Thanks for the tip, Walderez! My boxer was improving slowly with the regular borax+peroxide treatment, but it was turning out to be a long-suffering process. Mite Avenge+quercatin worked much much faster, and the level of info on their site is incredible. You def get what you pay for

THE BEST TREATMENT FOR MANGE OR ANY MITE IS DIATAMACEOUS EARTH. Cheap, non toxic, and hands down the best, fastest, cheapest way to relieve your cat or dog. Just put some DE powder in an old sock and tie the open end in a knot. Then powder puff your animal all over really well with DE. Almost instant relief. Make sure to wash any bedding and put a little powder around there as well. Diatomaceous Earth is a powder made from microscopic shells. It kills mites dead - all kinds. It will not harm your pet or you. Try not to breath the powder just like you wouldn't breath any other powder. Farmers have used this forever both topically and in feed for their livestock to kill worms internally and to kill mites externally. For a few bucks you can get it at the feedstore. Try it - you'll like it - and your animal will love you for it.

PS. DIATOMACEOUS EARTH will also kill fleas. That means no more toxic medicine, flea collars, dips, etc.

Do I get food grade or insecticide grade

Food grade, that way it can't hurt your animal. Don't poof it all over the dog, as the other person suggested; inhaling it CAN be harmful! You can mix it with water and spray it on, as an alternative, or take pinches of it and rub it in, gently. Sadly, it will not control a flea infestation. I tried it for a long time, since one of my dogs had a life-threatening reaction to Advantage and had to spend a weekend in the hospital. I was combing off 40 fleas per day of each dog! (I was also putting the DE on the floors, bedding, grass, vacuuming, etc. Finally, I got organic neem oil (from an online pet supply place) and mixed a few drops into a bottle of stay-on condition, per instructions. At first, I'd find fleas only on the sections I hadn't done, until I did every part of the dog every few days. The fleas immediately began to disappear and never returned.

Thanks for the endorsement Margaret! We are so happy Mite Avenge helped improve your dog's quality of life. You found us quite early when we started selling online online & I'm a bit late finding your comment. Since your dog recovered, we've gone on to change the lives of thousands of other dogs around the world.

I'm not trying to plug our company and products ((although they're awesome) but in the best interest of dogs everywhere, I'd like to speak to the comments about diatomaceous earth. DE is great stuff. And yes, always use food grade. It kills almost all insects and arachnids that crawl through it but not so much for mange mites. Why? Because they live their entire lifecycle BENEATH the skin and they don't come in contact with it.

It takes between 25 minutes to an hour to burrow into the skin. If the mite does not come in contact with DE before making its way into the flesh there is now way that DE can get to them. Females are fertile for life and never come out of the skin again.Instead, she gnaws a maze of tunnels and within hours begins dropping eggs She'll drop as many as 40 eggs before she dies and only the males will ever surface. Even if the dog is painted in DE by then its too late. There are enough males in the tunnels to fertilize the females who will then dump many more eggs that will escape the DE. (Fun fact: A female mates once and remains fertile for life).

Demodex mites live deep in the follicles & pores and never ever come out. (Fun fact #2: They hate light & air) They never have the chance to come in contact with DE and even if they did, the mange couldn't be controlled because the root cause hasn't been fixed. Cheyletiella mites are much higher in the skin but it's difficult to work DE deep enough into the keratin layer to kill them. And if the dog's environment hasn't been decontaminated, the ones in the environment will re-infest the dog at some point in the 10-20 days before they self-exterminate.Thanks for the endorsement Margaret!

(Fun fact #3: Cheyletiella are rampant & contagious to people. Vets now see more Cheyletiella cases than flea cases.)

So to set the record straight, diatomaceous earth may kill the mites the come in contact with it. But it won't cure mange because the majority of mites will never touch it.
