Ted's Dog Mange Cure (Most Popular)
DO NOT CONFUSE BORAX WITH BORIC ACID!
DO NOT USE BORIC ACID IN PLACE OF BORAX!
Ted from Bangkok, Thailand writes, "The best cure for dog mange is to mix a 1% hydrogen peroxide solution with water and add borax. Dissolve thoroughly. Wash the dog with it once a week. Do NOT WASH THE solution left on the dog with ANY WATER. Do not wipe the dog dry. The solution will take effect on mange. The treatment period should not be longer than a month or two. The dog will probably not be resistant as the treatment is painless. This has worked well for me."
More Exact Measurements (excerpted from various emails on our Reader Question & Answer Section)
Ted replies, "A definitive recipe is add 1-2 tablespoon of borax per 500 cc of 1% hydrogen peroxide solution. To make a 3% hydrogen peroxide to 1%, roughly get one part of 3% H2O2 plus two parts of water. Then apply them on the dog. Wash with this solution daily, no rinsing. If it doesn't go away, I have found mites, or mange to have a large "beehive" hidden somewhere. In which case, quarantine the dog in a small area that is 100% sterile."
"Approximate measurements are 1 bottle of 500 of 3% H2O2, plus 1000 of the cc of water, plus heaping 3 tablespoons of borax. Stir until most of borax is dissolved. The borax is past the point of saturation here so you will see some borax around. Technically the concentration is around 1.5% H2O2, and this is a bit stronger because by the time we finish with it, the H2O2 gets reacted with other things, and by the time we used it is is usually ends up near a 1% solution anyway."
"You need to get put as much borax until it no longer dissolves in a pail of water and forms a precipitate. This is a saturated solution of borax. Add H2O2 to about 1% concentration to a pail of water. Soak the entire dog, several times. Keep the dog wet for some time. The borax will destroy the eggs from laying under the skin which causes the mange. Get some solution and spray or use this to wipe all floors so the dog will not get re infected. Repeat this every week when bathing. This is not a perfect cure, but it my dog now no longer have mange. My dog was completely cured. You can try other chemicals such as sodium perborate, which is more convenient since you don't need to add the hydrogen peroxide."
"The solution (borax or preferably sodium perborate) is to be applied AFTER the shampooing and rinsing. The sodium perborate should remain on the dog after the bath. You will not rinse this at all. It must remain on the dog throughout the day so that it will act continuously on the bugs."
"However, I do recommend a less toxic form of borax, which is sodium perborate if you can find one. The secret is that borax (plus hydrogen peroxide) will work better then most other remedies I have tried, this includes mineral oil, neem oil (no, neem oil does not kill the mange as effectively as sodium perborate) I have tried it. In my "mange colonies" and commercial brands to kill insects don't work. Hydrogen peroxide DOES NOT KILL mange, I USED IT SIMPLY USED IT AS A CATALYST for ordinary borax in case you cannot obtain sodium perborate. Mineral oils simply prevent oxygen from reaching mange, but that didn't stop it. I have tried naphta, bentonite clays, DMSO, potassium permanganate, light fluid, etc. They all worked temporarily, and it just came back. I must make a strong statement that the formula (borax+h2o2 or sodium perborate) works bests and it is broad spectrum. You can use it to control mange, mites, fleas, and lyme disease (initiated by those crawly insects). I have actually compared side to side with neem oil, mineral oil, apple cider vinegar and others here in Bangkok and this is the most wide spectrum cure I have found. Borax prevents denaturation of DNA/RNA in dogs and I currently use this as life extension for dogs. For example a ribose sugar, deoxyribose sugar, and various sugar that causes accelerated aging in dogs can be slowed down with supplementation of dogs indirectly when you do the borax wash. "
"Prepare peroxide 1% solution, add 2-3 tablespoon of borax to that cup. Stir and wait for a couple of minutes for the borax to dissolve. The formula doesn't require an exact science. The importance is to add enough borax until the solution is no longer soluble and well past saturation."
"...The reason why it is not working is YOU CANNOT RINSE THE DOG OF borax and peroxide solution with any shampoo or water. After bathing the dog, keep the dog that way, no drying no rinsing. This is why the dog has not improved. Also BORAX is added DIRECTLY to the 1% hydrogen peroxide solution and no water is added separately, otherwise the solution is too weak."
7/12/2006: "I have reviewed all the dog's mange treatments both by my own tests and by many contributors. It appears that many people have trouble obtaining materials, such as sodium perborate hydrate, so I revised the remedy to hydrogen peroxide plus borax solution applied only once or so every week. The solution of sodium perborate hydrate is very much similar when borax and hydrogen peroxide is added. Some have either substituted hydrogen peroxide with benzoyl peroxide.
The problem about benzoyl peroxide is the upper limit by which you can use it without effect the dog as it is somewhat more toxic if given beyond a 10% concentration. 5% is usually a safe concentration. Benzoyl peroxide because of its toxicity is somewhat of an insecticide, while hydrogen peroxide is not, what it is in the original formulation is that it is a penetrant allowing the borax to go through the skin. Now some did not like hydrogen peroxide due to its limited supplies, so they make use of apple cider vinegar. For me a regular vinegar will do. Both a vinegar and hydrogen peroxide has two similarities. It is both a penetrant and when added with a safe insecticidal material such as borax, which has an toxicity on LD 50 equivalent to that of salt, this is the preferred method. However, one should not use boric acid since there are reported deaths associated with boric acid but not borax.
Boric acid is not recommended for use as it is much more toxic than borax. Borax's toxicity is about 3000 mg/kg, which is the equivalent toxicity to about that of salt. (check wikipedia). The idea is to make a solution of borax so that the solution can cover the entire body and penetrate through the skin of the dog to kill the demodex mites, for example. To use a spot treatment by pure powder will take an infinitely long time as it does not get to it through the dog's skin.
In some cases, people have tried neem oil, mineral oil. Both of these have similar effectiveness, but in different ways. Neem oil prevents the Demodex fleas from laying eggs by modifying their hormones, while mineral oils are moderately toxic only to the demodex eggs, not necessarily killing them. However, both are very limited based on my tests in really killing the insect. You see borax will both kill the eggs, modifying the hormones and their eggs by drying them all at once. The weakness of borax is limited solubility and limited penetration of the skin which you need either vinegar, hydrogen peroxide, benzoyl peroxide (toxic), MSM or DMSO solution. Ideally 10% DMSO should be preferred.
Pine Sol has limited insecticidal effectiveness, being a contact insecticidal, and does not provide lasting killing power once it has evaporated and does not kill living fleas, but it does kill their eggs somewhat. Only a fairly concentrated solution works and it does not prevent re-laying of stray eggs by the dog. In other words, the use of neem oil, mineral oil, benzoyl peroxide, and vaseline will not prevent the recurring of mange since eggs are not just on the dog, but can be anywhere in the house. Therefore re-infection is at issue. The one magic that borax has over its neighbors is that the borax powder that the dogs leaves in the house will kill the eggs even after the dogs no longer has mange and re-infection is therefore next to impossible. However, borax has limited effect on killing the larger mites and fleas, but not mange.
I found that adding 1/8 teaspoon per liter of water of borax added to the dog's water will cause the larger fleas to dry up and die at the same time. My dog for some reason likes to eat something like more than 1 gram of the sodium perborate crystals whenever he feels sick and the fleas just die off. The borax modifies the dog's blood and kills the mange inside out. This is why borax, i.e., sodium perborate, is required for mange, but not anything else due to preventive re-infection of the mange by the powder of the borax that destroys the eggs where the dog sleeps and where it walks around throughout the house.
VASELINE: The problem about using vaseline as an insecticide is that it has limited killing of eggs, but its weakness is that it is not a penetrant, and therefore the frequency of applications will take at least once every other day. Additionally, the hair of the dog will prevent proper application.
Some have went so far as to not use a solution of borax with hydrogen peroxide as a rinse then followed likely, perhaps a borax powder after bath. On the argument of being effective only as a spot treatment. Since dogs do not have sweat glands, not using a rinse will prevent the borax from absorbing into the skin to kill the mange under its skin. So this is not going to work. You need both borax as an insecticide, the water as the solution which to spread it to the skin surface, and a reliable penetrant to get it through the skin, such as vinegar, msm, DMSO, or even hydrogen peroxide. A benzoyl peroxide is both a penetrant and insecticide, but at higher concentration is somewhat toxic for dogs and as a result you are pretty much limited by the maximum concentration not to exceed beyond 5% being a preferred safety. I would prefer to limit myself at 3%.
I therefore suggest, not to get you lost in the woods, is that whatever formulation you use, always stick with borax and borax derivatives, such as sodium perborate monohydrate being the main insecticidal chemicals for the dog.
Pyrethrum is o.k. but in very low concentration of about 0.1% - 0.2% to prevent skin irritation for the dogs near the skin infection areas. The second mix you need is always the penetrant and the third formulation is appropriate dilutions in water. To provide lasting killing effect, non of these chemicals should generally be non-volatile insecticidal mixtures, which unfortunately most recommended are, with exception of perhaps borax and bentonite. Bentonite causes eggs to dry, so they can be used also, but they have no insecticidal mixture as borax and borax can performs both killing the insect, modifying the hormones to prevent egg laying, becomes a stomach poison for the insect, and at the same time causes their eggs to dry up.
I therefore will remain very flexible about what penetrants you use including hydrogen peroxide, benzoyl peroxide (limited concentration), and vinegar. It must be noted that when formulating any mange it must be noted that they must be non-volatile and the chemicals should cause microscopic residues around the house so that re infection of mange is prevented, including mites and fleas.
I think this wraps up the basic theory and application of mange treatment, and hopefully other people will make a more effective formulations in the future at least equal or better than the original formula I have proposed. Just want to tell you that there are many ways you can treat mange, but the issue is one of toxicity, re infection, toxic levels, which portion kills it and how, and which is the penetrant which is the key to it all. Penetrant is important, the chemical must reach the target demodex under the skin. Usually hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, DMSO, and MSM will do that. It must be reminded again that borax, to work most effectively, is to prepare a solution without washing it off, followed by a small amount of borax powder to be applied if you wish. Any other application other than this such as using as purely powder form is NOT going to work.
06/24/2009: Lisa from Princeton, IL: "I have a rott puppy. I recently have found out that the whole litter had mange. My friend is taking her puppy to the vet for a 6 week series of shots. I have started the Borax mixture. My friend talked to the vet and they said the Borax mixture will NOT work. We both said yea it figures they would say that because it is a home remedy. My puppy's sores look as if they are getting worse. Is this normal? I bathed her on Monday and again today (wednesday). How many more times do I have to do this before I see improvement? My husband just says she isn't getting better and that I should take her to the vet. Please offer advice."Replies
05/03/2012: Alicia from Corpus Christi, Texas replies: "Did your dog ever get better? I have a 1 and 4 monts german sheperd mix and he has had demodex mange since he was about 5 months. I have tried several treatments from vet dips, to ivermectin and he gets it back. When I use Teds remedy it seems like the sores get worse, with puss and everything. Could he be having a reaction against the remedy?"
06/23/2009: Sooz from Dunlap, Tn: "I have used the formula for three days now on what my neighbors tell me is red mange. The stray pup is 13 weeks old, white and had not lost hair, but had tiny red spots all over belly which I thought was a reaction to fleas at first. As the days went on she started scratching like crazy I felt so bad for her but could not afford a vet so I found this page and started it immediately. Also gave her benydrl ever 4 hours to help with the itch. This is the third day, the first day itched still, then day 2 almost a day with out much itching, today she is still quit red all over. Is this normal I wonder. I see people here saying the redness went a way by the second day, so I am worried this might now be working and I might be harming the dog.
I think If I could do something to help with the redness and itching she would heal faster. Is there anything that helps more with the itch itself.
Here is how I use the forumla, hopefully I am doing it right:
One cup hydrogen peroxide to 9 teaspoons of Borax powder (didn't have a tablespoon, so assuming 9 teaspoons is 3 table spoons. After settling I add 4 cups of warm water. Pour on the dog and let her drip dry. I am doing this twice a day.
Sadly I made the mistake of allowing this puppy to play with my two chihuhuas for almost 2 weeks after I brought the pup home. I should have known better. I now have them seperated, but the two chihuahuas are now itching, though not consistently like the pup. I have dipped them too, and started dipping all of them 3 days ago.
1. Is 2 times a day initially too much? And if not how long should i do this twice a day? It's not clear in the instructions.
2. Is there something that I can put on her to help with the itching. I heard others talk about vegatable oil, but don't want to prevent the formula from working.
3. HOw long should I expect to see the over all redness?
4. I have no access to Organic ACV, will store bought do the same? And how much do I add to the formula. I know that supermarket ACV cures blisters on my own feet, and though it dries them out a bit it works wonders.
I'm very grateful to you fred for sharing your remedy with all of us. i have read every post in this forum, just need some clarification that I am doing it correctly, and a couple of side question..
Thank you in advance."
07/12/2009: Zuzana from Gold Coast, Australia replies: "Just reading your post and according to Ted's orginal instructions for the cure, you must mix the hydrogen peroxide with the water first, THEN add the borax. I am no chemic, but Ted mentions that if you do it the other way around (ie: add the borax and peroxide together, then add water) the solution is too weak to work. Hope that helps"
06/17/2009: Danielle DeVoe from Bay Shore, NY, USA: "I have an 11 mo old bulldog that has "allergies and yeast" I was at the pet food store and ran into a woman who had a 7 mo old bully. She said hers had mites that were causing bumps and hair loss and red spots...same as mine. I went onto the internet to review what mites were, OMG...I HATE BUGS of any kind. Anyway I wanted a home remedy as opposed to the meds/dips which from everything I read don't work and are toxic. Found this solution and tried it last night. Is it possible for it to start to work immediately? He looks so much better. Can I treat his ears with this solution on a cotton ball? I remembered it wrong though so now I am a little worried I used 1 cup of Peroxide, 2 cups of water and 8 tablespoons of 20 Mule Team Borax. I washed him with Head and Shoulders Shampoo (Breeder recommended) and Sponged the solution on his head and under his tail and underside and poured the remainder on his back. We have him on front line which I thought worked on these creatures but now I am doing this. I also have a ShiTzu and Boston/Frenchie Mix. Do they need to be treated (no signs at all)?"
[YEA] 06/16/2009: Annie from Independence, MO, USA: "My 5-year old yorkie-pooh (Katy) was a "dead-dog-walking" last October. After rounds of ivermectin and many, many mitaban dips, (as well as a couple of cortisone shots for the itching), to treat her demidectic manage, her poor paws were just covered with thick scabs, which oozed. She was listless, wouldn't hardly eat, and she even hurt to walk outside to just potty. My vet suggested we scrape them to at least let the under coat heal. I tried this.........and they just were not healing. And I hated to see her suffer any longer.
On a Saturday, I made the decision to take her to put her down the next Monday. When I shared this with my college-aged daughter, she cried......and cried. Then she got tough and went searching on the internet. As I was told that Katy didn't have much, if any, immune system, my daughter searched sites to deal with this. Ok.....we were getting somewhere. We were going to feed her HIGH ANTIOXIDANT food, (people food, NOT dog food) with emphasis on HIGH PROTEIN and very little carbs. I decided to give this one more chance. So we began feeding her salmon, steamed ground sirloin, cottage cheese, egg whites, veggies (lower carb).
In addition, I ran across TED's manage cure........and began the procedure, every night. Within 4 days of beginning the borax/perioxide treatment, I noticed a significant improvement in Katy. Not only were her paws beginning to heal, but her personality was changing.....she was showing signs of more energy and pep!!!
Long story short......I still maintain a dip of her paws a couple of times per week and still feed her the high protein diet. But she is a NEW DOG!!! And thanks to this treatment, given a new lease on life!! Thank you so very much!!!"
[YEA] 06/13/2009: Frank from Converse, TX: "Just wanted to say how happy I am now, a year and one half later, after reading about Ted's cure. I have treated over 75 dogs with 100% cure rate. No side effects and happy hairy dogs that I could have never have done without this forum. Thank You!!! I used the sodium perborate in the form of oxy... clean, a laundry additive. I figured this out by researching on the web, what products are derived from sodium perborate. It does lighten the coats. I used three scoops, or 4 tablespoons powder to two gallons water, and poured this mixture over each dog after bathing. I poured a little at a time over small sections of the dog and massaged in, until all of the solution was used. Letting them air dry. They loved the massage of the solution over their bodies as I made sure the solutions was warm but not hot. I have used this solution on stray dogs with skin problems that were not dianoised, because I didn't go to the vet. I just treated and watched them. Other dogs had scarcoptic mange and they healed and all have beautiful coats..BJ in Texas"Replies

06/08/2009: Jan from Barstow, CA: "My 12 week old puppy was just diagnosed with demodectic mange. The vet gave her several shots and a cream to put on her bumps which cover about a 3rd of her body. I'm going to start her on Ted's treatment today. She is very inflamed around her eyes. What do I do about that? It appears that I should keep the solution out of her eyes. I am praying this will work. The vet didn't say anything about sterilizing her bedding either. So tonight everything gets washed. She's very small, just 4 pounds so far, so I'm nervous about other treatments as well. I will post back how she responds."Replies

06/07/2009: Karen from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: "wow, ted's remedy of peroxide, water and borax is working so far on my dogs sarcoptic mange. we are keeping our fingers crossed. today june 6th, the homemade cure of 1cup peroxide, 2 cups water and 3 heaping teaspoons of the borax went on our dog rocky a mixed breed(sheep dog and sheltie). for 3 months this poor thing has been suffering along with my pocketbook.i want to tell you $$$$. in the beginning of march he began scratching at his ears and i noticed the typical crust along the edges. took him right away to the vet. he is so skittish so he had to be knocked out just to get his ears looked at. well no mites he said but how bout we groom him -give him his shots,nails etc/$255.00 and he came home drugged and constantly scratching. within a week took him back-says allergies-prednisone and antihistimine-$115. 2 weeks losing his hair and bumps all over keeping us all up at night with his scratching and legs hitting the hardwood floors 50 times a minute. omg!1 week no visit for rocky just meds$35. 2weeks visit-allergy meds $90. tues june 1 visit $125 skin scraping reveals mites,shampoo,antibiotic,household spray, dog spray.june 2=vet calls and says after carefull examination of parasite under microscope it is the scabies. ugh! $35 for revolution applied june 2nd-no relief and 2 benadryl at night.
today i mixed up the goods-put on myself to see if it burned(no discomfort at all)poured it all over the back and massaged down to his feet. he was ticked as he hates baths. had his leash on and walked him about a half hour til he dried. surprisingly it made his coat so soft when he dried. my whole family is amazed. just a few bites to his feet and a couple of scratches but no real intense scratching as it has been 24-7. we are all praying he sleeps through the night and he is even less itchy tomorrow. i would hope it cures this horrible nasty problem.i made a fresh batch and cleaned all the floors and have been disinfecting the entire house. i will be sure to check this site for any new remedies. ted-you are an angel!!!!thanks karen"

10/26/2009: Peggy from Delbarton, Wv replies: "Are you doing this on a daily basis? If so, you need to until you see some healing. I try to reapply it now that it's under semi-control with each bath. He hates water so, it's only once every two weeks now. It helps too if you can mix up a small batch and apply when and where you see him scratching. You just have to stay after these lil buggers as they don't seem to want to give up their host. I am like you,, I am determined to win this war.
I have pictures posted on here some where of Ruff before and after. Just look through the pages and you can compare his mange with your dogs. It's always the same spots but if I don't get on it right away they magically appear in the same places on the opposite side of him. He has some now but I'm not stressing like I was. You can get some good vitamins to boost his immune system as well as stress tabs at Wally World or probably any good pet store. Good luck and keep us posted."

This is the 3rd time her mange has come back after giving her the oral Ivermectin that 2 different vets perscribed and I'm ready to try something new. My question is when I mix up the solution to put on her, you say to leave it on- do not towel dry. If I let it sit on there can I still blow dry her? She is a wimp and will shake for hours if she's cold and the last thing I need now is her getting even more sick! Thank you so much- can't wait to try it."
[YEA] 06/05/2009: firefly_66 from Hempstead, TX: "Thanks so much, Ted! I brought home a stray dog two weeks ago, and the local vet wanted upwards of $120 to diagnose and treat her mange. Instead, I used your remedy on her twice, and for less than a dollar, I know have a happy, mange-free pooch. Fur started regrowing immediately after the first treatment, and in less than two weeks, she now shows no signs of mange. I'll treat her one more time, since I'm told mange can recur. One note: the peroxide did bleach her black fur to a reddish brown, but that's much better than having all her fur fall out."
06/05/2009: Judy : "My dog had Mange for months. I was so sure that he was going to die. I was so ashamed for not being financially able to take him to the vet. I was afraid to ask a pet rescue program for fear that I would be arrested or sued for the condition my dog was in. I searched the web for cures. My husband insisted that the burnt oil treatment was the only cure! We tried it, it didn't work! Finally, I found your web site. THANK YOU!!! I used the hydrogen peroxide and borax formula. I couldn't bear to see him in the condition he was in. So I stopped playing with him and petting him. I would just go out and feed and water him. It got to where he wouldn't even get near me, like a total stranger! One hour after treating him with the HP / Borax solution, he came up to me and layed his head on my knee. And he wanted to play with me.
It's too early to know if he can be cured, but you have given me hope, and my puppy back! "

Should I mix it vinegar or water? and how much in ml or cl please ? Could you please give more directives for the people using the sodium perborate ? Also can it be safely mix to his water ? or sprinkle on him as a powder ? I have applied it so far once as a paste mixed with vinegar and once in pouring it on him after washing him with Head and Shoulder shampoo. I have mixed 3 tablespoons of borax with 1.5l of water&vinegar. So far I can't really tell if it is improving or not. He is still scratching himself. Many thanks for your advice."
05/31/2009: Cindy from Aransas Pass, Texas: "I have a 1 yr old chihuahua. She was diagnosed with demodex cornei on Friday. The vet gave us treatment of cephalexin, benadyl and Mitaban. The diagnosis page stated on it not to use Mitaban on toy breeds. I had found your page several weeks ago and wondered if this is what my dog had. So it was really no surprise to find that she did, just that the vet ordered the treatment that he did.
We did give the antibiotic and benadryl but I will not do the Mitaban dips!
Yesterday we bought some tea tree oil and applied directly to spots on our pet. It has generalized so she was pretty much covered with oil. It helped tremendously with the itching. No scratching for over 12 hours. This morning we applied our first dose of "ted's treatment" mixed as follows... 1 cup hydrogen peroxide, 2 cups water and 3 tablespoons of 20 mule team borax. I am really hoping this works.
I contacted vet yesterday to voice my concerns over my pet possibly licking the mitaban off.. they were very uncaring and told us to watch her.. this was after they told us to put her in a kennel to dry.. kind of hard to watch her while in a kennel.. no collar given.. and they got very rude when I ask about getting one. I have contacted another vet to get others options... So far first vet bill was close to $200... Its not the money.. its the fact they honestly dont care that Mitaban is not for use in small breeds.
Our girl doesnt have any "raw" spots.. just hair loss on approx 15% of her body... I will update as treatment continues.. Should I treat daily, weekly,... I have seen both and just wondering what is normally done.. also if there is any additional I can do that wont harm her.
05/18/2009: Beth from Killingly, CT: "Hi, I can't wait to try Ted's remedy on my 6 month old bulldog. My question is...Do I completely submerge her in the "dip" or just give her a soaking in the solution of 2 cups h20, 1 cup peroxide and 3-4 tble borax. So if it is the "dip" how much of the solution is needed to fill a bathtub or big bucket? That is where I'm stumped...the measurements for a full dip??? thank you"Replies
