anyone got any experience or good remedy to get rid of dog mange as poor bugger is suffering from it and vets medication does not seem to be doing the trick after a good few months of trying it.

Dont laugh when I say this, but this is what we used to use.

 

Change the oil in y our car/truck/motorbike, use the old oil to dip or heavily soil the dog. Leave it on him for about an hour. then wash him. should take care of it.

 

Seriously, I know it sounds silly, but it works.

It depends on the type of mange the dog has. There is demodeptic, and sarchoptic mange. Not sure if I have the spelling right here though. One is hereditary, cannot be caught by other dogs, and the other is the communicable mange that goes from animal to animal. You need to have the vet do a culture to determine which one it is, to see what kind of treatment you have to pursue. The medicated shampoos will heal the transferable one, while the hereditary one, its just going to be a recurring problem that gets worse over time.

ok thanks for all the info much appreciated

 

he is currently on oral ivermectin 1.2ml a day and amitraze medicated shampoo but this does not seem to be effective and trying to get him to take orally is not easy !

 

Is aludex easy to get hold of as not seen this on my travels ?

 

only problem with the oil is a lot it is around his mouth and face so not sure i could apply it in this case but good info all the same !

 

thanks

Many skin issues are caused by flea bites and then alleric reaction. Get rid of the fleas and the scracthing biting that goes with it, sometimes they'll heal up.

I had a dog with this problem around the mouth. A Vet. dermatologist was required. The only thing that worked was to have the shit scraped off, then put on anti's. It worked...

thanks for info

 

not found where they sell aludex yet any help would be appreciated.

 

What vet dermatologist did you go to ? Any ideas on costs nd timeframe for treatment and results would be appreciated.

 

He has red around the mouth not sure what they could actually scrape off but willing to give a go as current meds not really working and been on them for some time now.

 

thanks again

What kind of dogs do you have? I'm guessing at least 5 or so have to be pups right?

Dave, I actually asked my mom, lol, yep still somewhat young over here, she has been a dog groomer for 25+ years now and has been breeding dogs since I was 4 lol. She said you have to take it to the vet. There are too many variables as well. How old is the dog?, if its a year or under then it has puppy mange, and would require one course of treatment. And the biggest thing, is to find out whether its demodeptic or sarchoptic. If its demodeptic, then its a long course of treatments, if its sarchoptic, then it would only take a few treatments. And then it also depends on the breed, if its a short hair dog, then its more likely to be demodeptic.

 

So the vet is going to be your best bet. Have to get that culture taken first and foremost.
