Posted: 12:22:56 AM 8/14/2004 I am almost certain that my dog has mange! "MaMa" who believe to be a pyronese female has acquired mange some how. We despratley need a way to cure her at home we in no way can afford a vet visit at this time... I have been applying hydrogen peroxide and sea breeze and blue star ointment which seems to be slowing down her itching but we need more advice other than burnt motor oil Please some one help!!!!!

Posted: 2:29:22 AM 8/14/2004 Three bathes with flea shampoo a week apart will kill some types of mange mites, and it shouldn't do any harm.
The problem is that without a trip to the vet you really don't know what you are treating.

Posted: 7:10:12 AM 8/14/2004 Try Grape fruit seed extract. Use 10 drops or so to a pint of olive oil.
Call your local rescue /ASPCA. They some times have low cost no cost vet service. Take the doc to the vet if you are not seeing improvement in a week or so. Think how painfull this is for the dog.

Posted: 7:33:04 AM 8/14/2004 Go to your vet, get a skin scrape to determine the type of mange. There is a product called Mitaban, that is used for mange, its pricy, have to bathe the pet at two week intervals for about 3 washings. That should clear up the mange. Our clinic sells the product for $30 a bottle, you use a whole bottle each time and dilute with water. Good luck

Posted: 9:07:54 AM 8/14/2004 you really should take her to a vet to determine what type of mange it is. there are many different types of treatments that may not run you as much money as you are thinking it is going to. and how you treat it depends on what type it is. there are injections, topical treatments, and baths you can do depending on what type it is. also, if left untreated or diagnosed your dog could develop secondary problems such as staph infections from her biting and scratching her skin so much. you really need to have her checked.

Posted: 9:15:18 AM 8/14/2004 niyqq you say you're ALMOST certain that the dog (Pyrenees) has the mange. What if it's NOT mange and the home remedies you are using are only making it worse or creating a whole NEW set of dermetitis? What, exactly, is wrong? Hair loss? Pyrs lose LARGE "clumps" of hair when blowing their coats. Red skin and chewing, COULD be s simple "hot spot" that resulted from a bite, then had chewing, etc... are there bumps? any redness? any open sores or oozing?
You say you don't have the time to make a vet visit, it's probably taking far more time to keep applying all of the treatments you're using. The vet trip will more than likely cost you less than all of the things you're buying to treat AND you will know just what's wrong and be able to contain and cure it.
If nothing else, a blad Pyr would NOT be a very attractive sight~
You also have to understand basic dog anatomy and realize that they do not have the sweat and oil glands humans have, so the items you're using may be irritating a minor problem and creating a major one.
Certain forms of amnge are aslo transmitted to humans, so if it IS mange and you have children in your home....

Posted: 11:42:09 AM 8/26/2004 Hey, Try using Tea Tree Oil, just a few drops on the spot once a day. This stuff can cure anything, humans or dogs. Good Luck.
