Ted's Dog Mange Cure

Posted by RAY (LAREDO, TX) on 02/16/2009

I HAVE BEEN TREATING MY 10 MONTH OLD GERMAN SHEPHERD WITH TED'S REMEDY FOR MANGE. I JUST WANT TO KNOW IF I AM DOING THE RIGHT PROCEDURE. 32OZ OF PEROXIDE 3%, 64OZ WATER, 1 TO 1 1/2 CUP OF BORAX. I AM SPONGING HER WITH THE SOLUTION EVERY OTHER DAY AND LET HER AIR DRY. I FOCUS ON THE AFFECTED PARTS WHICH ARE HER CHEST AND LEGS. I HAVE NOT SEEN DRAMATIC CHANGE, SO I AM THINKING IF I AM DOING THIS RIGHT. ALSO, AFTER EVERY SPONGE BATH SHE VOMITS, I AM ASSUMING FROM LICKING HERSELF AND INJESTING THE SOLUTION. IS THIS NORMAL?

PLEASE ADVISE...

It's not working because the remedy I now required is applied everyday, plus no rinsing as the key. a rinsing would have washed off the borax. A solution should be long enough to take effect. Perhaps putting them in bathtub and reapply during bath for about 15 minutes will be more effective, before leaving the dog without rinsing. Because a saturated borax is used, it is likely very little of borax remains on the dog. So should the dog licks, it should not have induce the vomiting. The amount of both the hydrogen peroxide and borax dose is too low to have any effect. Therefore, either borax flakes too large or hydrogen peroxide in large amount was somewhow ingested during the bathing. Henceforth an easy way to get around this problem is to put muzzle on the dog DURING and AFTER bathing for a couple of hours (say 4-5 hours) before rinsing them a way, thus leaving no trace of anything to cause vomiting for the dog.

If a hydrogen peroxide concentration is too high, may induce vomiting. However, I have no way of knowing the concentration of hydrogen peroxide in the water solution mixed. A hydrogen peroxide solution should be around 1%. So my understanding is that it exceeded that concentration. As to why it is not working. It appears that the solution did not stay on the dog that long.

I have received one report that the use of vegetable oils applied to mange are area of the dog helped. However, this may not be accurate information, but is worth a try and results should be expected in a short time. I prefer coconut oil or olive oil for use is one safe way to give it a try, only after the borax saturated solution in 1% hydrogen peroxide is applied.
