Using Sodium Perborate Solution for Mange

Posted by Ali (Karachi, Pakistan) on 12/08/2008

While writing about his cure for mange in dogs, Ted seems to indicate that if you use sodium perborate instead of borax, then hydrogen peroxide is not necessary. Is a solution of sodium perborate in water just as good without hydrogen peroxide 1% solution ? Can he please clarify and confirm. Thank you.

When I first used to see a cure of the mange, I only used sodium perborate, without the hydrogen peroxide. It worked well for me. However, the sodium perborate can be added hydrogen peroxide or a borax with hydrogen peroxide 1% may also be a stronger solution nevertheless. Therefore, I think it's safe to say if I want the mange killed, I might go for the 1% whether it's with borax or sodium perborate. A sodium perborate has a peroxide attached to the borax, so it makes for a compact form of hydrogen peroxide, albeit a weak one. Therefore to be on the safe side, a 1% hydrogen peroxide can be added to sodium perborate or borax.
