Could any one please give me a home remedy for the mange?
Tina from Georgia
I adopted a dog that someone threw out that had mange. I bought liquid castille soap and added some tea tree oil to it. It didn't cost too much, soothed the dog's skin, and got rid of the mange. You have to be extra careful not to get it the dog's eyes. I also used this on another dog that had hot spots and a third that had allergies. I was always surprised at how the animals would stand still for me to rub it in when I was shampooing them. They seemed to hate other treatments that I tried. Anyway, my point is that it works for a multitude of things, is cheap, and can be kept forever until it's used up.
PS: This works great for people with dandruff too. (07/06/2006)
Just a quick heads up about using petroleum-based products (like the motor oil suggestion and also things like dish soap) can cause liver failure in domestic animals - so if your dog is a "licker" - might want to bypass that one. (07/20/2006)
Take the dog to the vet. Mange is from dirty conditions and gets really bad. Can get in the eyes and all. Needs ivermection from the vet. If not taken care of will need IV treatment. VET (10/16/2006)
