I have a 6 year old Chihuahua who came down with the mange. I was trying everything, I was desperate. After doing research and reading on the web I found the mayonnaise and apple cider vinegar works best. I added a twist to it that makes it even better.

First put mayonnaise all over the dog - it has to be real mayo. Leave on for 30 minutes then rinse very well with warm water.

Then, instead of using shampoo, I took a bar of Caress Beauty soap. Lather up and scrub her all over down to her feet and in between the pads left on for 10 minutes. Then rinse through very well to remove all soap. Then I mixed up apple cider vinegar and water (50/50) and poured over her and allowed her to dry as much as possible without towel drying.

Then I took betadine applied on cotton balls, and apply to affected areas and let dry.

What an amazing difference. In 5 days I have done this twice. Hair is growing back, bumps are gone scabs are gone. I would recommend this to anyone.

After reading the reviews of nautropathic ways to handle mange, I decided to try the mayo & apple cider vinegar method as it appeared to be the least invasive to my dog... I just had to comment that the combination did wonders to heal the mange on my dog makana! I applied the mayo consistententy so as to not have the mites spread & the vinegar cleaned & protected her skin... It really worked.. It took several weeks, but the mange has disappeared & her new hair has grown back... Once the mange was contained & the worst was over, I applied 100% aloe vera & tea tree oil.. I highly recommend this method, the whole ordeal is over & it did the trick... Thank you! Kudos!

I am a 66 year old senior with an 11 year old dog. We are both a couple of old dogs. I just used a home remedy of Apple Cider Vinegar & mayonaise on the hot spots on my dog & (mange) his itiching seemed to go away immediately. I then put the ACV in a spray bottle with water and a tiny bit of hydrogen peroxide and sprayed the carpet and his bedding. I gave my dog a bath and shampooed the carpet. I put 2 tablespoons of ACV in his food and he licked his bowl clean. took him to the park and dabbed mayonaise(2 tablespoons-suffocates the Mites)on his chest where the red spots were and the itiching and then brought him home and gave him a good bath. I washed his bedding and then sprayed it with ACV, water, H202. I have not heard him scratching since. Lou

First let me tell you thanks for this web site
the woman from Florida who runs a puppy rescue ..
THANK YOU for the Mayonnaise and apple cider vinegar cure for Mange !
simple and soothing for my pooch..

The Mayo she said deprives oxygen from getting to the mite...

I just took a plastic teaspoon and slathered it on the hair loss patch and directly on with the mite bumps ... about an hour later I removed the mayo with a paper towel.. and took sterile gauze pads and soaked them in the apple vinegar.. I left the gauze soaked pads in place for about 10 minutes ( my pooch was very cooperative. so I guess she felt relief immediately.. and became calm as if she was getting a spa treatment.

I did this procedure twice in 12 hours ( night time ) and I am amazed to report that YES the mites vacated the bumps .. you can see the exit opening in the bumps
but they were evidently trapped in the mayo.. and were tossed out in the paper towel..(RIP... < smile > and my dog's relief? priceless all this from my cupboard./ grocery store.. fantastic

I now have made a mixture of the borax soap ( 20 mule team laundry detergent .. from Von's grocery store) and diluted 3 percent hydrogen peroxide ( cut with equal amounts of water to reduce it to approx 1 percent hydrogen peroxide )

I made a paste of sorts of the mixture and took a plastic spoon and mad a sort of poultice? covering the effected mite bumps on my dog.. I have placed it on her and am letting her dry -- as I said the relief she is getting is making her soooooo cooperative

NOW while she is sleeping I am taking all towels used, and my bed sheets and putting them in the washing machine..bleach, hottest water, 20 Mule Team Laundry detergent .. and washing everything while she sleeps ..

wow I cant believe the difference @80 percent improvem3ent and almost all the mite mounds/bumps are gone !!Again thank you for this web site.. amd thanks Ted and the woman with the Rescue in Florida for posting your natural treatments on this site ..

I notice that there is a cure for people who have Scabies.. with the same remedies

if it works as well on the same treatment for people as it did my little dog.. i can only imagine what relieve it would be.. hopefully I won't befall such a medical issue myself.. but if I ever should I am reaching for the mayo and cider vinegar.. and the borax and peroxide treatment --cause they are Very Very effective.. WOW

my pooch sends you big wet grateful kisses K. Anderson
