In brief: Elimite (permethrin)
The usual treatment is applying a prescription lotion called Elimite (permethrin) which is available as a generic.
I am not aware of an over the counter product for canine mites.Canine mites may require a second application or resistant cases an oral agent Ivermectin can be used.
