PhytoVet CK shampoo/mousse, how long before I see results?

We took on a foster who came to us with a severe yeast infection in both ears and on her belly. She also has a demodex flare up on her hocks due to a past flea issue which caused some hair loss. Our vet treated her ears with BNT ointment (twice), has put her on monthly flea medication (nexgard) and recommended PhytoVet CK baths 3x’s a week. We’ve bathed her every 3 days for the last week and a half, but we just had her spayed so we are now using the mousse as we can’t bathe her for 2 weeks. She is also on cephalexin for 10 days. The itching was noticeably better after one bath. By the 3rd bath that week she stopped scratching all together. Most of the redness is gone. She is still missing some hair on her hocks, just wondering how long before I see results with hair regrowth? Also, have others had satisfactory results with PhytoVet CK products? Prior to us taking her she was fed Ol’ Roy dog food. We have her on Taste if the Wild now. Any advice or knowledge would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

It typically takes 4-6 weeks for skin conditions to fully clear up. It's also usually recommend to continue with the bathing regime for an additional 2 weeks after symptoms resolve the ensure that everything is truly gone and hopefully prevent a reoccurrence. You should also wash all of your pets bedding weekly until everything is resolved. For the hair regrowth it really depends on the individual, keeping them on a healthy diet will boost their immune system and aid in hair growth. But keep in mind some dogs can become so severely affected by skin disease that the hair follicles are forever damaged and the hair doesn't grow back the same if it ever grows back at all.
