81 Home Remedies for Mange


NU-STOCK!!! My chihuahua got mange a couple years ago. I identified it as demodex mange. I tried with no luck to use the borax and hydrogen peroxide treatments. It made her skin so dry and I just didn't think it worked well at all. I finally did some research and our local farm store carries something called NU-STOCK which contains sulfer and it worked like magic. I only had to use it like two or three times. You put it on, let it sit for a few minutes, and give them a bath. It stinks, but it is cheap and works awesome!!!!!!! Her mage was improving within days. It took a while for all her hair to grow back, but I saw a difference within a few days of using it. I think it was only like 9 bucks too.


My mini pin had some mange on his face. I washed him with organic tea tree shampoo (the human kind), then put some aqueous tea tree antiseptic oil mixture directly on the affected area everyday for three days. I could see the difference after one day. It was completely gone after a week and now, two months later, there's been no sign of it.

I bought the pure coconut oil as a back up to the botax and peroxide treatment and i used the coconut oil first. I just Poured the whole can of melted coconut oil and left him outside in a crate overnight in a cool area and bathed him the next morning. I used a hydrocortisone shampoo and rubben hydrocortisone cream on his red irritated 'itchy' areas. I also used HOT SPOTS gel you can buy at petsmart because he had sores rotating with tea tree oil on the sores. Two weeks later his coat was beautiful. I do this once a month at least. I also saw fleas sliding down when the oil was setting. I never had to use the botax and peroxide. Coconut oil is safe to ingest as well. It has recommendations to use orally as well. Im not sure if he had mange or just a heat rash bacterial infection either. Hope this helps.


My name is Chelsi and I have a 1yr old Husky/Rot. She got mange from my cousins dog months ago. We took her to the vet and the little guys finally cleared up. But still after all this time she has all these patchy spots and scabs and bleeding to the bare skin on her tail. I have two major concerns before I try the borax and peroxide. Open wounds okay with this treatment? All effected areas on her face, okay with this treatment? Please tell me your thoughts and opinions on these two things. I need to know before I try it on her. Thank you so much!! I hope this works!!


I am reporting back about my German Short Hair Pointer having mange at base of tail. I tried the home remedy and she stopped itching and it looked good the next day. By the end of the next day, she was biting at area and now was irritated. I remember reading about making the borax solution with less water. At this point, I made a paste of it. Using a sponge, I concentrated on the base of the tail and a little wider. She seemed to be ok, maybe it bothered her at first, but a few minutes later after reassuring her its ok, she was fine. I did this outside in the sun and stayed outside with her until it dried completely. I knew some of it would fall off. What was left did a great job that was on her area for hours. The next day her bare spot had not been red, or irritated. In fact, the hair had started to grow back! Next, I checked her for fleas with the NIT comb. (Love it, fleas can't dodge this one, picks up all flea dirt too!) Unfortunately, I found many of them. I washed her again in Seargent's Oatmeal Flea & Tick Shampoo really concentrating on her back and belly area. I probably spent almost 10 min massaging her down with the shampoo to kill these awful fleas. (Now being 2 days later from last shampoo) Chloe loved the massage! After drying her off, she was happy and not itching. I treated my 2 boxers with the Sentry PRO Monthly Flea, Tick & Mosquito Treatment. I will treat Chloe in a few days not wanting to overdo it with her. My backyard will be treated after it stops raining and carpets. Their bedding has been washed again in Borax too. I will use white vinegar (that I also read in my home remedies) for my carpets adding it to my carpet cleaner. For the past 3 days, my dogs have been getting 1 oderless garlic capsule everyday to repel ticks and fleas. My dogs don't mind it! Thanks for all the suggestions!

After Reading all the remedies for mange, I decided to go by the most talked about remedy with the Borax. We discovered that there was lump under our German Short Haired Pointer. (who adopted us - stray) Since she is black/white ticking with black liver spots, we never noticed the lump at the base of her stumpy tail. When I initially looked at it, I didn't understand what it was since it was all scabbed over under her fur. I did detect some fleas on our 2 boxers and with a NIT comb (excellent for finding fleas in short coats) checked our German Short Haired Pointer. Since she did have them too, I thought this was a bad case of fea dirt! I have never delt with fleas before, only ticks. I used Seargeant's Oatmeal flea and tick shampoo right away. Afterwards, I noticed some of the hair coming off the base of the Pointer's tail. I figured it softened it up and fell off. By morning there was a round bare spot at the base of her tail that looked good. I read in one of the suggestions to use a flea and tick shampoo and leave on for 5 min. I scrubbed all areas, being gentle by her tail. At this point, I have not called the vet and assuming she has the derm mange. I am curious to see if I can head this off. I have just come back from getting the supplies for the borax solution and will try it. She is still biting and itching her bare spot. I hope the other dogs don't get it. I am going to wash all bedding in borax. Will report back to everyone! Thank you for the suggestions!


it sounds crazy but Listerine mouth wash @ baby oil ,pour mouth wash all over dog rub it in, then rub baby oil in all over dogs body ,in 1 treatment cleared up in 3-4 days.


Zinc taken orally has a marvellous rapid healing effect on the skin. It should be taken regularly every day. It also acts as a preventive. Scientists have found it even prevents the malarial parasite from entering the skin.
Zinc is very much associated with protein foods. Thus, you may assume that most foods high in zinc are protein-rich as well.
The best sources of zinc include beef, lamb, pork, crabmeat, turkey, chicken, lobster, clams and salmon.
If you are a vegetarian, you will most probably intake less zinc that those who have meat-based diets.
Wikipedia says - When there is adequate zinc in the soil, the food plants that contain the most zinc are wheat (germ and bran) and various seeds (sesame, poppy, alfalfa, celery, mustard). Zinc is also found in beans, nuts, almonds, whole grains, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds and blackcurrants.
Good zinc food sources aside from meats are dairy products such as milk and cheese, yeast, peanuts, beans, and wholegrain cereals, brown rice, whole wheat bread, potato and yogurt. Of all these vegetarian zinc foods, pumpkin seeds offer one of the most concentrated non-meat food sources of zinc.

Recommended Daily Allowance: The RDA of 3 mg for infants, 10 mg for children, and 10-15 mg for adults is suggested. Growing children, pregnant and lactating women need more.
A dog would probably need as much as a human infant
