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.

Hello! you mention earlier in the post you put in 3 droppers full of oil of oregano into the spray bottle, then underneath you say 1/3 each of oil, Listerine and water. Are those all equal parts? It doesn't seem like enough to spray a dog.
Thanks for your help!


My dog had the mange, I tried the listerine, baby oil, and water solution for 3 days and all it did was make him more miserable and stunk out my house. Then I tried medicated dandruff shampoo. ' no name brand $3.50 ' awesome! We all slept better that night. Then the next day he slept all day. So I shampooed him with the medicated dandruff shampoo every other day, lathered and scrubbed rough and let it sit on him for 5 minutes and rinsed well. For 1 week ..IT WORKED !!! Now the poor thing gets a bath with medicated dandruff shampoo once a week. Never want to go thru that again.


at goldenrule- no offense but garlic is toxic to dogs, especially is high doses. it is however an old holistic treatment that has proven its value. you are 'treating' your dog daily with it as part if the diet for preventive care. not good. in treating a healthy animal, the only thingyou gain is a false peace of mind. you are building up dangerous levels that will lead to anemia liver and kidney problems. if it is'nt broke, don't fix it.


Thank you for your time for posting this! Don't know how much I am greatful for this info but it really did work on my dog that was starting to develop a really bad skin irritation dog mange I guess.

oil of oranano which was like under $20 from vitamin shoppe


and water

After 1 week I could see results


Something else that helps soothe the ears (undersides of flaps down to the beginning of the ear canal) Hiney Helper soothing Diaper Rash Cream by BabyGanics found at Walgreens. My dog shook her head so often she now has hearing problems. I tried EVERYTHING. One application of the cream and INSTANT relief and a tail wag. She also looked at me like I was magic.
