We thank you so much, Ted from Bangkok, Thailand. your cure The best....
for our dog - so called allergy etc etc ...your cure was the best.whether it was allergy or not for which we spent hundreds of dollars to the vets... your cure mange is to mix a 1% hydrogen peroxide solution with water and add borax. Dissolve thoroughly. Wash the dog with it once a week. Do NOT WASH THE solution left on the dog with ANY WATER. Do not wipe the dog dry. The solution will take effect on mange. The treatment period should not be longer than a month or two. The dog will probably not be resistant as the treatment is painless. This has worked well for me.. we applied 3-4 times over 2 weeks.. our sinba the lion back and roaring, no more itchy and scratchy...
thank you thank thank you, you saved our dog..
I have posted several comments on Ted's remedy for demodex mange. The peroxide, h2o, borax solution. I wanted to let everyone know that Ruff, in my opinion, is 95% improved. He still has a couple of scabs on his neck. I am no longer finding them throughout his body. His underbelly was THE worst. He may scratch once or twice a day but it's not consistent scratching. Whenever I do see him scratch, I just warm up some of the solution I have made up and rub the spot down to the skin. I do include 1/8tsp. of borax in his drinking water.
His circles/patches of hair loss show signs of hair coming back. (He never went completely bald in these circles, he just lost hair and they appeared as dark rings). I am just here to give praise where praise is due, and this remedy is due it's share. I also still rub him down with the (blue)Listerine/baby oil/water solution too. It helps soften his fur and I'm sure his skin and boy does he ever smell good. I even spray his bedding, towels and toys with it and alternate with apple cider vinegar (ACV). I still wash his bedding at least weekly along with any soft/fuzzy toys. I throw in borax with the wash as an extra incentive. Thanks Ted and everyone else for sharing your experiences. If I knew where to post the pictures of him before and after I would.
Hi there, We just adopted a rescue "Jack Sparrow" & believe him to be Shepherd/Collie cross. I noticed hair loss around one eye & researched finding this site. From this I guessed him to have Demodectic Mange & confirmed with a Vet last week. She did the scraping & I viewed in the microscope to see these little 'bugger's'. Unfortunately, she gave Jack a shot of I believe "Dectomax" & was told he'd have this injection once a week & monitor (approx.4 weeks). To my horror yesterday when we went for his 2nd shot, we saw our usual Vet & he let us know, thankfully, that this type of medicine can prove deadly for Collies! Of course this was NOT an option any longer & we were offered a blood test to determine if Jack would be at risk for a hefty price of $150.00. As he isn't in a bad way yet, (couple patches & not itchy) I thought we'd try 'Teds' remedy 1st, & right away thanx to this site, I've been giving him immune boosting foods. Also, as it is close to his eye, My Vet recommended using Artificial Tear (contact lense solution) for dry eye, to wash his eye if any gets too close to his eye. Thought I'd pass these two bits of info. on that I've come across as I haven't read yet that Collie's are at risk & I noticed someone asking about getting the "Ted Remedy" in the eyes. As we live out & away I'm hoping it won't be too hard to find the ingredients... And I really hope Jack responds as well as other's. Thank-you Ever So Much for all the information & another option!

I've been using Ted's solution mix for a month now. I am now putting an equate brand name for acne treatment. This contains 10% benzoyl peroxide on the mange pimples. When I first started the treatment he was covered in the mange pimples. He's down to just several now. I give him a good rub down to feel for them. I also pay attention to where he scratches, which isn't often. Using a used peroxide bottle I made a solution to use on him in between baths. This has helped a lot. I HAVE A QUESTION ABOUT THIS. HOW LONG DOES THE SOLUTION RETAIN IT'S HELPING PROPERTIES ONCE IT'S BEEN MIXED? I am wondering if I should change it after a few days or is it good till it's gone?
Something else I saw on here was to mix baby oil, blue Listerine and water 1/3 parts each. I have used this especially when coming inside from outdoors. It really makes the fur soft and helps him smell a lot better. Everything I'm doing I learned from this site. I've even posted it on my dogster and doggyspace pages. I'm not mistaken, this should continue even after control of the mange just as you would any typical grooming care of your dog. I do appreciate any response concerning my question.
just to say that i tried the borax/peroxide solution on my dog. i tried everything else and was not impressed by the possible side effects of medication our vet advised. (much less the price). i was amazed. this is the first day that she has not scratched herself stupid. her hair was falling our and she was in so much distress that this was my last resort. (wish i had tried it earlier) i have used this on our 2 other babies because this is contagious and also sprayed everything with the same solution. (i.e bedding etc.) so far the results are amazing. will let you know if it keeps up. (i am giving them a treatment of just a sponge bath every other day for awhile to make sure all the mites and eggs are killed off). thank you thank you thank you.
We rescued a 3 month old boxer/terrier. She has about 3-4 spots of hair loss and also around her eyes; the vet confirmed dermodemic mange. They wanted to use ProMeris which is used for fleas & ticks. I read on the internet that dogs cannot fight the dermodemic mites because of a weakened immune system.So I changed her diet to Innova Puppy Food which is a high protein diet.I also used the borax/hydrogen peroxide dips twice a week; 1 bottle of peroxide mixed with 2 bottles water and dissolved 3 tablespoon borax. I added flaxseed oil, vitamin E and C, echinacea oil, and organic apple cider vinegar to her food daily. Her hair is growing back in less than 3 weeks. Amazing results without the harmful chemicals! Thanks for this wonderful remedy.
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

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!!

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?
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!
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.

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.
Does the borax and peroxide also work on cats? If not, what can one use to treat cats with bird mites?
i have 4 springers, i just treated one, so far, did the first tx per suggestions for mange. this smaller springer loves to run down fox holes, and torment coyotes. I ususlly have to vet treat all 4 twice a year for mange.
