love my great dane :)

Its been a very long a trying worrysome 2 weeks. 2 weeks ago my great dane started to lose clumps of hair. All down her back big spots were missing and it seemed to just be getting worse. I found a remedy on here that I went and tried that very night.
1/3 baby oil
1/3 listerien (original)
1/3 luke warm water.
Shook it up well and sprayed her down head to toe. Including all down her tail and her underside. It seemed to slow it right down and kept it from getting any worse. After many days of spraying her down I was tired of not seeing any improvment as good as it was that it was stopped from becoming worse I wanted her better. I found another reciepe saying to put mayo on her spots let it sit for at least a half hour then wash off and dab apple cider vinegar on the bald spots. With in 24hrs it had exploded on her and she was covered even more with the bald spots. I finally decided to talk with a naturalist for people what they would give someone with scabbies. The answer was surprising. He told me that he uses oil of oregano. This product can cure almost any ailment for people. It covers such a broad spectrum of issues that no matter what the cause was this would help. I decided to attempt this. With a dropper I applied a decent amount on every single bald spot and bump showing. I left it on and because of the horrible taste she didn't try to lick it off either. At the same time we switched her food and cleaned the house top to bottom. Including the carpet she sleeps on. We vacuumed the carpet she's on the most and then sprayed it with the misture of baby oil listerien and water. The next morning it showed signs of no extra patches. I decided that instead of spryaing her with the baby oil/listerien/water mixture to kick it up a notch. I started to put 3 droppers full of oil of oreangano in a spray bottle with listerien and water. With in 24 hrs now the patches have already becoming less noticable by far. The bumps on her legs were gone and the red on her stomach was now pink. Were still continuing with this formula. Its been 48 hrs and there is a big change. Now she never lost hair on her face or on her legs like the say is the most common signs. She never lost her appatite and never really scratched at it but she had the crust around the bald patches and the skin was looking like leather this spray has taken all the crust away turned the skin back to a soft feeling and I'm starting to see a reduced amount of patches on her. I spary the carpet she sleeps on 2x a day morning and night and it seems to keep the mites off her.
I will post in a few days to let you all know how its going but for know this is what we've done:
-Changed brands of food to a brand from costco (we have 3 large dogs that eat way to much for the real expensive stuff) she is currently now eating one called natures food (I believe that's the name) it has salmon as a the first ingrediant

2. Spray them down 2x a day
- 1/3 oil of oregano
- 1/3 original listerine
- 1/3 luke warm water
Shake really well before spraying and couple times while spraying.

3. Spray there bed area down with same mixture

4. Vacumme and was floors regularly.

5. Wash them down 1x a week
Do not dry completly just blot them down. Then spray again right after washing to make sure nothing has time to dig back in.

6. Every feeding put 1 tblspn of BALSAMIC vinegar over food (they love it)

7. Wrap a clove of garlic in a piece of lunch meet 1x a week and give it to them. (Prevents heart worm and other dieseases)

8. If you have other dogs make sure you feed them with the BALSAMIC vinegar 1x a day over there food and spray there bed down every other day to prevent any transfer of the mites. As well wash and spray down them every week. This makes sure that if they have spread to your other pets that they don't have a chance to dig in at all. This has kept all my other dogs clean and no problems. I don't have quarinten any of them either. If you puppies around I would keep them at a far distance just because there immune system is not as strong yet.

I really hope this helps everyone who wants help and not just drugs for them. There is natural alternatives out there for everything it just requires some searching and a lot understanding of the type of problem your dealing with.

I'm trying this treatment for my black lab at this momment, However, I have heard that garlic is TOXIC for dogs-So you should definitely double check that suggestion!


Garlic IS toxic to dogs! I ama vet tech! Don't feed you dog garlic!


IM trying this also, my dad as been to the vet and reflex, have a shot also on predisone, did a tea bag treatment and he is still itching like crazy. I don't know what to do next.


Im trying this also, my dog has been to the vet and on keflex, have a shot also on predisone, did a tea bag treatment and he is still itching like crazy. I don't know what to do next.


Im gonna use it one my dog today,thank for the info


I tried this the other day and it worked. First I did was the spray thingy. I also tried boiling oregano leaves including its stem and wait until the heat has subside. I used it to rinse my dog after I bathe him.

Golden Rule

I too give my dog Daisy 3 cloves of Garlic a day. I think veterinarians need to reexamine their claims as to the dangers of Garlic because they are giving us false information. Garlic is used world wide as a remedy for all illinesses for dogs, from stomach problems to fleas, mange and the like. I do believe there is a ploy by this industry to make Garlic a taboo for dogs to encourage us to use their remedies at an astronomical cost to the dog owner. My dog Daisy was a stray dog with many problems, including skin infestation. Veterinarian shampoos, lotions and treatments did not work for her. So after spending about $600 in Vet visits, lotions and shampoos. I decided to try a treatment that included Garlic.

I started Daisy with one clove of Garlic everyday. I minced the garlic and mixed it into her Science Diet soft food. Daisy showed an immediate improvement. Her hair started to grow thick and full quickly. She didn't smell as bad and her bloated stomach started to go down. She was more playful and not as itchy.

Week two I started her on her second garlic daily. Mincing it into squashed bananas or hidden in a piece of chicken or whatever. I saw continued improvement in the quality of her skin, hair, itch control, bloting and stomach problems. She is more energetic and happier. Cute little thing. (Forgot to mention, Daisy is also blind and deaf due to her previous owners neglect.)

On week three, I started her on her 3rd Garlic Daily. Daisy had been on Garlic for about 2 months and doing great when I decided that maybe it was time to get her off of it. Wrong move she gradually started to lose her energy again. Her stomach started to rebloat. Hair started to fall out, and the smell was back. Well Daisy is back on Garlic again and back to her happy little self .

POINT: If it was true that Garlic is dangerous or deadly. Daisy would have been dead a long time ago. Onions are deadly, not Garlic. I challenge any Veterinarian to prove me wrong. Daisy is not the only dog on Garlic out there. Log on to Earth Clinic.


Home Remedies for Treating Cat & Dog Mange

It’s important to know that most healthy dogs already have a small community of Demodex mites residing in their coat. However, if the mite population gets out of control, this is when the real trouble begins. In some cases, an allergic reaction can be found in only one part of the body, or the response gradually spreads across the rest of his or her coat. To prevent the spread of mange or treat a mangy pet, consider the following home remedies for dog and cat mange:

a) Hydrogen Peroxide and Borax:

One of the best home remedies for treating mange in dogs is to create a 1% hydrogen peroxide solution with water and Borax. Make sure that the mixture thoroughly dissolves. Once a week, wash your dog in a solution comprised of 1 to 2 tablespoons of borax for every 500 cc of 1% hydrogen peroxide. Refrain from wiping the dog dry. Simply allow the treatment to take effect. Do not exceed a treatment period of two months.

b) Brush Out the Fur:

Treat a mangy coat by brushing out the fur on a regular basis, which helps remove scaly skin and scabs.

c) Yogurt:

Choose a plain yogurt that contains acidophilus to heal the inside of ears that has been plagued with mange. Two tablespoons should do the trick.

d) Apple Cider Vinegar:

Add one tablespoon of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar to your pet’s meal to treat mange symptoms.

e) Cooking Oil:

Apply a couple drops of cooking oil directly to mangy skin patches to combat the irritation caused by mites. Cooking oil can also soften the waxy deposits that appear on the surface of your dog’s skin, which have been left behind by mites. The oil will also kill mites at the same time.

f) Lemon:

Slice one lemon with the peel still left on. Boil water in the same manner as you would if you were preparing a cup of tea. Drop the lemon slices into the water and allow to steep overnight. In the morning, apply the mixture to your pet’s coat using a sponge.

g) Soapy Water:

Apply a couple of drops of warm water with soap to eliminate mites found on the skin of your dog. This approach can also help stop the spread of mange to other body parts.

h) Routine Bathing:

Heal scaly skin and scabs by giving your pet a regular bath.

i) Treat Bedding:

If your pet is under attack by mange mites, it is important to thoroughly wash his or her bedding, and treat other places where they sleep.

j) Honey:

Apply local (and not store-brand) honey to reddened skin.


My dog had mange and i was successful in clearing it up but it took time a patience. I outlined our story on my blog, I hope this helps


For the garlic issue,if you ever have to get deworming medication for your dog,smell it,it has garlic in it.
