to do this.

4. Experience positive emotions, like the sense of awe, when we witness the renewal of nature. Stay safe, Vital and healthy”
