Taste of the Wild dog food for Jack Russell
by: Gretta

Dogs that have localized demodex will definitely benefit from a good diet so I think Taste of the Wild will be good for your Jack since it is grain free. Adding fish oil to your Jack's diet would be good for the coat. And maybe some plain yogurt to keep up the immune system. Nustock is also good for hotspots. I would wait to see if the condition resolves before considering breeding. If it continues to spread, I don't think the dog should be breed. And of course before you do anything, talk to your vet first since he/she would know best if breeding would be appropriate.
