To: RENEE BUB With the I HAVE AN AKC REGISTERED PEKINGUNESE. My neighbor had a dog with very bad bloody paws, and the Vet 1st suggested cleaning the paws and using an antibotic ointment and wrapping the feet (best ointment in over the counter called Neosporin)my sister also uses Mineral oil weekly as a preventative. But this did not help too much for them, because the dog chewed off the wraps. The local Vet told them to buy I believe an Ivermectin Shot (must make sure you dog doesn't have heart worm 1st I believe) and it cleared up immediately..should also work for mange too. But the paws immediately got better, they almost put the dog down. The shot was sold to them cheaper at the Pharmacy for under $2.00 I believe. Ask your Vet. Hope this helps.

Hi I was the one that just commented on your dogs bloody paws and mange. I believe the Vet in our town called this Ivomec Plus for cattle ....you need to ask your Vet about this product..could also be called Ivermectin..I am reading both in other home remedies too for dogs. Your dog must not have heart worm to do this..and I believe Collie or Shepard type dogs can have problems from Ivermectin your Vet will know..but I heard this is VERY effective for mange and our Vet used it for these bloody paws that cleared up instantly. But also continue using Mineral oil once the infection is gone..Hope this helps. If you google this info. on Ivomec for mange and dogs info. might come up for you too.

I had a pit bull with mange. I had him for four years. He passed away three days ago. He too was ooosing and itching and bleeding and had a very awful smell. we spent several thousand dollars on him at the vet and he had little to no improvement. I have two other dogs who are showing signs of mage so i am going to try this peroxide thing. try asking your vet for promeris that was the best thing that helped him it is cost about 58 dollars a month to buy need to be put on every two weeks

I just rescued 2 5 week old puppies from the shelter with what looks like really bad mange. I am doing the borax and peroxide dip on them, but first I wash them with dandruff shampoo, the Selsen Blue (spell??) type. I have had luck with this, but the mange wasn't as bad. I have read that Mayo applied and left as long as possible will help to deprive the mites of air so they come to the surface and you wash them off when you wash off the mayo. Motor oil doesn't work and it can be toxic to your dog. go for the mayo. It should cool and sooth the skin as well.

This is not a home remedy but it is natural and after trying many things it works! It's called 'Everyday Solutions RX
mange mudd cream w/neem.' worth every penny.

I am a veterinarian and it sounds like many people confuse sarcoptic mange (scabies) with demodex. They are completely different. See the site www.veterinarypartner.com for more info. Important to note, benzoyl peroxide helps flush demodex from the hair follicle but does not KILL the mites. It does not treat sarcoptes. The use of other products (Ajax, motor oil, etc) is NOT recommended. I have treated many pets for chemical burns from various home remedies. If you use Ivermectin, it has to be used daily for demodex for 3-4 months, but only twice (2 dose, 2 weeks apart) for sarcoptes. Promeris is RX only but is about $15/month and 96\\% effective when used monthly. A large percentage of demodex cases will cure naturally (w/ no treatment), so when people tell you their crazy home mixture worked, it was a coincidence. If your pet has skin w/ odor or is uncomfortable, do not watch them get worse while you wait to see if these mixtures work. See your vet rather than using these inaccurate sites!

My husband always used Happy Jack Mange medicine on his hunting dogs and it worked.

My little mini Dauchshund mix has a strip about 4 ins. long just above his tail. I think it d. mange, not sarcoptic.
I put some plain old vaseline on him for a couple of days to see if it would work. His hair started coming back in only 3 days.
I tried it because my dad put axle grease, not oil, on his dogs and vaseline would act the same without the mess.

To DVM, Class of 2005:

Thank you for adding your opinion. This evening, a small crusty spot on my mini-dach's ear. I was considering trying one of these home remedies until I read your comment. Thank you for speaking up. You quite possibly saved my Lil' Beau from serious damage which his seriously foolish Mommy (me) may have caused him. Your comment here was the only warning against these remedies I have come across online all night. Now, I know my little fella will be in for a trip to the vet Monday morning, and that the medication shouldn't be unreasonably expensive. I did clean the spot with a little hydrogen peroxide 3% and put on a bandage with some triple antibiotic ointment. That won't hurt him will it?

Re the itchy feet, I have a poodle cross who, every so often, will start chewing her pads/toes and she becomes quite obsessive about it. Dr Harry (from TV show Better Homes & Gardens in Australia) had a segment on the show about this problem and recommended dipping the dog's paws into undiluted methylated spirits. I keep a small jar of it handy and when I notice her chewing her paws, I get the 'metho' and dunk each paw in it, squeeze out the excess and then she goes crazy running around because of the strong smell. I know it probably stings if there is any broken skin, but if you do it a couple of times a day for a few days you will soon notice that they no longer do it and it must relieve the itching (I use it myself on insect bites). It's one of the cheapest solutions and I always keep a jar of 'metho' in the cupboard.
