My 16 wk old male great pyreneese puppy was dx with demodectic mange. He has one quarter size bald spot on the top of his head. The vet gave me a cream to put on it 2x a day. My question is should he be on an oral med? Just because its only in one spot now doesn't mean he doesn't have it all over his body inside him right? Thanks for any help.

My guess is that he gave you goodwin oil which is used to treat localized demodex mange. I would wait and see if this treatment is effective.
