How do I use sodium perborate for mange. I read how to use the H202 borax, but there are no instructions for sodium perborate.
Thank you, PatSt. Louis MO

[YEA] Aug 07 I had a boxer born here in roatan with her 3rd time with demodec mange. she is one of 5 in her litter and at 8 months old she was the only one alive. She would go to a vet for 3 weeks, come back with no hair. the hair grew back 6weeks later and then the mange came back. after 2 times I was desperate. I researched out a holistic vet I found in N Miami beach (Dr. Bernstein). he and worked very closely with remedies and baths of coconut oil. he now tells me that she was hours from death. I thought of putting her down but I just could not give up on her. I got my remedy kit from him and fed her one kind of meat and nothing else. her ears were so swollen they didn't bend, her eyes were so swollen she could not see out of them and the puss oozing was terrible. her skin was bleeding and scabby and she was all bones. We used hepar, sulphur, other remedies. A year later she is happy playing, her hair has grown back, she looks great and I am so happy i didnt have to put her down. DONT GIVE UP ON YOUR DOG WITH MANGE. PLEASE.
EC: Hmmm.... the name of your vet sounds very familiar. In fact, it may have been 10 years ago that I called Dr. Bernstein for a consultation about my malamute, who was having terrible neck problems. (I lost the name and # years ago unfortunately.) He also recommended a raw food diet and some homeopathic remedies, which did wonders for Rajah. If you still have a contact phone # for him, would you please send it in to EC? Thanks!

[YEA] Red Mange
I have discovered a treatment for red mange that works miracles! After only three hours the large strawberry like splotches turned dark brown. The red rash (about 60% of the dogs skin)turned light brown. The bloody places on her tail stopped bleeding and began drying up. Best of all she stopped scratching.
After three days her skin was smooth with a light rose tint. Ten days later you can still see the white skin through the short hair that is growing fast.
Here's how: Pore a 24 0z. bottle of any sugar base syrup into a large pot and bring it to a boil for three minutes. Add four heaping table spoon fulls of Arm & Hammer baking soda. Be CAREFUL,If your pot is not big enough (about 8 qts.)it will boil over! After a few minutes it will start to thicken. Add enough tap water to thin it to it's original syrup texture. Done properly it will not separate. I used a 2 inch paint brush to coat the affected areas. Next day it didn't look like it was needed but I painted her again. Also gave her a half cup to eat. Those little critters love sugar but the bicarbonate wipes them out. I got the idea when I googled breast cancer.
They said maple syrup but I figured any sugar syrup would do. After cooking the syrup will be dark amber.
My new dog Beulah, no longer abandoned and homeless looks great. I do hope this works as well for others as it has for Beulah and I. It cost almost $4.00

[YEA] When I was a small child my puppy got mange from a stray cat, My grandmother used a paste of Sulfer powder and bacon greese applyed daily until all signs were gone on puppy. It was plyable and stuck to skin and fur. I dont know exact ammounts sorry. But it worked and we never had problems again.Replied by Jenn

[YEA] We have cured two family dogs with a paste of flowers of sulfur powder (bought at feed store) and vegetable oil. These were separate occurrences, years apart). Each time they had been diagnosed by the vet, and we had used the prescribed medication without results. When we used the sulfer & oil treatment the results were fast and complete.Posted by Sara (Albertville, Alabama) on 10/16/2007
[YEA] Sulfur We always used powder sulfur for dog mange. Mix with any oil and apply. Will stop the itching at once and a cure in a few days. Never once did it fail to work. Powder sulfur costs about 2 bucks and will last awhile. Simple and affective.Replied by Cammy
