The smell may indicate a secondary bacterial infection.
As a herding dog they may not be able to treat the mange with Ivermectin. Has she been prescribed and other medication? Goodwinol or antibacterial ointments?
Aside from that, a healthy diet to get her immune system working at peak effeciency so the mites will stay under control.
