I have a 9 1/2 yr old Female Chihuahua and she weighs between 12 and 14 pounds in which I love her very much and about 3 month ago I noticed a round crusty area on top at the end of her back where her tail start going up in which it look like a bruise but there was a hole in her skin and blood around the area and on her hair and on the pillow she lays on... She yelp when I was examing it and touching it and the only thing I thought to do was put a Neosporin on it, like I do when I get a cut or scrape so it wouldn't get infected. It seem to clear up than it came back and I was lost and when I saw tears come out of eyes and one time one of her tears fell on my arm when I was holding her and I just broke down and cried because I am below poor and I do have a job but I don't get only 9 to 16 hrs a week and only make $7.91 and hour. I was searching on the computer and come across your site and it has been now a month and I and she is getting worst it has spread on her back and her her neck and she is unable to sleep at night but it seems not to bother her as much during the day as I noticed at night when we go to bed.
But, I have read your solution for Sacroptic Mange and what to try and I believe I am reading it right, but, will you please email me back to make sure I am doing it correctly... I will be starting the solution on her tonight... I believe you said to wash and than rinse and I thought ot my self do I dry off my dog with a towel before I apply the Hydrogen Peroxide and Borax Powder and leave that on her her don't rinse... Is that correct I am new at this she hasn't been around other dogs but, where I live is other dogs and the old people here feed the Squrriels and there is 2 cats that hang around here and I was wondering if possibly my dog could got this just from walking in the sand or grass where opther dogs or cats have and squrriels have beeen and gotten this on her that way. I just don't know and my heart is braking because I just don't know what to do. PLease help me in anyway you can... I have no money to take her to a Vet. I have had her since she was 8 weeks old and she is 9 1/2 yrs old now.
PLease Help a Lady in Florida... PLease email me ASAP

Sarcoptic Mange & Allergy, Lime-Sulphur Dip
One of my two dogs (Rex) has got Sarcoptic Mange and has probably infected the other one by now. Unfortunately Rex is allergic to both Ivermectin and Amitraz. We live in Malawi and those are the only drugs available. I have now been able to get a lime-sulphur dip but it is for plants. The active ingredient is polysulphide sulphur 320g/l. Can I use that? If so, how should I dilute it? If not: what can I do?
The other dog, (Pumpkin) apart from having been infected with the mange, is allergic to I don't know what. We suspect it is something in the garden. (The dogs stay outside.) She has wounds on her paws from chewing and red spots, like pimples on the soft part of her belly. The vet here recommended cortisone in low dosage given daily and ongoing. The other vet here suggested anti-histamines. On top of that we have been washing the paws regularly and applied antiseptic cream but none of this really works. I am not happy about that as I think she can't be on pills forever. I have now heard about homeopathic drops that might help but don't have a name. Do you know about these? Or do you have any other suggestions? Please help, my dogs are in really bad shape! Thanks a lot

[YEA] I live on the Caribbean island of Dominica in the West Indies and have a local dog. She came to us with a low immune system and gets recurring mange. We have tried the chemical treatment but it was very harsh on her. We also tried neem oil without very good results. I took her to see the vet who works with PAWS the rescue dog charity and was recommended a local treatment. 2 liters of Seawater (or salt water) and ½ a Calabash. (Or bottle gourd or opo squash not to be confused with the calabaza) Scoop out the fleshy insides of the calabash and squeeze into seawater. Then add 3 fresh limes squeezed and mixed with the seawater & calabash.
Strain and coat the dog in the liquid. Do not rinse for 2 days and rinse and repeat the process twice. Fantastic results! No more mange and she started to grow her shiny new hair back as soon as the treatment finished. Very happy Ocho Dog.

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

HI U OM, , , , , , , , , , ,
This is not high tech stuff and you just mix the wettable powered sulfur with burnt motor oil until you have a paste that will coat and stay with the dog. I always put the dog in a tub of some kind because it's a messy process. I put on a rain coat , goggles, and rubber gloves. The dog needs to be securely tied in the outdoors because his going to try and rub all this junk off. It's also better to have someone holding the dog while you are coating them. The dog should be covered from head to tail. I have never done a long haired dog, but suspect they need a hair cut.
I learned this technique from my Dad as a kid. He also used boric acid. I don't. We have cured a number of dogs with no failures. I think if you will research, the vets have many failures. When I was a kid there were few vets, so folks had to learn what works and does not for their pets. Om, you need to understand that there are lots of detractors of this procedure. I just know it works, and your dog will be one happy fella.
Just in passing , most of the folks treating their own personal mites say they only treat the mite bumps. I think that is a mistake. I did not know where they were, so every treatment was over my entire body.
Wish you well, =======OLE ROBERT HENRY============Replied by Theresa
