A borax and hydrogen peroxide remedy can be used to take baths on a dog regularly. In event of a mange it is best to take bath everyday. Without the mange the remedy can be used just like a shampoo. Only in this case, you shampoo first, rinse, then follow this with a borax and hydrogen peroxide 1%. However, 1% may cause the fur in some dogs to be orange if the hair is black. In this case the solution is lowered to below 1% to about 0.5% to 0.75% concentration which will not effect the color of the hair.
