Just wanted to tell Ted his remedy for dog mange is a lifesaver. To date I have spent over $139.00 on various creams/lotions/etc. None of them worked except the tar shampoo bought at a local pet store. However, when I used Ted's mange cure he recommended , "mix a 1% hydrogen peroxide solution with water and add borax", for the first time in weeks, my dog is playful, and not constantly biting and scratching himself. I have only used this one time too. I plan to use it every week, till his hair grows back, and has his beautiful coat once again. thank you again Ted, and Earth clinic.
I have a few questions for TED or anyone who can provide answers/experience.
I have been trying the Mange Cure for aprox 2.5 weeks. Our puppy has had mange, treated with Mitaban dip (8 of em) and at the final dip follow up there were still live mites. Her hair stayed thin on the top of her head then one stressful day she had a breakout. I tried the good win ol and still no improvement. I came across this site and did the H2O2 1 cup, 2 cups water and 3-4 tbsp Borax solution 4 days in a row since she progressed so fast into elephant skin on her neck. I had noticed that the solution was stinging my arms so I switched to the ACV with Mother 1 cup, 2 cups water and 3-4 tbsp mixture and after 1 week of H2O2 treatment and 1 week of ACV treatment the pustules are no longer pussy, but still bumpy. I let her air dry, and at times will even spray the solution on problem areas between baths.
Some of them are filled with blood instead of puss. Is that normal?
There is minor hair re-growth happening on her head and neck, but my boyfriend is rather dissapointed that she has relapsed after such expensive vet treatment (mitaban) and is wondering if she will ever recover fully.
How long does it typically take for a large localized (head/neck, 50% hocks, and armpits) case to heal? Since this is my first time using this treatment I don't have an answer for him and am trying to vie for more time to prove this treatment works. Otherwise... you know what most vets suggest for cases that relaps so quickly and vigorously... If I can prove this works I need to stand by a time line.
Also, She is heavily scratching her ears and shaking her head. Is there anything I can do to help her stop being so itchy in her ears?
To help her from the inside I am giving her one garlic tablet in the morning, 2-3 tsp ACV in her drinking water with a parasite tincture (10-20 drops), salmon oil in her kibble (Innova high protein), and just started with sulfur homeopathic pearls. If she is particularly itchy I give her a 25mg benadryl.
I am really trying and need to know if I am doing the right thing, if I need to modify something.
I tried to put a cone on her to stop the itching or licking and that stressed her out way too much. She ran into the wall and eventually just froze. Since stress is a big trigger I will not be doing that again...
Your advice and all the comments have been wonderful, but now that I am sort of fighting for her life, I want to make sure that I am doing everything possible to help her get through this and live a happy and healthy life.

I tried TED'S REMEDY FOR MANGE CURE. I used the 500ml of hydrogen peroxide and 1000ml water then 3 scoops (2-3 tablespoon per scoop)of Borax (MULE brand) and poured it slowly on my 2 labradors after their normal bath, Ange (Angelina Jolie) and Brad (Brad Pitt), my kids named the labs. I do this once a week but I give their normal bath after 2-3 days using a commercial shampoo for mange cure as well. Ted's remedy really works. I already used his remedy for 3 weeks (once a week) now and my 4 month old labs are really getting better. Their hair are growing back slowly but surely. Once totally cured, I will send you their before and after photos. PLEASE USE THIS REMEDY, IT REALLY WORKS! Thanks, TED!
EC: Thank you -- we'd love to post your photos!

I used 1 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide, 2 cups of warm water and 3 tablespoons of borax. I cannot believe that my 9 1/2-year old Lhasa Apso is sleeping comfortably right here in front of my. Charlie has been itching himself like crazy which has caused him to bleed. I thought that his flea medication wasn't working and that he was reacting to flea bites but luckily my girlfriend mentioned mange the other day and then today it dawned on me that his black spots were actually spreading, that, oh, my goodness, Charlie has mange!!Like many others on this site, I have already spent $1,600 on trying to cure my dog of demodicosis (mites) possible food allergies, possible flea allergies, and a possible dermatitis with various medications, none of which are good for dogs in trying to cure the sweet little guy. Charlie is already on good dog food and I add Omega 3 oil to his food and another very nutritional supplement powder which is why I think he has had such a quick and fantastic reaction with only one treatment of the borax, hydrogen peroxide and water solution. I am so very, very grateful for this website. Charlie and I thank you both and to everyone else who posted their results.

Can you please send me a picture of the borax and h2o2 solution?
I bought the Borax at a Billiard's Store because I cannot find one in any of the supermarket's laundry and detergent sections and I used the 3% h2o2 solution.
I mixed 300 ml 3% h2o2 with 600 ml warm water then I carefully added the borax. The solution was milky white but there were a lot of borax lumps on the surface. Is this normal?
I dipped my puppy, Calyx, on this solution and he seemed to be doing just fine.
Your answer would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, I suspect my dog has mange, so I started to read about it and came across with this site, I love all the positive feedback about this remedy and I am serously considering to apply it to my dog. I just have a few questions.
1.I have read that thera are 3 types of mange ( Demodectic Mange, Cheyletiella mange, Sarcoptic mange) I am not sure wich type my dog has, so my question is: Does this remedy cure all 3 types of mange?
2. My dog is old (9 years) is it safe to use this remedy on him?
I love my dog and I hope this can be the cure to his mange. THANK U anticipatedly for the help you all can give me in this matter.

After spending nearly $2,200 over the last five months, our fifteen month old German Shepherd (Dirk Reilly) had been diagnosed with just about everything: fleas, food allergies, seasonal allergies, bacterial infection, and now finally sarcoptic mange. The original one patch of missing fur was only about one inch in diameter when we first started treating him. Over time the one patch became two patches and eventually spread to his ears, tail, hips, and even an identical matching patch on the right side by his ribs. We had listened to everything the Veterinarian requested that we do, but nothing had seemed to work for Dirk. Knowing that he had highly sensitive skin, our local pet store suggest we begin adding salmon oil to his food daily throughout all the treatments. The salmon oil definitely made a difference, but Dirk was still scratching and biting. At our most recent visit to the Veterinarian, Dirk was prescribed (yet another) antibiotic along with three additional topical treatments for the sarcoptic mange. As frustration set in with yet another set of prescriptions, we decided to see if there were any other options for treating sarcoptic mange. After reading ALL of the feedback on Ted's solution, with much hesitation, we decided to try the solution on Dirk's sensitive skin. We used 1 cup of three percent hydrogen peroxide, added to two cups of warm water, and then mixed in three heaping tablespoons of borax. After bathing Dirk with a medicated Oatmeal (yummy smelling!) shampoo, we sprayed his entire body with the solution. Not wanting him to lick any of the solution off, we took him over to the park to let him run around and air dry. The next day, we noticed that all of the spots Dirk had lost his fur in now appeared to be extremely red and irritated. (sigh) Not knowing if we should continue to use the treatment because of the irritation, we made the decision to continue for one week, spraying him every other day and using the salmon oil consistently. It has been one week and we cannot believe how much of a difference the solution has made for Dirk - his fur has already started to grow back! Granted, he still has one more topical treatment to use, but we are completely convinced that Ted's solution has made a HUGE difference in treating Dirk. For anyone who is treating their dog for mange, we highly recommend using Ted's solution! We cannot thank you enough for making this information along with the feedback public.

My 9 year old peke was diagnosed with cysts in his prostate and the vet recommended we neuter him, he was on Marbocyl for 3 almost 3 months from November 2008.
In Jan this year i noticed he had a ear infection omething he never had before, in addition he was loosing fur around his eyes and mouth and the skin was reddish and he was itching the vet said he had ringworm and gave him a vaccine,since the ear did not get better i took him to another vet who said it was a simple ear infection 3 weeks later i took him back and then the vet siad he had ringworm and prescribed intrafungol and a shampoo called micohex hich has miconazole nitrate and chlorhexidine gluconate. i used the shampoo once and then tok my dog back for a stool, urine, blood and skin test
The stool test said he had flotation mites and demodex
The skin test showed demodex present
Please find below report from the vet
''A summary of the abnormal results is as followsCheyletiella and Demodex mites seen in the fecal sample.Bacteria see in the urine sample - which was a voided sample collected from the floor. My advise subject to Dr Sandras approval is1/ Treat Trouble with Frontline/Protektor spray to eliminate Cheyletiella mites2/ Skin scrape the areas behind the ears to look for Demodex mites3/ Collect a urine sample by cystocentesis for urine culture to see if the bacteria are in the bladder or whether they were from the floor, sheath, urethra or prostate. There is no indeciation of renal disease at thsi time I am pleased to be able to reassure you''
I have stopped all their antibiotics the second ear has started an yeast infection
i have put my dog on a complete meat an chicken with brown rice and flax seed oil with grapeseed oil diet .
In additon he has APCV in his drinking water and twice a day i mis one capful of ACV with another capful of APCV and dap the infected areas, the redness seems to be drying up

I have just finished giving my 8 month old terrier-mix puppy his 4th bath, using Ted's Demodex Mange Cure (peroxide/borax rinse after shampooing)..it has worked wonders on our little guy! He had been on Ivermectin and a multitude of medicated shampoos, and nothing was working..he smelled so bad we could hardly stand to hold him, even right after a bath..the vet said he might always have this condition...well, Ted's Remedy proved him wrong! We noticed immediate improvement after the first bath, more after the second, and he appears to be completely well of it after this forth bath, but I will keep on it for a bit longer, just to be completely sure. I used 1 cup of 3% hydrogen peroxide, added to 2 cups of warm water, mixed in 3 heaping tablespoons of borax (bought at local supermarket) and, after shampooing with a good medicated dog shampoo and rinsing thoroughly, I applied the borax/peroxide/water rinse over the entire body of dog, making sure not to get any into his eyes, nose, mouth or ears, and then LET THE DOG DRY NATURALLY..per Ted's instructions, I did not rinse the borax mixture off the dog, nor did I dry him with a towel, but let dry in the warm bathroom. He no longer smells, no longer itches, and his fur is beginning to look so much better. This was a miracle-cure for our pup..and I can't thank Ted enough for making it available to the public. Many thanks, Ted.

My 2 1/2 year old great dane developed demodectic mange after an illness. She was placed on very expensive meds, prescription dog food and IV injections to boost her immune system. We spent a FORTUNE, the dog got better but a several months later she had an upper respiratory infection and the mange returned. Frustrated and running out of money I found your website and the peroxide/borax treatment for mange. WOW! It worked like a charm. The mange cleared up much faster than it did the first time on all of the expensive medications. She is doing great! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!!!!

Micki is a beautiful male miniature dachshund who's breeding career was over before it began due to several patches of demodex mites. The patches were small, but none the less annoying and heartbreaking! When first diagnosed, my vet prescribed Goodwinal Ointment, which seemed benign but still had some ingredients I felt less good about using, so I found Ted's remedy and began using it. I mixed the borax and hydrogen peroxide exactly as specified on this web site, and within a few weeks all his hair loss was gone and his coat is like black velvet ever since. Because of loving in Florida, I use this solution every 2 weeks in the warm months to help keep fleas and ticks at bay as well, since it kills off their eggs.
I have a friend who now has a female mini dachshund who had lost all her hair due to this same mite and I am going to help her treat her dog with Ted's remedy. We will take before and after pictures and hopefully be able to post them here. I also have before and after pictures of Micki and would love to share them.
Thanks Ted's Remedy!
From a happy Micki.

Mange treatment - Borax, Hydrogen Peroxide and Water
My Dog recently contracted mange and was suffering badly after only a few weeks. It broke my heart to see her in that condition, and taking her to the vet would cost more then I could afford. I tried researching treatments that could be made and given at home (she becomes so traumatized when away from home)
After finding no recomendations other then antibiotic (which can destroy the G.I. system of any animal) I was lost... until I found your site.
I read, and read, and read; gaining a new sense of hope for my sweetheart. I found the mange remedy, and mentioned it to a local vet.
WELL, I knew I was on the right track when he freaked out, border line yelling, saying that "it was a ridiculus idea, get her on antibiotics now, dont waste your time!" and i knew this would work because he never once said it wouldn't work... just to do it his way (no crazy mark-up and bills to hand out... I don't blame him I guess)
I have taken before pictures... and when finished the applications and treatment, will post after ones as well (she is such a gorgous dog... can't wait to see her again with all of her hair)
Thanks, in advance, for this site; the greatest tool in helping our little family members :)

I came across this site while searching for mange cures other than ivermectin for "Bonnie" an APBT that we had rescued. I tried the ivermectin from the vet for about 1 month and did not see much improvement.She started getting the mange when she was about 5 months old. Ted's remedy seems to be helping and her hair is growing back though it has been a few months. I did not realize I should be treating the back yard, inside rugs, etc. We also have an adopted bull mastiff who is 2 and our old dachsund who is 14. They don't seem to be bothered by the mites. I wash their bedding weekly and now include the borax in the wash. I want to make sure I am eliminating/controlling the source for Bonnie so she can recover. The vet also said I could give her 1 benydryl (25mg) twice daily to help with the itching. It seems to help. I'm hoping her immune system kicks in soon and can help her control the mites.

My 9 year old Australian Shepherd came down with Demodectic Mange on her face 3 months ago. My vet recommended a shampoo containing Benzoyl Peroxide. After 2 weeks of using this shampoo I did not see any obvious results. My vet wanted to try using a broad spectrum anti-parsite medication such as ivermectin but I decided against using this type of treatment. I found Ted's remedy on the internet and decided to try it and saw results in about 2 weeks. I mixed 2 tsp. of Borax in 1/2 cup of hot water and added 1/4 cup of hydrogen peroxide and followed Ted's instructions on applying it. It's been about 3 months since I started this treatment and can not longer see any signs of demodectic mange. I would say YEA to this treatment.
