Mange: Trying to set up measurements correctly and do not understand how much 1000 cc of water is. Can you put that in oz, quarts or gallons for me.

Thank you


EC: We used the google calculator for this:

1000 cc = 4.22675284 US cups
1000 cc = 33.8140227 US fluid ounces
1000 cc = 1.05668821 US quarts
1000 cc = 0.264172052 US gallons

[YEA]  Tried the mange cure when it got bad. Had to do it three times. First time I did not spray the dog's house and it came back. Second time I did not spray the grass where he lays and it came back. After the third time of it coming back I bought a childs swimming pool, mixed one bottle of peroxide with Ted's recommended mix and kept pouring it over the dog, re-using the stuff that poured off of the dog into the pool. When I felt he was doused enough, I used the extra to spray his house and the grass. (it was a bit dirty but I figured it didn't matter.) Well, it's been months and it didn't come back!!! My cat also had a patch (she is the dog's best friend and lays with him in his dog house.) Only one application for her and it was gone. Thanks Ted!

Read reasons for getting mange is a suppressed immune system. ie there are other problems so not to say definitly no, but you may be passing on the problem. Talk to a breeder you trust and good luck !!

This was in regards to breeding a dog that had mange.

[YEA]  Hi

I thought my dog just had dry skin from flea shampoos I'd been using and when people saw him they'd say I think he has mange! I found this web site and bought some Borax. I have treated him with the 3% peroxide diluted with water and a Tblsp Borax per cup of solution. I've done it three times and his hair is coming back and it seems to be working!!!!! I have also been putting olive oil on his dry skin and he's just itching like a normal dog now instead of a maniac! Thank you so much ... you've saved me hundreds of dollars in vet bills..

I am a bit confused.... Did you use those measurements for the daily spray??? And how much peroxide did you dilute with how much water??? Thank you my dog is in a lot of pain and I'd like to figure this out asap!

Thank you,
Doris


EC: Try your local grocery store - laundry aisle. Publix sells it, also Walmart!

I have been using Ted's remedy for 1 week on my 5 month old pit for DEMODECTIC MANGE. I mix 4 cups warm water to 2 cups hydrogen peroxide and stir in 6 tablespoon borax. I pour the solution over my dog while she is in my bath tub, paying close attention to the spots that are affected. And using a cotton ball soaked in the solution to get around her mouth and around her eyes. Then I sprinkle a bit more borax over her coat. I let her air dry. I have read this as being a dip. Should I have her completely submerged in this solution for a period of time? Or am I okay with pouring it over her coat until it is completely gone? She is miserable and cold when the whole thing is over and I want to make sure I am doing it effectively. Also how frequently can I use this solution on her? I have done it twice in one week. Can I use it every day? I have also changed her diet to a high protein and low carb diet adding raw meat twice a week.

Hi. I've just tried the borax-peroxide treatment for my lab, Ezra. His mange is so bad that he's got no more hair on his legs and neck and part of his face. I just hope it will work coz' Ezra have been through a lot-amytrass, ivermectin,anti-biotics, all the works. I bought borax at Alysons Chemicals (they're in Yellow Pages) for only PhPeso 57.50 per kilo (very cheap indeed!) My question is, can I also use the mixture for my other 3 dogs who do not have mange? I was thinking of using them for say, once-a-month, as a preventive treatment.

Thanks and hope to hear from you, guys...Tess djo

[YEA]  Hi,

I rescued two 4mth old staffie pups with severe sarcoptic manage, unfortunately one of them had to be euthanised due to the severity of the mange and infection - thankfully one of them is now doing well, but i am using the borax solution every third day at the moment as the mange was so severe (she has no hair whatsoever). Her skin is very dry and i want to help her as much as i can, therefore would it be safe to bathe her in extra soft baby shampoo and maybe apply baby lotion afterwards (inbetween borax dips) to help ease the dryness? If not, what else can i use/apply to increase the condition of her skin. I have also been feeding her multi-vits for dogs as i think she needs all the help she can get.

The mites also seem to favour my arms so i tried Lyclear derma cream but the bites increased, so now i'm using the solution on myself which seems to be working quite well (fingers crossed).

NB: When making the borax solution ensure you follow the directions to a tee or it won't be effective!

For severe cases visit your vet for Advocate, within days my staff's condition improved - the borax solution helped but she needed additional intervention.

Also due to changes in the EU, borax is no longer available, only borax substitute - will this be as effective?

Hi,

I've set up a backyard kennel, beneath a weatherguard roof for my dogs during the treatment period. I'm trying to keep it a cloth free environment, so very little inside the 13x7x6 space except a water bowl, their food and toys, and their blanket at night (which I take out after they eat/play/sleep). The weatherguard has plastic panels that roll down and zip to keep them warm from the wind at night. But we're in spring in southern CA so the temperatures are lovely and not extreme.

Just wondering should I also treat the concrete and kennel fence with the borax solution? I only want to go through this experience once. Period! And I was reading they stay alive in moist environments, but wasn't sure if that was moist water on grass/concrete, or moist on the animal? Both

It sounds like a stupid question but just covering all my bases ...

Thanks,

Tracy

BELLE FROM LONDON; IT'S SAD THAT YOUR OTHER PUPPY HAD TO BE PUT TO SLEEP; I'M SORRY FOR YOUR LOSS. THE BEST THING YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR PUPPY IS KEEP TRYING THE PEROXIDE AND BORAX AS RECOMMENDED BY TED'S DIRECTIONS IN SMALLER AMOUNTS; I HAD TO DO MY KITTEN THAT HAD SEVERE MANGE AS WELL AS AN UPPER RESPIRATORY INFECTION, BUT I FOLLOWED TED'S DIRECTIONS AS BEST AS I COULD, IT IS ROUGH AND STRENUOUS SOME TIMES BUT WELL WORTH IT'S REWARDS. JUST TRY KEEPING AN EYE ON YOUR PUPPY SEE IF HE GETS TOO THIRSTY, HIS/HER EYES SHOW DISCOLORATION, URINATION MORE THAN USUAL(I DOUBT WILL HAPPEN), BUT OTHER WISE NOT MUCH TOO WORRY ABOUT, THANKFULLY MY KITTEN HAS SURVIVED IT SO FAR AND NOW AFTER MANY MONTHS I HAVE TO DO THIS ALL OVER AGAIN, BUT SHE IS A STRONG TROOPER AND WORTH ALL HER WEIGHT IN GOLD AND THEN SOME.

I ONLY HAVE TED AND A FEW OTHER'S TO THANK FOR THEIR GREAT AND ACCURATE INPUT. THANK YOU, GOOD LUCK

[YEA]  My 9 year old Weimerainer has had a systemic yeast infection for approximately 10 months. Symptoms include significant body odor, minor hair loss (patches), redness in the paws,ears etc, We have taken him to 3 different vets and have been prescribed several different shampoos, veterinary foods, ketoconazole, antibiotics and antihistamines. None of these remedies have worked and have cost hundreds of dollars. We have been recommended to an allergist which would have cost over a thousand dollars US. Thankfully, I found Ted's Borax and Hydrogen peroxide remedy. I am on my third day of daily treatments of borax/peroxide baths and Omega 3 oils in food and have seen a miraculous transformation. My dog is completely odorless, the redness is clearing up and he is not itching or licking his paws. And the cost of the treatment was about $10 US total. Thank You Ted for the suggestions - they have made a significant difference

Demodectic mange

Got the measurments ok, but I have a question about sterilizing the home. If I'm not mistaken I've read that demodectic mange is not contagious. My dog has demo so do i need to go thru all of the steps for the house as if he had sarcoptic?

Yes, you will need to treat your house, or your dog will be re-infected.

I've been treating my dog for mange on & off her entire life. I can't wait to try the natural remedy suggested but where does one find Borax in a small Thai town? Any suggestions Ted?

Thanks. Kelle


EC: Hi Kelle: Check the Borax page: http://www.earthclinic.com/remedies/borax.html -- at the end of the section there are "Where to Find" posts. None mention Thailand, but might give you a clue where to find it.

On the same page you will see the follow post from Ted:

Ted from Bangkok, Thailand writes: "Most borax I buy is a B.P. grade and a U.S.P. grade borax from a chemical supplier. Those are grade are often used that are pharmaceutical grade. However, those that are gotten from natural sources (e.g. borax) and go relatively unprocessed, that is unadded of additives or anything are often labeled 100% Sodium tetraborate or Borax. Without anything else."

Boric Acid/Mange. I use the boric acid treatment on my dog, but when I sprayed him with it, it looked like he this treatment was burning. Is this normal?


EC: Ted's instructions call specifically for borax, not boric acid!

Posted by Misty (San Diego, Ca) on 09/13/2009

[NAY]  I used the exact measurements Ted recommended and the problem did not go away at all. So I take my dog to the vet and tell them exactly what I used on her. The vet told me that had I continued any longer than I had, not only could I have given my dog liver damage, but I could have KILLED her. Borax is toxic as most of these other treatments are. It's even caused humans to get sick, although not lethal to us.

[YEA]  ted's mange remedy: i have a a shih tzu pupppy named baby beyonce, she is now 11 month old. its my first time to have one so i really make sure that we always visit the vet and do the grooming regularly.. everything is well, she completed her vaccines and boosters but when she reaches his 9th month i noticed that she feels itchiness since he have a long hair its hard for me see the skin beneath.. but then i noticed that it was turning darker pink.. i bring her to the vet and the vet injected for anti-mange, give her cefalexin and antihistamines.. after a week beyonce was back to normal without redness and itchiness but after a month again she started to scratch her head and then her head started to have like crust/dundruff like appearance then it started to have wounds in it.. i bring her to the vet,, the vet scraped the woulds and cut her hair very short then put dog collar to prevent her from further scratching her head.. the vet injected anti mange again then give 3 topical creams.. at first it works but after a couple of days the itchiness become worse until my baby face started to be red.. i was so worried cause her appetite is now affected and she doesnt like to play anymore, i was so desperate that i dont trust the vets anymore and look for remedy myself online.. then find this website and read about ted's hydrogen peroxide and borax mixture. i just done it yesterday and im already seeing improvements. she doesnt scratch anymore and she started to gain her appetite again. i love my baby beyonce and hoping that she will recover as soon as possible.. :)
