Home Mange Remedies Overview
Treating your dog’s mange cheaply and at home absolutely holds a big appeal. For many owners it’s their first attempt at treating dog mange. Our family went the Home Remedy route too, except it was our last course of treatment, and our last hope after working with the vet for 2 years.
We began by researching and testing many natural treatments. The best results came when using a liquid to deliver active ingredients directly into the mite hiding places – burrows and hair follicles. Some of the remedies listed below use similar techniques, but without the proper ingredients. Learn about our mange treatment product Mite Avenge®.
There are many pages online that tell you how to cure mange cheaply and easily. Below are some many of the remedies we discovered after searching hundreds of web pages.
15 Home Mange Remedies
- Fresh lemon juice
- Raw garlic
- Apple cider vinegar
- Petrolium jelly
- Neem oil
- Olive oil
- Motor oil
- Colloidal silver
- Peroxide & borax
- Head lice treatment
Some of the above home mange remedies are painful and possibly dangerous (Motor Oil and Bleach). Others are counter-productive, plugging up the pores of already congested skin and hair follicles (Motor Oil, Olive Oil, Petroleum Jelly). Some may be painful when worked into raw irritated skin (Lemon, Garlic, Vinegar).
Some will give your pet temporary relief, which is a good thing, but not eliminate mange mites.
Questions to ask before starting a home mange treatment:
- What about effectiveness? What is the science behind the remedy? Any data?
- Is there any danger of making things worse or causing infection?
- Is the remedy a true anti-parasitic or only capable of relief?
