go to http://www.botanicaldog.com and order the neem oil, and the flea therapy shampoo kit.. its all natural ingredients, and the neem oil is a natural insecticide that will kill the mange mites .. mange mites live under the skin, so the only way to see them is to do a skin scraping.. what kind of water medicine did the vet give you? did they give you ivermectin oral doses too?
