Hi everyone. First I want to say: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. GOD BLESS YOU ALL for this website. Ted, you are the man!!! I normally don't write reviews/post, but this is more than deserving. My Scottish Terrier Wallace (2 y/o) has been suffering from skin problems for MONTHS. His pain has been agonizing to him and to me. I suspected a skin parasite a while back after doing some research on line. Two different vets diagnosed Wallace with skin allergies. One sold me a $40 small spray that was supposed to calm things down, but it only delayed the scratching process for 2-3mins. Wallace suffered so much from this... He would scratch CONSTANTLY/NON-STOP at all time even throughout the night unable to sleep. It would break my heart... There would be times I would wake up at 2am and he would be awake scratching himself. It seemed things got worse on his skin after baths (even though we were using "gentle" and medicated shampoos. At first the scratching was just that, but throughout the weeks it escalated into mutilating himself, biting/scratching to the point of severe hot spots with bleeding/hair loss. I started noticing some scabs and redness on his skin particularly his back, neck, head and shoulder area. He also had some (not much) on his belly.

After reading blogs in this God-sent website I realized the symptoms and descriptions from other people pointed at skin parasites like Scabies. We have two other dogs and they seem to be unaffected so I'm not sure what's going on there. All our dogs are inside dogs but only Wallace was affected... People talked about diets so much, but we cook for our dogs and supplement his diet with Professional formula of the Missing Link. Recently we have been giving them plain greek yogurt with penut butter/chia seeds and flax seed oil. (they love it). However, for many months they have been getting vitamin E and Fish oil supplements yet the skin problem in Wallace was still there...

Anyways, I was treating this problem with all kinds of topical oils (avocado, pure vitamin E, coconut oil, jojoba oil), itch-relievers, and nothing worked until last night. I ordered the supplies from amazon after reading several opinions in this forum. This is what I did: I wetted Wallace with warm water, then I applied a Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca) shampoo + orange oil. I massaged that into his skin then I rinsed it off with Ted's Fantastic Miracle Borax Solution (1L water: 0.5L hydrogen peroxide: 3 tablespoons of Borax). I made him a total of 3 L of solution. after that I rinsed it off with warm water. I toweled him dry and just observed.... THE ITCHING WAS GONE!!! Even Wallace seemed surprised by it bc I think since this itching has been going on for so long, he turned like he was going to bite his back but then he realized it wasn't itching. He slept like a baby. I'm so grateful.... Our lives are blessed by this miracle remedy<3 <3 I will keep doing this 3 times per week until everything is gone. Thank you all so much.

@ Ted: I can't thank you enough. God bless you for sharing this with the rest of us.!!! Also, I want to share that before I did the Borax/hydrogen peroxide bath, I bathed Wallace with Tea Tree oil shampo and pure tea tree oil on his skin. that seemed to help him quite a bit more than the other stuff I've used before, but it was not until last night that I saw a breakthrough. Thank you all <3

We rescued a puppy this last summer, aside from the MANY visits to the VET because of kennel cough she then got Mange, fairly localized to neck and chest area. The Vet had me using the standard Ivermectin, but even after 5 months it was not doing anything, I then added Neem oil, which helped but then I found Ted's CURE. IT IS AMAZING!!!!!! . I have only been using it about 1 month and her mange is all but gone.Of course I will continue to use it for a while but I was amazed at the $10 I spent vs the $100's I had spent at the vet on meds that gave horrible side effects and didn't work.

Thank you so much.

Demodectic mange: We've been treating our new to us dog Louie with the Ted's Mange Treatment and have to say are very pleased with the results after about 5 treatments.

I recently started adding a bit of coconut oil, both to work as a carrier oil to have the treatment solution more deeply penetrate the skin, as well as to add some moisturizing effects as I'm concerned about the effects of such frequent bathing drying out the skin (and we live in MN with cold dry air). I also added a bit of neem to the solution. In between treatments with Ted's solution, we've been putting diluted neem on the visible spots. Additionally we've been brushing his fur daily using a Zoom Broom, and brushing his teeth. Louie's kibble is already grain free and fairly high quality (can't quite afford the whole raw food diet thing). He's been getting 2x daily fish oil, and we also added a canine formulary nutritional supplement with pre and pro-biotics.

My question is how long to keep doing 2x weekly baths, and how to taper off. It seems to be working, but I am concerned about the drying effects on his skin. My gut is telling me that it is time to cut back to 1x weekly, seeing how he does, and if it still seems to be improving, then to cut back to 1x ~10 days, and keep cutting back from there, ie. 2 wks, monthly, quarterly? I haven't really been able to find guidelines for how to taper and when to stop all together.

I look forward to your feedback. Thank you.

i started treating my dog (a couple year old rhodesian ridgeback mix) a couple days ago using Teds H2O2 and borax solution. I did a 2nd dip last night and am all ready seeing the remedy do its magic. I mixed up about 1 gallon of water with 1% hydrogen peroxide and about a 1/2 cup of borax. the dog doesnt like baths but didnt object too much although he definitely wanted to get out of the tub asap. my dog has a loss of hair on her rear end mostly and her skin looked blackened in areas on her belly and spots on her back. before dipping the dog I was very carefully examining her skin using my thumb and moving it slowly across the hairs on her side when I 1st spotted one of the nasty critters! They are very tiny about the size of the head of a straight pin maybe smaller and black. so I know she has sarcoptic mange and I have faith that the treatment will work and I will post back later. as regards using hydrogen peroxide I have detoxed my system of heavy metals using 35% food grade H2O2. I started out using one drop mixed with about 4-6 ounces of distilled water increasing 1 drop per day up to 24 drops mixed with the distilled water at a rate of 2X per day. once at 24 drops I decreased 1 drop per day down to 0 drops after 24 days. you can also do a detox regimen alternating the H2O2 with MSM (the active ingredient in DMSO). as in one day use the H2O2 and the next day use MSM following instructions on a heavy metal detox web site using natural cures.

I used to bath my huge pit bull in a plastic or tin or even metal portable big tub, you might be able to buy at either Lowes or Home Depot another time we used a kids plastic swimming pool, then we either did him in the cellar or put a huge absorbent blanket in the kitchen and try to wash him/her.

Good Luck & have fun. :-)

Harley is a 4 1/2 year old pit bull/lab mix. Our vet told us about 2 years ago that he had demodectic mange and a weak immune system due to heredity. Harley also has repeated ear infections. He gave us Promeris. I began using it and it did seem to help at first, but his mange came back with a vengeance and I haven't been able to get it under control.

He has developed skin infections from the constant scratching that made parts of his skin rough like elephant skin, and even scratches to the point of bleeding. He has hair loss on his entire trunk/chest, legs, and around his eyes and top of head. I have changed his food to Nutro Natural Choice, started him on a multi-vitamin, and have been using GNC antibacterial/antifungal shampoo/conditioner. This all has helped a little, but not nearly enough.

I have read about this treatment before, but was always hesitant in the past - afraid of possible side effects and safety. I decided to try it and after one treatment, I have noticed an improvement. Harley has hardly scratched and appears a lot more comfortable and less miserable. The redness is also disappearing. I plan on continuing this treatment in hopes that it rids him of this problem.

My question, though, is since his vet said he had a hereditary condition and weak immunity that makes him susceptible to mange and the ear infections, is there anything that can be done to prevent it from returning?

Thank you, Colleen

I just want to say that this worked awesome. My 1 year old pi tbull had suffered from mange and we took her to the vet and they put her on 6 weeks of Ivomec. It worked for about 5 weeks then I started to see the balding spots with redness again and knew it was coming back. I knew I needed to try something different especially because I was just laid off work and couldnt take her to the vet again for something that wasn't going to work. I have given her one bath in the solution and it has done wonders; she is no longer red and no longer scratching. I will do this once a week until her spots completely clear up. Thank you so much from a concerned pitbull mom

Thank you again, Theresa!! I can't tell you how valuable your feedback has been and how great that you too have Frenchie experience!

Did you find that if you let a female go into heat after having demodex as a puppy that she had another outbreak (or were the allergies that manifested the second year come after a heat)?

I will try the drinking water fix as well, thank you!

I can tell you that her itching flat out STOPPED last night (first night ever without itching!! ) and I had applied that anti-staph/yeast solution earlier in the day.

I will write again hopefully when she's fully recovered, but so far, Ted's remedies (and your faithful help) are curing little June Bug!

Thank you,

Lexi

Just want to thank Ted for caring enough to make this wonderful treatment accessible. It saved two more lives; my boys had red mange and my Ditto was so miserable that I decided to put him down BUT I decided to see if I could find anything on the internet first and there IT was. For the first week of just ivemectin all he did was cry and wanted to be held. It just took a few dips and he was running and playing and yes, new hair growth. My boys are beautiful, full of energy and happy again. I am more grateful than I can say.

Ted's mange cure is a godsend. I have a english bulldog who started itching badly and had a small patch of hairloss on his back. I took him to the vet, who said it was a food allergy. She was wrong, the condition kept getting worse, even when I changed protiens in my dogs diet. I decided to try ted's mange cure instead of getting the toxic dip from the vet. I did it twice the first week, then once a week after that just to be sure. It worked just like he said it would. His hair started growing back in 3 weeks, you have to be patient and get those pores unclogged before this will happen. The peroxide opens the pores and cleans them out. I also ordered some diatomacious earth from amazon to put on his hair and all over the carpet and floors in my house. I vacum it up every couple days. You need to get the food grade of diatomacious earth. It is non toxic to dogs and humans. This stuff does wonders for killing mites, fleas, ticks and anything else with a exoskeleton. My conclusion, be patient and follow the directions for teds mange cure, and it just might help your pet and save you alot of money in return. It is alot safer then that expensive toxic dip your vet will give you. Hope this helps.

The Borax and Peroxide treatment works like a charm! I have an Akita who just recently turned 1. We went to the vet because Romeo had hair missing from his armpits and belly. We thought it was an allergy. The vet checked for mites but found nothing. The hair loss continue to progress all over his body and we had Romeo checked for S.A. It got to the point where the poor dog was miserable so I started doing research on-line to find a solution. Someone had gone through the same steps I had and insisted it was mites and recommended the Borax and Peroxide treatment. I mix 32oz of Peroxide 3% with 64oz of warm water. I then add 1 cup of Borax (the brand I use is 20 Mule Team). I put that into a spray bottle and apply after a bath with anti bacterial soap. I do this every 5-6 days. In 1 month his hair started to grow back. We are now at 3 months and you can barely tell that he ever lost any hair. This works!

Today is the 2nd wash my pet dog (muttley an American Pit Bull) has had in 3 days. Hydrogen Peroxide has been too expensive to buy in any event I have not been able in isolated rural to purchase larger amounts, and as Hydrogen Perixide or vinegar is the vessle for getting Borax through my dogs skin I have purchased 2 litre bottles of vinegar and if I may make comment for what it is worth from personal observation, the Borax/Vinegar remedy from the outset has been very effective against Demodex mange, Muttley has stopped scratching a complete turnaround , I intend to continue the treatment METHOD: In a metal bowl I empty 1 to 2 litres of vinegar and heat on the stove (this raises the solubility of borax in solution= more potent)and add and stir 250 -300 grams of Borax. After showering Muttley thoroughly with shampoo and scubbed with a soft brush and rinsed, the Borax /vinegar solution is applied thoroughly, and left to dry naturally (No Towels) Note : the small bottle of 3% 100 ml Hydrogen Peroxide is kept in my medical tool kit is used if ever Muttley were to eat poison. Hydrogen Peroxide is used to induce vommitting (apply 1ml to 1 kilo body weight DYOR) Cudos to Ted from Malaysia for sharing his research and remedy

Re: Ted's Dog Mange Cure... I was skeptical but have an old German shepherd with demodectic mange. Could not afford treatments. I used this twice ten days apart and noticing huge difference. Dog was almost completely bald but now growing hair back.

Add another YEA! For Ted's Mange Cure!

I found this site searching for an alternative solution to Amitraz/Mitaban and Ivermectin for Demodetic mange/ canine demodicosis.

I am no stranger to demodex but it had been awhile since I had had to deal with it; while the thinking has changed about it - now its not considered an inherited condition so much but rather mainly a nutritional and stress related condition - the 'cures' remained the same: highly toxic. My puppy had the deep, dark angry red patches on her skin [hence 'red' mange], and the hair in those areas was thinning out and the areas started to look scabby. In a litter of 8, all had been seen by various veterinarians and skin scraped to confirm demodex; my puppy was not scraped but I have seen it before and with 7 pups confirmed I did not feel like I needed my puppy scraped [creating open sores] to confirm what I already knew. When I compared my puppy to the vet scraped puppies who were all being treated with Ivermectin mine was the worst of the lot.

I tried Ted from Bangkok's Mange cure and can't say recommend it enough!

Faithful dipping - once per week for 8-10 weeks - has resulted in a complete resolution of my puppy's demodex.

I first read through all the pages for mange and mange cures and feedback and jotted down the formula and then translated from liters to ounces to arrive at this formula:

1 brown bottle of hydrogen peroxide from the grocery store [its a 16 oz bottle of a 3% solution]

1 box Borax from the laundry aisle [unscented]

I dumped the hydrogen peroxide in a big jug and added 32 ounces [or two of the brown bottle filled up twice] of filtered tap water. This gives you 48 ounces of a 1% hydrogen peroxide solution that is needed for the next step.

Next add 1 cup of borax crystals to the jug and shake. There should be undisolved grains of borax in the mix - this is what you want to see. Now you have a jug of cold solution -I filled my tub with hot water and rested the jug in the tub; when the solution inside the jug was nice and warm, the tub was cool enough to bathe my dog, so I bathed her in doggy shampoo and then rinsed well, and pulled the plug on the tub. When the tub was empty I plugged it up again and poured the grainy solution over my dog. I then used a plastic cup to scoop up the solution and kept pouring the solution over her again and again and again. After about 10 minutes I crated her in an empty crate without bedding and let her sit for another half an hour, and then after that I let her out to romp around and work herself dry.

The first dip resulted in a frisky puppy! Where had that energy gone? It gave me a clue that she had not felt very well even though I thought she had normal energy. And her skin; it was a deep pink before the dip and now it was paler and noticeably calmer. And all it took was dipping her in what basically amounted to skinny dipping in the salty ocean!

I continued treatments on a weekly basis. I understood that a massive mite die-off might result in the condition to temporarily worsen, and so one area did seem to appear a bit angry the next day. But other than that initial die off all I saw was improvment week by week as the dark angry patches turned to pale pink and then faded away to normal skin. In contrast the puppies being treated with Ivermectin got worse before they got better - again, likely as a result of the mites dying off - but it seemed like it took longer for those pups to bounce back; and no wonder, as the Ivermectin supresses the immune system needed to combat the mites.

I treated once per week for 10 weeks - this past the time that I saw what appeared to be a complete resolution to her condition. I did the extra treatments only because the standard veterinary protocol suggested continued treatment after the condition appeared to resolve using Ivermectin and Amitraz.

I have never seen such an effective home remedy. Two thumbs UP to Ted from Bangkok!

NOTE: I understood from the notes that its best to make the 1% solution first rather than dumping the borax and 3% hydrogen peroxide in together and then adding 32 ounces of water to make the needed dilution as this approach will somehow result in a weaker solution. Its in the feedback, but I can't tell you *where*!

I have a 6 month old Boerboel puppy, and when I first got him off of the plane from South Africa, via Texas, his black coat was very shiny, healthy and beautiful. After about three weeks I started to notice red bumps on the skin of his stomach and hair loss around his neck, head, stomach, and ears. I took him to the vet and they gave him a shot that made the red bumps on his stomach go away, but he still had hair loss and red bumps on the aforementioned areas of his body.

I started researching what his problem may be online and found that he may have Demodex. I was pissed that I had just paid $2500. 00 for a breeding male that I possibly could not breed later. I then went back to the vet and after a skin scraping it was found that my pup did indeed have Demodex. The vet wanted to charge me $170.00 per chemical dip to rid him of the mites, and told me it may take three dips as well as that the dips may not work.

Thank God I found Ted's remedy on Earth Clinic. I used the solution for Four Weeks and it cleared up everything. I believe the most important part of the remedy is leaving the Borax solution on the pup/dog after you're done washing them off. My puppy's coat is beautiful and full once again he is 102 pounds at 6 months old and a real head turner when I take him out.

I just want to thank Ted and Earth Clinic for saving me money, time and sanity. I would've been still spinning my wheels if it not for this information.
