I made a paste with diatomotaceous earth (food grade, of course - very important, purchased at Tractor Supply) and generic A&D ointment from Walgreen's. I've been putting it on a quarter-sized bare spot on my dog (diagnosed by a vet as demodex) every day for a couple of weeks. The hair is starting to grow back. The vet wanted me to bring him in for weekly baths/dips at 50 bucks a pop. The DE and ointment cost a few bucks. I've also started dusting my dogs with DE for fleas and mixing in their food for internal parasites.
