Hi, I have a 12 week old cockapoo which has been with me for 4 weeks. I have noticed that he is always scratching himself so when he had his 12 week jabs I asked the vet to have a look at him as he has a red patch on his back just above his tail. It turns out that he has mites that are causing him to scratch and the vet advised me to give him another dose of Frontline. Should the Frontline work straight away or does it take time to wrok as there has been no change in his scratching? As we haven't been able to take him out due to his age and he hasn't been in contact with any other dogs could he have had the mites when we collected him from the breeders? I've read on the internet that they can be fatal so am getting a little worried.

Frontline is a good treatment - one of the better ones. I would imagine it won't take any more than a day or two to kill the mites, but might take longer for the red area to clear up. I don't really know a lot about mites either, except ear mites, which clear up in a couple of days after treatment. Poor wee Charley - hope he is fine soon.
