If your Dog has symptoms of mange or other skin condition use: 1% Hydrogen Peroxide mixed in water then add Borax laundry soap. Wash your dog with this every week for 2 months or until skin is clear. ALSO: DON'T WASH THIS OFF OF THE DOG, LET IT STAY ON!

Our vet said to wash our dog in antibacterial soap them in a dip called
mitaban that is $75 per tiny bottle diluted in 2 gallons of water. It does 1 dip, so he said save as much as possible from first dip in 1 gallon bottle and use again in 2 weeks. Treat for 6 weeks. He also gave us dulluted ivomec to give 4cc orally for 10 days. We have to put iodine on each bald spot to heal quicker. The sarcoptic mange is very hard to clear up so you have to be persistant in the care of your animal.


I also need to know how much of each product. I would like to try.


try it on humans first


I have a yellow lab and used this for his hereditary mange this past summer (2005) I mixed the entire bottle of hydrogen peroxide with 5 gal of water. Then I added about 1/2 box of the borax and stirred until dissolved. I used a sponge to soak down my dogs skin thoroughly for as long as he would stand and allow me to do this. Then I poured the remaining mixture from the bucket on his back before he took off to roll in the grass. I did not rinse it off at all. In a matter of days his hair was growing back and it's been several months now and his hair is still beautiful. No sign of the mange left at all. Susan in Virginia


Hi. Just stumbled onto this site and hope this question is appropriate. If this isn't the place to ask it, could someone direct me to a suitable one? I live in China at the moment and told friends I was looking for a kitten, preferably not one found in the street. But someone brought a kitten found in the street and it would have been impolite to refuse it, so I'm stuck. It seems to have some skin disease, which doesn't seem too widespread. It doesn't seem to itch, but there are a few rather large areas where the skin is black and slightly raised and showing through as there seems to be some hairloss in these areas. She also has a rather large thickening of the skin on her nose. I've bathed her twice and small clumps of hair do seem to fall out. She has a very few black spots in her ear, but they are not raised and they are not earmites as far as I can see.

I don't have borox powder here, though I'll look in the pharmacy to see if they have h. peroxide. Will also try to locate a vet, but that may take some time. In the meantime, I'd like to try some home remedy. I did find some baking soda...

Is this for demodectic mange? I've been treating my puppy for 2 months with the vet and no improvement. What size bottle of peroxide? I would be so happy if I could cure my shepherd. She's a wonderful companion. Thanks for any help you can give me.


I used the mange cure.It does work!You put one cup of peroxide with six gallons of water and mix in the Borax until it will no longer dissolve.It took about half a box for me.I just mixed it all in the tub and put my dog in it.I just kept pooring it over him every where and if the animal has mange on the face,just rub the mix on with your hand.Don't get it in their eyes!Do not rinse it off.Give them a bath before you do the borax mixture.This does really work!!!


Does anyone know how many times perhaps the treatment have to be applied. I have a Boxer puppy (about 16 mos) and he has bald spots on his back at times some are bleeding, I plan to try the treatment but am wondering how often I should repeat it?

Can you still use this method if your dogs has mange by their eye? What do we do then?


This comment is for Phoenix 08. If the dog has mange near an eye, you could hold the eye open and put a cap full of cooking/vegetable oil in the eye for protection. Then soak a sponge in the treatment mixture and hold it to the affected area near the eye.
