I HAVE BATHED MY PICKPOO FOUR TIMES IN HYDROGEN PEROXIDE 2 PARTS WATER AND I PART PEROXIDE WITH BORAX TO SAT. POINT. MY DOG HAS STOPPED SCRATCHING AND SOME OF HIS HAIR IS FALLING OFF AT INFESTION POINTS .DOES THIS SEEM NATURAL AND DOES THIS MEAN THAT HE IS BEING RID OF THE INFECTION? I AM ALSO PUTTING 1/2 TEASPOON OF BORAX PER LITER OF WATER. HOW LONG SHOULD I KEEP UP THIS TREATMENT. SHOULD I RUB HIM DOWN WITH CASTER OIL WHEN HE IS DRY? FRANK

Frank, I use a mix of baby oil, blue Listerine (cheap) and water 1/3 parts each to make the fur soft and keep my dog from itching. I also had another spray bottle with apple cider vinegar in it that I sprayed the beds with as well as the toys and any place they laid around a lot. The Listerine mixture helped to keep bugs off of them, also, when outside.

[YEA]  For about a month:

1. I used the Borax, peroxide & water, per Ted's directions, to fix the worst part of mange, spritzing my thick-furred keeshond-collie mix every three days.
2. I also gave him a weekly bath using Neem animal shampoo. Immediate normal skin coloring returned.
3. I fed him a daily dish of yogurt mixed with a spoonful of immune-fixing Spirulina. He was very sick before, inundated by the mange and not eating much. Within two days of Spirulina he left his favorite spot and joined us at activities.
4. I also spread a powdery mix of borax & diatamaceous earth all over the house for about a month, rather appreciating the spread being blown around by the ducts and ignoring the messy house look. This dried up all flea activity. And Finally...the healing:
5. Last week, I bought another spritz bottle, some non-scented hypo-allergenic baby oil (a cheap kind) and a blue bottle of Lysterine, original. Mix 1/3 water, 1/3 baby oil, 1/3 lysterine. The lysterine will not hurt, even the sores. It soothes and disinfects! I rubbed it in real good, giving a massage over the many many scales & little bumps and sores. My Rusty stretched into the pretend-scratching of his itches, loving it! It was nearly 5 hours before he scratched himself and bit into himself, so I gave him another spritz, rubbing it in.

Now I only spritz him with the baby oil mix every few days, when he 'points' to it. Then he frolicks all over, too energetic for the cat, so I let him out and he rolls in the snow to remove the smell, tossing snow into the air with his nose, wagging away. His horrible self-mangling has stopped. The bumps are nearly all gone. He rests & sleeps comfortably. He's much happier and so are the non-furred members of this group!!

A number of you had mentioned you "sprayed" the solution on your dog and/or its bedding. What kind of sprayer are you using. The solution clogs every sprayer i have tried? Thanks.

I use a plastic bottle bought at Wal Mart. If you're using the borax solution try this first. Dissolve the borax in the the peroxide before diluting it. You may still end up with some settlement. Then, use cheese cloth or a strainer.

If you are using the lysterine, water, and baby oil solution you shouldn't be having a problem with the spritzer.

I'm thinking it was the borax solution that you were having problems with. Sorry it took so long to respond.

I have been reading your solutions for mange and not one of these solutions says how to control and help with mange around the eyes. I know you shouldn't use any of the solutions this close to the eye. My dog has been suffering from mange for a long time, it has never completely went away and her eyes stay bald and slightly swollen. Do you have any suggestions on this?

[YEA]   Hi: When I treated my dogs with Ted's cure it dripped all around their eyes. No problems and worked like a charm. If you are worried, just apply with a cloth to control for dripping. The borax wont hurt the eyes. At least it did not hurt my dog's and I just did it the other day. Good luck. Mary

Posted by JScottv (Atlanta, Georgia) on 01/13/2009

[YEA]  I used Ted's treatment. One bottle of Hydrogen peroxide mixed with two bottles of water and added Borax until it would not longer dissolve.

I washed my dog in this and let it dry naturally. The next morning I rubbed all affected areas with Castor Oil. I did this about every 3 or 4 days for two weeks. (4 washes)

My dog was fully cleared and healing. He now is completely restored and shows no signs of Mange.

There was zero ill effects. Amazing!

[YEA]  Ted I want to THANK YOU for your Borax and Hydrogen cure for mites. My dog Sam got the mites at the vets office after getting neutered.It was about two to three weeks after coming home that we noticed his intense itching and biting. Looked up symptoms on the internet and came across your site. What a blessing.It took just about two months to cure.My dog looked like a bleached blond with a bad perm. At times I didn't think he would ever get rid of those pests. One thing with Sam was after the Borax and Hydrogen bath. Leaving it on to dry. He would get the trembles each time we applied it. They lasted several hours. We also had to make him wear a cone around his neck so that he wouldn't lick it all off.If you have a licker get yourself a cone so that the solution can dry. Got the cone at Pet Smart.One thing we did was reinforce the cone with duct tape. This made it last longer. Also started giving him vitamins that I got at Walmart. Plus Brewer's Yeast with garlic also by(Pro-Pet). He is healthy and shinny and happy now.Don't give up keep treating. Also I am still putting Borax in his water. Ted can you continue to use Borax in water? All the time or should you stop at some point. My suggestion if you have a longed haired dog would be to shave all his hair off because the solution causes the hair to get burnt just like a bad perm. Hang in there it works!

If a dog is losing hair and there is a smell is that an indication of mange? My dad's scottie really smells and is losing hair. Also, he is very oily. Have to give him a bath every week just to combat the oil and the smell.

In my experience those symptoms are indicative of a bad diet and vitamin or mineral deficiency. Try a high quality dog food with added human food and the dog should improve within a week.

against my better judgement (ted censor if you want) i am going to write about an old-time treatment for mange that worked on a stray dog that was dying from mange and nothing the vet did helped at all.

we had an old man on the property that had worked for my dad for 30 years and he said he could cure the dog. now we were at our wits end with this dog and had already spent hundred of dollars and the dog had lost pretty much all her fur and much weight (she was like this when we found her) and had even pus filled places where she had scratched and the vet gave up and said we would have to put her to sleep if she didn't get better. she got the highest grade dog food and supplements, VCO - and i had tried the ACV and white vinegar treatment - but the mange (or mites) were too deeply embedded in her skin.

well what the man did did was to pour used motor oil on the dog and rub it into her skin. of course she hated this but she let him do it and almost immediately you could tell she was feeling better.

in just a few days she was walking around and eating and he only did this once - he left it on - and said to let it 'wear' off and it wore off eventually. but let me tell you - this dogs fur grew back - she gained weight AND her mange totally disappeared and the dog went on to have a happy life and never have mange again.

he told me it has to be 'used' motor oil. when the vet saw her recovery he was amazed - but when i told her what had helped her - he was appalled. but at least she recovered and did not have to be put to sleep.

drastic measure - but it works if nothing else will.

btw the old man told me that every time he had done this the dog recovered with no ill side effects.

The smell is very indicative of mange. That is what gave away our pup that we found in an alley. He had a horrible smell and I thought he was just dirty from living on his own. As soon as one of my friends saw him, she said she hated to tell me but my dog had the mange. After visiting the vet, he indeed does. I was given the "dip" but it's so horrible that I'm trying the borax and hydrogen peroxide. He is getting more spots and has had 4 treatments. Do they get worse before they get better?

[YEA]   I am sorry I certainly didn't mean for my comment to be a NAY. I was commenting on the smell could be mange to someone else. Then got caught up in my little Ruff's problems. I took him in at about 10 wks old. I took him for his shots and a check up and the vet said he had scarcoptic (sp?) mange. He was put on medicine and by the time he went back for his second set of shots he was cured of it. Then in Dec. when I take him for his neutering the vet calls for me to come pick him up that he was ready to go but she needed to talk with me. She had done some scrapings and he had demodectic mange. She gave me vitamins, shampoo and the "dip" for him. I was to use it once a week. (all the instructions were included). However, it was so horrible I thought there was no way I was going to make him take baths in this. I began my search for natural remedies. I had not read far enough apparently cause I was only bathing him once a week. He is a bit of a wild pup (almost 8 mo) and growls and tries to bite me when I bathe him. He is a handful. My older dog will go get into the bathtub trying to showing him it's no big deal. He seems afraid of water and I have no doubt that he may have been doused with hot water before I found him by people trying to run him off.

Recently my husband and I bought a truckload of straw and put it all over our front yard trying to old down the mud the dogs were tracking inside. Then, I notice Ruff is getting more spots...and sores on his privates and the mite pimples are all over him. I have been using the borax/H20/Peroxide but only once a week. I have a solution mixed that I put on him two or three times a day by gloved hand. Should this still be helping him out? He is on a yeast/garlic pills as well as a vitamin. He eats two to three times a day so he has a good appetite. He has been wormed and I do my best to give him all the love he can handle. He is house broken and it was really easy as he went out with his "big sister". She btw has remaind mange free throughout all this. *fingers crossed* Ruff had a poor beginning and probably has a poor immune system. The vet said stress can cause this to worsen and he stresses about taking a bath. How can I get him well when I can barely bathe him once a week? Also, I spent all day yesterday raking up the straw after I read it can give dogs mange. Then, I scatted borax all over the yard.

He is getting more and more spots of hair loss (black in these spots..not the skin just the hair color) The sores/pimples worry me most. I just feel so sorry for him. I am ready to try the dip again but don't want to. I just want him well. I have been reading this site for three weeks and he's had 3 baths with the solution. I did see some improvement but now he is worsening...straw probably didn't help.

I spray his bed area, wash his toys and covers and spray the carpets as well as shampoo them. I suppose I need someone to tell me how to get the solution on him daily without a fight. During the summer it was easy I just bathed him where he stood outside but it's way to cold to do that now and he knows what is up when he sees me gathering his towels and heading toward the bath area I use to bathe him in. Then it's a chase to catch him, put up with his trying to bite me. (Once I do have him in the tub, he is calm and the best puppy. I talk soothingly to him to assure him he is ok.) What else can I do? I apologize for this being so long. And Yea to this remedy. I am all for natural remedies and always have been. I am thankful this site is here!

This is concerning Diana's remedy that the old man used. My parents always used old motor oil to cure our pet dogs when we were young. I was going to and may yet, but when I questioned a man at the Pet Store about it his response was that the motor oil of today is not the same as the olden days. He said if the dog licks it off if could damage the lungs and other body parts. So, I was scared away from this remedy. How did you keep your dog from licking the motor oil off? Ruff licks the solution and everything I put on him off. I try to sit with him to prevent this but he is one stubborn dog. The nearest Pet Store is over an hour away and I can only imagine what it would be like trying to get him to wear a cone. :D Also, did the old man just dab it on the spots. Ruff's problems are his entire underbelly, all four legs-inside/out, and under his neck. He is now developing spots all over (generalized for sure). Help me out here, I may end up trying this since it's so hard to bathe him.

EC: We've seen many warnings about using motor oil for mange. Here's one:

"Please don't use motor oil. It is extremely toxic, and will cause liver damage/failure." http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=1006060225324

Thanks, I can't really see me using motor oil. I would go back to the mitaban dip first and I really, really hate having to do that. If I could only bathe him daily it would help. They just move to a new place it seems. He is digging today and now that my family is home from work I can get some help giving him a bath. I just dread it as much as he does. I did fix up a used bottle of peroxide (solution) and put it on his places throughout the day hoping this would help. However, I just keep seeing new places showing up. I did see an improvement of his underbelly sores (pimples~ that's putting it lightly) after one day of applying the solution. But the darn things keep popping up somewhere else on him. I keep him inside with my almost 4 year old and she is doing fine...no mange. I think she had a better start in life. You can check them out at http://www.doggyspace.com/profile/6082

I've posted some pix of him when I first got him. He is part of my family and I just want him well.

This is just a comment to follow-up on the motor oil treatment for mange in dogs. When I was in the South many years ago, the standard 'country' folk treatment for mange in dogs was to cover them in creosote. I'm sure the effect was similar to the motor oil, but have no idea about the toxic effects - just know that it worked.

The motor oil works because it smothers the mites where they live. (Google them and you'll see how they stick their head down inside a hair follicle and their butts stick out so they can breathe. ) If you coat the butt with oil they die. You can use any oil. I wouldn' t use castor oil. But you could even use crisco or lard, although they woud prolly lick it off. (elizabethan collar?) I imagine they used motor oil because it was unlikely they would lick it off. I don't remember our dog EVER licking that junk off. My dad used motor oil (new) and flowers of sulfur. Just use vaseline. And don't let them lick.

[YEA]  My dog, Lucy, has had mange for a couple of months. I didn't know it was mange till just about a week ago. I was going to bring her to the vet on Monday but I happened to stumble upon Ted's cure. I immediatly went and got the ingredients and followed the instuctions last night. Just over night I saw improvements. She's not scratching like mad and she is acting so happy...like it doesn't bother her so much. i'll keep applying every week and keep posted on her progress. Is there anything that I can rub on her to help her itching...like cooking oil? I want to help her as much as possible, but I dont want to mess with the borax solution on her.

I HAVEN'T TRIED THE MANGE TREATMENT YET BUT I PLAN TOO. ANOTHER WAY YOU CAN HELP THE DOG WITH THE ITCHES THOUGH IS TO GIVE THE DOG BENADRYL. GENERIC BENADRYL WILL DO, I BUY A 100 BOTTLE FROM WALMART AND GIVE MY DOG A TABLET EVERY 4 HOURS. MY VET ADVISED ME TO DO THIS. IT HELPS WITH THE ITCHING THAT THE DOG EXPERIENCES AND IS NOT HARMFUL TO THE DOG. ""BUT DON'T GIVE THE DOG MORE THAN 25MG AT A TIME, THEN IT BECOMES DANGEROUS".

HOPE THIS HELPS

Benedryl has been shown to cause premature dementia (not that dementia is a normal part of aging). I wouldn't say it is not harmless. I don't recommend anyone take it on a regular basis. I read this in a report about 10 years ago. I can't believe this information is still not mainstream and so many people are still using it.

After reading all of the positive responses pertaining to a borax/hydrogen peroxide solution for demodectic mange in dogs i had to find out what borax actually was. Ck for yourself, turns out it is really nothing more than a type of salt that forms naturally out in the west, texas or someplace. It is used in cooking and other things. Since mites along with roaches and many other insects have an exoskeleton what i believe the borax/salt does is dry them up to the point of death. kind of like a human dying of dehydration with an endoskeleton, just backwards, from the outside in instead of the inside out. So assuming that i understand all of these things correctly i would think that if you lived near the salt water and you took your dog swimming everyday and didn't rinse him off you could get rid of the mange. Ive heard people say this before.Theoretical of course. When people say that it made their dogs condition worse the only thing that makes sense is that the salt must have dried out the skin, causing severe itching, that makes sense also. To my knowledge hydrogen perxide can't really hurt you. I gargle with it when i have a cold. Dandruff shampoo w/ sulfer makes sense to. Head and shoulders extreme, and why not just leave the shampoo on the dog. Can't be that bad or the FDA wouldn't let humans use it and definetely not as harsh as the 70% sulfer solutions sold at feed stores.I currently believe that my three Boston Terriers have contracted mange and this is the route I'm going. Tried the acne cream with 10% benzoyl peroxide and it seems to be helping as a spot treatment in only 2 days. Some sites say demodectic mange is not contageous but i don't believe it, just not contageous to humans. I'll keep everyone posted on my results.

[YEA]  My lab/chow mix, who is just over a year, has had a horrible skin condition. Every vet has passed it off as allergies and nothing else. Well when the sores started to get worse and he cried constantly, I knew it was something else. I started researching and found the Peroxide/Borax mixture. I just free handed the measurement but within a few hours I noticed he wasn't waking up every few minutes to chew and scratch. I can tell he is happier too, which makes me just as happy. This website is absolutely fantastic and I am so glad I found it. Thanks to everyone who has posted or left feedback, it is amazing how helpful it all is! Thanks again!

I am writing about Ted's Borax and Hydrogen Peroxide mange cure to treat demodectic mange in dogs. I hope I am posting this question in the correct place. I need to be certain I have the recipe and procedure right. The vet confirmed demodex with a scraping and performed one Mitaban dip. The dip was so toxic to our 3-month old, pug-chihuahua mix -- she didn't move from her bed for two days -- that I sought out alternatives and arrived at the Ted's cure site.

I have tried the treatment 4 times: two days in a row, skip a day, treat, skip a day, and treat. There has been some improvement in hair regrowth on her head -- new stubble has appeared! -- but her face and scalp are still scaly. Every day I read more posts and have adjusted my procedure, but before my husband insists on another Mitaban dip I would like to be certain I am performing the therapy correctly.

I mix 2 cups hydrogen peroxide with 4 cups water and add 2 handfuls of borax powder -- not measured precisely but about 1/4 cup ("20 Mule Team" brand). I am going to start waiting 15 minutes for the borax to fully dissolve -- something I just learned from reading a past post. I start pouring the solution on my puppy and begin to rub it into the skin -- like I was washing her if there were suds. Pour -- rub -- pour -- rub, for about 5 minutes. The first two treatments I was timid around her face, but now I really rub her closed eyes, inside the wrinkles, ears etc. I then give her a treat and stay with her in the shower for another 5 minutes. I just started rubbing a small amount of dry borax powder on her while she was still wet. I then let her out and keep her on a towel or in her crate until she is dry enough to play with the family. I am going to start doing the treatment every day instead of every-other-day. I haven't shampooed her with any another products -- just the borax wash. I am now giving her a high quality food and am going to research supplemental vitamins.

Am I doing everything correctly enough to tell my husband, "Have patience! This will work -- give it time."? I appreciate any response and greatly respect your commitment to this site.

To Jennifer in Dallas:

I had an earlier post about a stray dog that showed up here positively eaten up with the mange. I have not had to seek veterinary advice. I've used the borax/peroxide dip on this dog and he is now beautiful! I have five other dogs and have had to bathe them also to prevent them from getting it. I was bathing very often at first but quickly settled to once a week. It has taken about three months to get him completely over this but the solution works. He had NO hair over most of his body and many areas were raw and bleeding. I was using 4 cups of peroxide, 8 cups of water, and about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of borax. Mix the borax in until it won't dissolve any more. You can pour up some in a spray bottle to use on itchy places between bathing and I've sprayed bedding, floors, etc with it. Seems as if the dog would itch worse a couple of days after bath but each week he would look better. He now has hair everywhere totally except a couple of areas on his ears but this has healed and is slowly growing hair. I can't begin to tell you how bad this dog was and now he is a happy playful pup.... obviously feels so much better. It didn't happen overnight though.... it took persistence and he slowly improved. A couple of times I was frustrated and thought he was getting worse (especially if I didn't bathe every week--skipped the hurricane week and that wasn't a good idea) but he looks so good now and it's been three weeks since the last bath. The peroxide will bleach out hair color though and I think it dries the skin... one of the reasons I went to only once a week baths. Good luck. I've heard so many bad things about the mitaban and I've seen such good results with this.

[YEA]  My dog has been suffering(scratching and biting)for about 3 months now. I was not sure if it was a food allergy or a pest problem. Recently he began developing lesions. I did try the ivermectin, but with nothing positive to report. just alot of extra money spent. He is doing much better on the Ted's formula with much less scratching and a reduced redness. This is with one treatment. Thanks for the information.

Where did you purchase your borax?

Posted by Marsha (Anaheim, U.S. Calif Orange County) on 11/11/2008

[YEA]  After doing everything I possibly could to help rid my 9 yr old sweetheart of a dog of his itch I came upon the remedy of peroxide, water and Borax. I used if only 3 times and have seen 100% improvement on Sebastian. I was finally of the impression it was not so much fleas as it was mites though the vet thinks over wise. In addition to the peroxide remedy I also put oils/bacon grease, (which was used on horses for wounds) olive oil etc. anything greasy on the scabs to help kill mites as well.

I want to share that I also did the Diamaceious earth treatment outside and the Borax on the carpets inside as well as washing his bedding every few days.

It is a complete treatment for the area and would recommend it for anyone plagued by these persistent and dreadful creatures that wreak havoc on our pet unable to help themselves.

I used popular flea killing products on another younger dog and consider it a waste of $50, time and can not justify the toxicity of such products. Do your homework people......natural is best for your beloved pets. Good luck. Marsha
