Remedy for Genetic Mange

Are there any home remedies for genetic mange? A friend's dog has it pretty bad and they may have to put it down. They bought the puppy from a pet and garden store and he had no signs of it then, but now he does and it's pretty bad.

The active ingredient Permethrin works to get rid of Mange-You can buy Freedom45 spot on for dogs-cost is $15. for 3 months - can be bought at or buy Ivermectin- use once a week, - cheaper online, the pour on is what we have used in past too-dose is 22lbs per ML/CC.

Don't give up on the dog. It may take up to 6 months of meds, put its well worth it. The trick is make sure you have the 2 main ingredients in the meds. I have done these and they work. I have done animal rescue for years and come across just about everything. Just don't give up on the dogs, he/she will thank you more that you can imagine after it heals.

Yes, yes, yes. Easy, inexpensive, 4 baths in 2 weeks cures all manges. Check Hibbi scrub. It is a very diluted medical scrub that I am told is very safe. It is chlorhex something. No time to research again. Need to get this to you now.


Also important - these dogs must be spayed and neutered. Demedex mange will be transmitted from the pregnant Mom. You can cure these pups but please do not let them breed. Online you can puchase this medical scrub. Trying to remember what percentage of the chlorhex this should be. Shelters can buy it by the gallon which will last for many many dogs because alls needed is a very small amount in bath water.
