Help with Red Mange
I have a 4 month-old puppy who was dumped in a ditch in the rural area where we live. In looking up a natural remedy and also talking with my vet, we have been doing the following:
In equal portions:
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1/2 cup raw apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup water
I wet my puppy with warm water, then sponge the mixture mentioned above. Let the dog dry on its own..do not dry off with a towel. Do this every other day. I have seen good results by the third dose.
Also, check with your vet about how to improve your pet's immune system. There are so many ways to do this, however, I suggest you ask your vet. Be sure to ask about yogurt, probiotics, adding a tsp of apple cider vinegar to the food. Also, ask about a med that will stop the itching while the pet is in recovery.
I am a "people" nurse and not a doggie nurse. However, I believe in the more gentle ways of helping a pet, without causing the pet to become more ill due to excess chemicals.
Best wishes on all pet owners going through this problem Remember, this takes time and does not heal overnight.
