Treatment for Lice infection in dogs?

My relatives have a Great Dane at their farm house near Alibaug. She has a terrible infestation of Lice. The place is pretty remote so decent vets don't travel there and the dog is very large and so she can't be brought to Mumbai in a car. Can someone please suggest a medication/Shampoo/Lotion which can be applied?

Please try RIDD amitraz solution. Dilute 2 ml in 1 ltr water and apply it weekly once. This shld help reduce lice and other ecto parasites..

The caution for RIDD bath is it should not be used regularly. Also it is sprayed from a bottle. dont get a bath or application. Do not allow the dog lick it. After being dry the normal bath should given after 3-4 days.

Have you tried Protektor pipettes. Quite effective. Don't ignore fleas and ticks as they can cause serious illness in the dog. You could also have a phone consultation with a vet in Mumbai on what flea protection to use.

Thank you everyone for your replies! The RIDD solution worked rather well on its first application. Will continue with that treatment.
