My best friend

my dog had mange for a very very long time . I took her to the vet so so many time but she never got better . she kept on losing her hair . then I changed vets , I asked the new vet what has she got ( because the other vet I was taking her to would never tell me what her problem was they would just keeping giving her medication. which never worked)(the new vets treatment also did not work )so now that I knew what her problem was I started searching the internet for an answer to her problem and come across this site . so I tried everything for a while but nothing helped until I washed her with Dettol diluted in water. boy what a relief . from no hair on her body to full hair in a week . what I did was take a 20 lt buck fulled it up with luk-warm water and pord a 500ml of Dettol in the water then placed her in the bucket making sure her whole body way totally submerged in the water accept for her head of cause. kept washing her body for a while (10min.)I washed her every seconay for a week . she can thank my son she is alive because I could not take it no more for 3 years it was back and forth from the vet . her skin was so bad I asked my son I think I have to put her down as the vet is not helping and the one vet did say once ' if she does not get better maybe I should put her down as she was suffering to much. I also lost my job and could not afford another vet visit. cutting a long story short . my son opted to give up playing his internet game and for me to take the money I would give him to go on the net and buy the Dettol . thanks god did . I cant believe it is the same dog, ( sausage dog )thanks every one for the help .

My dog had scabs and was losing all her hair, I had her on pills from the vet and tried everything the vet gave me, but she continued to scratch herself continuously. I finally decided to research home remedies on the internet and came across several about the use of Dettol, so I figure I would give it a try. I also used the borax and peroxide treatment. I gave her a Dettol bath and during the time between baths I used the borax spray solution. It worked amazing. She has stop scratching and has grown all her hair back beautifully.


Can someone please tell me something that works!!! I need help my dog has this... Pleass!!!


My boxer dog had mange.she had lost hair2.In Some places she had bleeding patch on her skin.

Every night before her bed time i applied cap ful of dettol on her skin using my bare hands. I used cotton to apply dettol on her wounds. In three days her wounds dried up and now i am seeing improvement in hair growth as well.i used green colored dettol.

The active ingredient of Dettol is 4-Chloro-3,5-dimethylphenol. Also known as para-chloro-meta-xylenol.


Wish me luck I’ve been going thru the same thing with my staffy vets medication her scratch and her being sad breaks my heart so fingers x as I’m at my wits end


I swear by Dettol and have always used like shampoo to bathe my dogs and it’s fab...

No fleas or mites etc survive and it soothes the skin and heals...

Love your dog's ????

Vets will tell you anything is toxic so you keep going back. I've used diluted dettol for years and it's worked every time.

Make sure you only used half a cap per 20 litres of water as it can burn your dog's skin if they have an adverse reaction. Start off with really weak solution then gradually build up the strength of the dettol (never go above half a cap to 20 litres)

If your dog has an adverse reaction apply sudacream or oderless skin cream to aid healing.
