[YEA]  re: Mange. I just want you to know that I tried your peroxide/ baking soda mix. It worked. My cat was so bad that I was about ready to put her down. She was dying before my eyes, and there was nothing I had tried that was working. I figured what did I have to lose I had tried everything and it just seemed to make her worse. She was lifeless. Now she is back to herself Thank you my friend. I tell everyone I see about you and this site.

EC: Shirley, there is no mange remedy on the site with peroxide and baking soda. We presume you mean Ted's remedy: peroxide and borax?

There was one cat pet that I had that I couldn't save when I was two years old and it was my favorite cat. I had a rare psychic experience that my cat would die if it was taken outside the house that very night, so I cried for hours before the cat died, but my parents refused to believe me and put it outside. It died that very night - the dog killed the cat. Maybe that cat I dearly missed won't be returned, but I can at least save other cats lives rather than seeing them unnecessarily put down to sleep.

[YEA]  Hi all! And Thank you Ted! I am writing in to let you know that I have tried the peroxide and borax solution on my sons 6 month old pitbull. Poor little guy was diagnosed with Dermodex Mites (after a skin scrapping)about a week ago. Initially we put him on antibiotics and dipped him once in Mitaban. His irritated skin seemed to lessen after the immediately after the dip, but was even more inflamed the next day. I was told this was normal due to the fact that we had now sent the mites into a frenzy by dipping him. This made sense, I suppose, and we really had no other choice. Rocky became lethargic and seemed depressed in the next 12 hours or so. We were so worried about him and the effects that this dip would have on him (as he would need another in a couple of weeks) Our hearts were breaking watching him suffer. I am always very interested in natural remedies for myself, so started searching the internet. I found Earth Clinic and was impressed with the results of all who had tried this remedy. After emailing a few of you, I decided to try it. I found the 20 Mule Team Borax easily at the Target Store. I was nervous to bathe little Rocky in borax! but hopeful, but he was so itchy and miserable. His skin was inflamed and bleeding on his head. 'Could it be any worse then the Mitaban chemicals?' So I mixed up the solution.(1)16oz. bottle of 3% peroxide, 2 16oz bottles of water and 4 heaping Tbls. of borax powder. I bathed him in baby shampoo first, towel dried him and started to pour the solution onto him, rubbing it into his fur with my hands and saturating him down to his skin. I 'cotton balled' the solution all around his face (which was the worst area infected) and under his chin. I tried really hard not to let him shake for about 3 minutes or more, talking real calm and telling him how good he was. He wanted to shake bad! After a few minutes I let him jump out of the tub and BOY did he shake. My entire bathroom was soaked. My hallway was soaked, everything was soaked. I did not care one bit. I was so happy to see him being frisky! Within the first minutes of him jumping out of the tub, I noticed his skin had actually turned pink instead of beet red. By the end of the day, His skin was pale pink almost white. I mixed up a spray bottle of solution and sent it home with my son last night. Today Rocky is back with me and his skin is looking great. I will bathe him again this evening after his nap and hope for continued success! I am so thrilled to have found this website and have already recommended it to others with pets. Thanks again everyone for posting your testimonials and emails. I have posted mine and will keep in touch on Rocky's progress!

[WORKED TEMPORARILY]   I wrote in months ago about the great results we had using borax perox baths. A few months after using the baths, I noticed Rockys condition getting bad again. I continued bathing him every 3 days in the bath, Vit E oil orally and topically. Pinch of borax in his wather... Diluted Tea tree oil on mange 'pimples'...I have been diligently keeping up with Rocky. Sometimes he looked like he was growing hair like crazy.. and next thing he looked like he was losing it again... I have been frustrated, but tried not to give up hope....in the end, I am sad to report, that this morning, after dropping him off to have him neutered, I recieved a phone call a little later in the day. The mange was getting worse and I was informed that I could possibly have abuse/neglect charges brought against me for not treating his mange medically. I had to leave my work because I almost got sick all over. Never in a million years would I expect to hear these words directed towards me. I love this dog and am sick to my stomach. I followed the instructions completely and carefully and religiously. I am now forced to go back to mitaban and start him on ivermectin. I have purchased antifungal shampoo to help heal the "secondary skin infection" that Rocky has now developed and have him on antibiotics, and heart worm med (starting in a few weeks) The doc actually told me that it was close to turning into "Red Mange". I was so hopeful. Now I am just scared. This poor dog has been suffering and I am beyond feeling guilty... I can't bathe him for 7 days but am feeling desperate to start him on the chemicals that I was so against. I cannot let this dog get any worse and risk his life....

Any suggestions or advice Ted?

[YEA]  Ted, I have a lab/chow mix..she had a severe case of dermedectic mange.. Noel's skin was horrible chewed up/losing hair for months/really smelly..chewing her paws raw--this disease went undetected for several months. I did take her regularly to our area vets..(none ever mentioned mange, or skin condition)Lots of $$$$$$$ later I found your site.this was many months ago. Your mange cure worked miraculously! (within 2 weeks) QUESTION: For her ears we were told she was allergic to meat (?not so sure now ..So she eats cat food that is fish-based) Is there any solution i can find on your site that I can gently cure her poor ears with? She shakes her head all the time..is miserable alot/she is always scratching at her /bleeding/smelly /swollen ears . I am referring to the inside of her ears RE: Her mange actually have photos before and after of her new shiny coat. (I kept the borax/hydrogen/water mixture on hand just in case..I warm it up to room temperature before using. Thanks for your remedy and cure.

For the dog with bad ears and shaking the head to relieve the ears... I realize this was posted years ago, but I want to reply for anyone reading this... It sounds like the ear mites, like cats get. Black gobs come out? It's blood.

Put baby oil in there every day for a while. Let them shake all they want. Enough oil will stay in to smother the mites.

They look awful during treatment, but it works. At least it did on my cats.

[YEA]  I have to say, I was really skeptical of Ted's mange cure. It seemed awfully risky to use some fly-by-night cure on my dog that I found on the Internet. Not exactly the safest source of information. My wife felt the same way. However, having read every one of the comments and seeing that some had posted their email address, I determined these were real people and I wasn't just being scammed by some sick-o. I decided to give it a shot. That is, after I spent $140 at the vet on their ringworm cure. THe first thing I did was stop the medicine Ivermectin (sp??). That seemed so radical to me --that I would dare to buck the vet's advice. My dog has mange spots about the size of quarters and 1/2 dollar pieces that are clearly defined circles (for lack of hair). It's not thin hair so much as simply visible skin one of them is a bit rough. She also has pink skin in her ears and under her tummy but no discernable sores in those areas. Under her neck and around her muzzle there's pinkness showing through (barely) and a thinning of hair that looks to be more mites getting started. She was scraped by a vet that determined she did have mange (demodex). So I knew for sure what I was dealing with. We were a little weary of using Borax & Peroxide on her because that just seemed wrong to us. But on reflection, it's merely a detergent (additive) that's not so far away from shampoos or other soaps. And I read Ted's words very very carefully about the purpose of water, peroxide and borax. In the end, it seemed to make sense. I found 20 Mule Team Borax at the supermarket far down the isle from regular detergents (for you guys out there, you might have to ask). A box costs about $4.50. I then bought 2 large (1000ml) bottles of Hydrogen Peroxide that was labeled "3%" for about $2.50 each. I figured 4 baths, each using 1/2 bottle and 4 cups of Borax. Total cost, $14.00!! This'll never work. I'm simply not that lucky. At home, I used the bathtub formula of 3 to 4 inches lukewarm water (it's very cold here right now) plus 1/2 of one large bottle (500ml) of Hydrogen Peroxide. I added 4 cups of 20 Mule Team Borax and used my hand to agitate the water until I couldn't feel the borax granules any more. I figured if the solution hurt my hand, then I'd quit right there. It doesn't. In goes my dog. I used the cup to pour water over her for about 10 minutes. I used my wet hands (no dripping water) to wipe inside her ears and around her muzzle. I got her out of the tub, (more like I stood back and she sprang out) let her shake and then I used a blow dryer. After a couple of days, there appeared to be some change but I couldn't say for sure. I was a bit disappointed and a bit unsure. Maybe the vet medicine was working after all --before I stopped it? Maybe Ted's Cure was working a little? Three days later, in she goes again. This time, I added an extra cup of Borax and kept her in a little longer. Maybe 12 minutes! It's hard to keep her in there. She's 60 lbs of steady force. Out she goes but no blow drying this time. I actually wanted some of the mixture to rub around the house where she goes. KInda like a living wash cloth. Ok, ok, so I'm a "guy." Now, a week later, it's clearly and visibly working! Some spots have completely grown back --sure, it's still a little thinner than her regular coat but man, what a difference. Clearly, obviously she has new hair growth everywhere. One spot she's had for 6 months is gone! She has exhibited no side effects whatsoever. She's a strawberry blond so if her hair dyed a bit, I wouldn't notice it too much. I think one more bath today and she's done --other than routine, once a month treatments. This cure is working for me, no question about it and I'm excited about it. WEll, there is one side effect to the baths. She smells great! Not that she was a stinker like some dogs with mange, but more like a good just clean smell. I give her a bath every two weeks with shampoos for dogs. This is much better! It is, after all, what Borax does, isn't it? Anyway, thanks to all who wrote in, thanks to Ted, too! It works and I can't wait to go back the vet... this time he's paying me.

[YEA]  This mange cure really works!! I was a little skeptical but very desperate. We used the 20 Mule Team Borax and 3%Hydrogen Peroxide diluted to 1% solution on our female Andulasian Pyranees Shepherd, Sheba. We had been using a sulfur-based medication but it seemed we were fighting a losing battle. We could not afford to spend big bucks at the vet so finding this website was God-send. After 6 weeks, Sheba has re-grown most of her hair (her back was almost hairless). We will continue these treatments until it all grows back. Thank you Ted for posting this amazing cure!

[YEA]  I have been using Ted's hydrogen peroxide and borax mange treatment and it seems to working great on my dogs demodectic mange. I have a couple of bottles of 99% pure DMSO. Do you have a formula for using this DMSO and borax, I understand DMSO is better penetrant than HP

[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!
