[YEA]  Borox Mange cure, Just wanted to say that it really works my puppy boxer girl has almost all her hair back after a month of treatments with borox and peroxide .I have spent numerous amounts of money on veternary cures which only offered temporary relief and made her quite sick at times, Saw Teds cure and figured what did I have to lose .I gave it a try and the very first day the smell of rotting skin was gone. Continued bathing every day for two weeks and saw hair growing back on hind legs and stomach no more itching or bad odor .I also added 1/8 teaspoon of Borox to drinking water . Made a spray bottle of solution and sprayed entire house and yard . Will keep doing every week until I am sure there is no more mange .Ted I also saw some dead fleas in the tub water after baths. I think I might change my vet because he was sure the dog did not have fleas and that It had to be seasonal allergies ,Poor puppy suffered for months and became bald with crusty scabs and bloody sores all over her. Thank you so much for this remarkable cure My baby girl Bailey is on her way to being beautiful again

Yes, the fleas are sometimes carrier of the demodectic mites which causes mange too. The borax and peroxide will kill fleas, mites and mange. In human we sometimes call the mange a lupus, when it might be only just demodectic mites in humans and the human remedy is a cruel one, which uses chemotherapy and in one case of lupus I have seen had just died from chemotherapy. The borax and peroxide also works well if infection get to human also.

One key treatment in mange is that of quarantine if mange do get back it is the reinfection from the yard. A borax and peroxide is needed to be sprayed fairly frequently in the house area and if unsuccessful, the dog should be quarantined in a secure area to prevent such reinfection.

[YEA]  I just want to inform that reading the remedie to cure mange was a life saver. Someone gave me a 3 week kitten, we noticed that he had a large white area on his head,I search the internet to find out it was mange, I took him to the vet wich cost me $85.00 for the medicine and the test to find out he has scabies/mange. Doctor gave me the' medicine and directed me to keep the kitten away from the other animals and myself. when I got home from the vet i went on the internet and found this cure, I gave the kitten the vet medicine (which I will I have to give for a month) I gave the cat(with no name) the first bath, I kept given him a bath for a week everyday, also at this time I will take out everyday all the sheets and towels use by the cat, wash them with hot water, clean the room with clorex (the floor) take his food bowl& water bowl and clean it with clorox, disinfect his bed and evrything else in the room. I did this for 2 weeks everyday. I stop giving him the medicene the second day becuase the vet later on told me that he could die, because the medicine was too strong for a kitten. I also bought him speacial kitten milk. After 2 weeks of stress and giving him baths (everyday) and being tired I took him back to the vet to find out that he no longer has scabies. I was so happy and thankful this WORK. After he the vet told me he had no longer scabies we finally named him TAINO. THANK YOU SO MUCH>>>This was stressful but it worked.

EC: EvaMarie, we presume you are referring to Ted's Borax and Hydrogen Peroxide Remedy for Mange? Please correct us if you used another remedy.

[YEA]  Our great dane had a skin condition where he was losing hair and had a couple of sore spots. I found this site and thought I would try the "natural" cure. After less than two weeks of twice daily applications, all redness was gone and now after four weeks his hair looks as thick as ever. Thanks so much for your help with this problem.

[YEA]  Ted, First of all thank you for your wonderful mange remedy. It worked like a champ and saved us about $200.00. I would be interested to know if you have any suggestions for heartworm prevention besides the ones purchased from the vet? Thank you again!

[YEA]  My dog Serious had puppies this year in July. During the final weeks of her pregnancy she developed what appeared to be a combination of mange and earmites. Her coat was scaly, she had large and small red bumps all over her skin, she was loosing her hair and her ears were filled with a black oily substance plus she was loosing weight and just looking and smelling aweful. I wrote to Ted who told me to use his mange formula plus to give her magnesium to help her gain her normal PH balance.

Here's what I did. Topically I used Ted's mange formula once every 3 days. I put Serious on a 100% raw diet of raw ground beef mixed with magnesium, 1000 Vitamin C (Ester C), 1000iu of Vitamin E, 2 Burdock Root capsules (to cleanse her blood) and one clove of fresh raw garlic (chopped very fine). Plus, she got at least 2 to 4 hours of bright sunlight a day. She has made a full recovery just 2 weeks on the formula. I saw results immediately. All of her hair has grown back. The bumps have gone away. Her ears are completely clean and she has gained her body weight back. I hope you all find this helpful. Our pets are part of the family. God Bless!

[YEA]  borax and peroxide: "I got a cockapoo, Max, from the pound. After I cut through his matted hair, I noticed there were quite a few places that he had chewed raw. Thanks to you, Max does not stay up all night itching- I'm absolutely amazed!! Also, I'd suggest to the people who have a dog w/ really thick fur that you wash your dog, then while drying the dog with a hair dryer, you rub the thick paste down to the skin. Max thinks he's getting a salt rub at the doggy spa. It is not as messy as i though it would be & Max loves it! No more crusty bloody sores after only 3 treatments in 8 days. His hair's growing & he looks so beautiful everybody thinks he's a different dog.

[YEA]  Ted -' Your the greatest! The Borax and Peroxide worked beautifully on my Beagel mix for what I thought was mange. She had tiny red spots all over her stomach, inner thighs, chest, anterior neck and various other places. With thinning of her hair. I tried 1/2 cup 20 mule Borax + 500 cc 3% peroxide with 1000 cc H2O. The first "batch of solution , I used 3 table spoons of the borax with the same amount of the other ingredients and I didn't have great results. We adopted the 4.5 month old dog from a local pet shelter. She had distemper, hook worms and now mange. She seems to be recovering from the distemper, the first symptoms were 26 days ago. The hook worms were treated with Strongid de-wormer and they are gone as well. She has had 2 sets of vaccinations and scheduled for a third set next month. I am trying to boost her immune system through diet and rest. So far, I am giving her a good organic dry kibble (Nutro brand puppy chow with oat meal , chicken & rice) Also, one vit. E 400 I.U once a day, one raw egg each day and to help her put on weight 1/4 Can dog food (Nutro -Puppy). Do you have any suggestions regarding diet/supplements that could help boost her immune system. She seems to be doing very well. I have been sponging on the Borax solution every other day. How long will we need to continue this? Her skin looks 90% better..after only 3 treatments. We are trying to avoid the "neurology" phase of distemper. We have gone through the respiratory, gastrointestinal and now integumentary phases. I would like to keep her off of all vetinary prescribed medications and go 100% holistic. Anything you have to suggest will be considered. Thanks, for a great job!

[YEA]  Well I just wanted to say that I have a Golden lab 1 yr old. He has mang very bad. I Found your site and was reading the things on mange from Ted. Well I was at my wits end and went out last night and bought Borax and h2o2. Filled my bathtub up with water about 3 inches of water dump in a whole bottle of h202 and about 4 cups of Borax. My Harley loves to take baths so he jumped right in. I used a cup and just dumped the water all over him for about 20 minutes. Woke up this morning and my hubby said wow look at his hair growing back already. Thanks Ted I bathed him again today and am going to do another tonight. Then see how he looks in the morning. Hoping I can bath him everyother day after tommorrow but we will see. Figure the more baths he gets the better he will get and faster. And beleive you me he will get bathed with the Borax and h2o2 more often instead of with shampoo. Thanks again Ted. You are a blessing to all who have dogs with mange:

[YEA]  Just wanted to say what a wonderful remedy this has' been for us. I am a foster mother for abused and homeless dogs. They come and stay with me until they are well, socialized and gain weight and then move on to be adopted in permanent homes.
Three days ago we received an emaciated female Rottweiler that was so starved she could barely walk. She has awful sores on her legs and itching. This has become so severe that she has actually bitten off the pads on her feet. She was miserable.
I was looking for something to help comfort her and I ran on your article. We used the treatment early this morning and she came in and fell asleep like she had not sleep in forever. No itching and bitting. She just seems so relieved. She even got
up and walked on her own this afternoon., WOW. If I had not seen it I would not have believed it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dear Brent: Even though I developed the mange remedy myself after hundreds of trial and error, to this day I could not
believe it myself either! Thank you for the feedback!

Ted: I thought that I would update you on the Condition of Maggie our Rottweiler. She is doing better and better each day. She is starting to grow back hair. She of course still under weight, but her hair is looking great. The swelling is gone. Thanks for your advice on the internet.

Dear Brent: Happy to hear the hair growth is back, but the mange eggs tend to be around the premises, so light application of the solution of borax and peroxide in the floor area should prevent any infection. Weekly or twice monthly shampoo of borax and peroxide would prevent any mange for coming back. Best of all the remedy protects dogs against mites, fleas and other parasite infections, which is why this is not just for mange. It is most dramatically seen when treating with the mange.

[YEA]  My dog was spirally downward pretty quickly with demodex and it was pretty scary. The first time I tried the borax treatment it didn't work, probably because I didn't have the borax strong enough. I then took my dog to the vet and got a confirmation of demodex and the mitaban dip and the ivermectin orally. Two weeks after the trip there was virtually no change and she was losing hair in new places. I decided to try Ted's remedy again and mixed it up throughly this time. Within 2 days hair was growing back. It's been about 2 weeks now and almost all of the hair has grown back and she is a happy camper. I also started feeding her raw chicken and I give her a raw egg every day. Thank you so much for this remedy. I know it saved me hundreds of dollars in vet bills. Oh yeah, the mitaban dip made her very sick. When she is healthy she is very hyper and energtic, but after the Mitaban dip she hardly got off of her bed for 3 or 4 days. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.

[YEA]  ted.. i just wanted to thank you for letting the world know about this cure (treatment) for red mange. my chinese pug (solid black) had come down with the red mange. it began when i gave him his monthly heart worm pill (ivermectin) which he must have had an allergic reaction to. within two days this poor pooch was scratching himself raw, to the point of bleeding, his hair was falling out, his tongue and mouth were swollen and he had no energy. i did research on this disorder only to find that vet's would give him the same ivermectin to cure the red mange. i was not a happy camper. so i did my research and came upon the peroxide and borax mixture. i believe in holistic medicines, so i decided to give it a try. the first treatment was on a Thursday. Friday he laid around all day with no energy. his second treatment was on a saturday, and he ran outside to try and get the mixture off of his mouth. it kinda foamed a bit on his lips. i also took the advice on the borax in his drinking water. then i started him on a meat diet. he gets boiled chicken each night with vitamin supplements. within a week of treatments, his sores have healed up, he has quit scratching and when he is bathed, he no longer looses a cup of hair. the most amazing thing was watching his energy level come back to life. his hair is slowly coming back and i am glad to have my dog back again. he has even begun to sleep in the bed with me again. the only difficulty i had was in the measurements of ingredients. so, i figured them out for all us americans. the appropriate measures are: 2 cups of Hydrogen Peroxide + 2 cups of water + 3 heaping Tablespoons of Borax. this is the mixture that is poured over the freshly bathed dog and do NOT dry them off. i let mine outside to run off some of the moisture. thanks so much for giving me back my dog. i will only use the earthclinic from now on for my poor pooch.

Janice: Thank you for the feedback! You wouldn't believe the things I tried on my poor dog to find that remedy! My vets were absolutely no help.

Even getting a yearly vaccine caused my dog to be sick and lost his hairs so there is something about the dog's immune system getting destroyed with the vaccines. Most stray dogs do not get mange as easily as the ones we take care so well. It is probably the "prepared dog foods" (home cooked food is never a problem), useless vaccination, and doctor's med that seem to initiate the mange a LOT more easier.

As an update, I now use the borax and peroxide remedy as a weekly bath for the dog. It kills the mites and fleas.

My dog seems to love taking a bath with this remedy, whereas, other commercial shampoo he hates it. Also the insecticide component of the commercial dog food seems to modify the dog's hormone and cause the dog and the person who gives it to be sick. Most insecticidal formulas used in many products are pseudoestrogen, which is well known for cancer causing. But what is not known is that it suppresses the immune system and may make the dog's conditions worse. No wonder my dog hated the commercial dog shampoo!

[YEA]  Ted, I have written to you before because as I had mentioned my dog is 12 years old so I didn't know if I could give him your treatment without hurting him. After reading all the feedback and learning that your dog was 13 I just went right ahead and did it. I have a pure bred fox-terrier wired hair, actually I have three but Charlie is the one with demodectic mange. Two years ago Charlie was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism and therefore he has low immune system. The doctor told me he had some type of allergy so a test was conducted in 2004 and therefore he was placed on this allergy program of allergenic extracts for a whole year. I stopped it because I saw no improvement on the contrary between the prednisone and the program he was getting worse. Then he was diagnosed with atopic dermatitis and was given cyclosporine capsules and after four capsules the dog started vomiting, stopped eating was lethargic so I stopped giving him those. This poor dog has continued since 2004 with the itch and has two patches of missing hair on either side because he chews desperately. He has been given prednisone and antibiotics but then this year he got a black spot on his back so the doctor had that scraped to see if it was cancerous. Thank God, it was not cancerous but discovered he had demodectic mange. He put him on a daily dose of ivermectin, antibiotics for ten days and antihistamine. He took it the whole month of April, when I took him in for a test he still had the demodectic mange. He said continue another month (May) of ivermectin etc. after giving him another box I saw he was not improving he was itching like crazy and was wobbling. I thought, if I continue like this I am going to kill this dog. I stopped the treatment I have to take him in this month for another test after having finished with the medication. I stopped the treatment and I looked desperately on line to see if there was any cure. I found you, Ted and I want to tell you I gave him the first treatment yesterday. Today since he is still itchy I said come here and I will cure you. Since I read that you said it was good to blow dry the hair, I went to get the hair dryer and when I came back, he was still waiting next to the sink. That meant that he felt relieved with the first treatment usually I have to go after them because they don't stay when it's bath time, they run even though after the bath they feel great but it's always the same thing. When I saw Charlie waiting next to the sink I couldn't believe it. The first time I left him wet in the garage but the second day I blew dry the hair. I am dying to see him totally well. I already see he is relieved but I want to see him totally well. I haven't dared give him the borax in the water because I am afraid since he has Hypothyroidism. I started the treatment of peroxide with borax on June 2,2007 and I have done it twice on a daily basis until I see that it is totally under control then I will do it once a week. Ted, I want to thank you so very much for your valuable and life saving information. You are so very kind in sharing this so that these poor suffering animals can lead a normal life. Thank you again. P.S. Mil? a lump the size of a pea on his lip and I put some of this with a sponge. I will let you know the results of both my doggies. Thank you.

[YEA]  CURE DEMODECTIC AND SARCOPTIC MANGE: This remedy is GREAT!!!!! Here is my story. My boyfriend brought home a dog that was given to him. She looked funny, she was thin and she had patches of hair gone. I though she was just adjusting to the new environment. I found out she is a picky eater. Well, she is a smart dog and allows me to keep her tied up. When she is ready, she can and will get loose. To make a long story short, she had puppies and by then, all the hair on her head had fallen off and her puppies were beginning to loose hair in spots. She was itching herslef until she had scratches, I was giving her benedryl to stop the itching. I got on line and figured out she had Sarcoptic Mange. I found that you can smother them by putting baby oil on the dog. That only kept it at bay. I found this remedy and tried it. I went to Walmart and bought the supplies. I treated her and the first day her skin started flaking. A few days later, I treated her again and I started seeing peach fuzz on her head. I also put a little in her drinking water for inside out treatment. Now she looks like a completely different dog and the puppies hair grew back also. SO if any dog has puppies and you are worried if the puppies may be harmed, they won't. I did not treat them, I treated her and put some borax in her water. As she was being treated, the left over residue from her treatment and the borax in her treated the puppies also, they were still feeding. I also found that giving her green tea boosts her immune system.My boyfriend wants to take the credit, but I really have to give the credit to Ted.

[YEA]  I tried Ted's proxide and borax remedy . I am very proud that i ran across this sight when looking for a cure on the net. I had Doxie puppies that caught it from mother, she was so malnourished " my fault i have to say bought a different brand of food , didn't check the label good. " That is all it could have been, have done nothing different . anyway she quit feeding the pups at three weeks and with the mange thought sure i would loose them . went and got the fixings and bathed them as directed and could tell a difference with the first treatment. have had three baths now and all three are getting their hair back one has got all of his. mother and her mate have recovered almost as quickley. thank you so much . I advise anyone to try it first works better than most vet remedies i have tried.
