Check up at the vet's this morning with Dr. Maxmen.
Dumpling has gained 5 lbs and is now a hefty 30lbs.
No more scabs, he just kind of semi-bald and a bit dry/flaky.
I had noticed his lymph nodes are very swollen; Dr. says its from draining and the skin infections. So, he's still a pretty sick pup, although he doesn't show it at all.
He continues with the antibiotics to deal with the ongoing secondary skin infections, and slightly higher Ivormectin dose (since he has gained weight) to get rid of that pesky demodex mange.
