My JRT mix is itching 99.9% LESS after 2 days of home remedy treatment. I could have spared my dogs 5 weeks of complete misery if I had done this from the beginning! My BC mix is not itching much less but I realize my mistake-I did not use the natural “dip” on all his entire body, only on his stomach, legs and ears, and I see him madly biting at his tail today.
The vet told me if this would really work, wouldn’t professionals have heard of it by now and used it. But it’s working!!!
I am not one to support home remedies over the vet at all but in this case it’s the only thing that helped my dogs sarcoptic mange and non toxically!
have you ever used a home remedy and what was the outcome?
when do you know to try a home remedy over the vet?
Thanks Chi! I am just super excited that at least one dog isn’t itching nonstop today..or at all today!!
I’d been to 4 vets and they didn’t even dx with sarc mange. Someone here told me it was probably sarcoptic mange when nothing the vets did helped it. One vet wanted to do more allergy testing but I convinced him to rule out sarcoptic mange first.
I didn’t TD
Donna–this last vet wanted to send me to a dermatologist and put my dogs through more allergy testing..I sent you mail!

Glad to hear that something is working for you and your dogs.
As a former nurse, there are a lot of home remedies that were occasionally used in a homecare situation despite no “medical” approval… and they work AND are used by people with enough sense to know when medical intervention is necessary.
I would love to hear what the home remedy you’re using is. Please email me with it if you feel comfortable doing so.
Years ago I had a dog that was so itchy for MONTHS that we nearly euthanized him to stop his misery. A skin punch test didn’t reveal any mange of either sort. We eventually soaked him in baby oil as a last ditch effort and it alleviated the itching which even the steroids the Vet had given failed to do. We left it on him overnight and then washed him in Dawn. A year later we updated his vaccinations and discovered that THAT was what had caused the original issue. Another soaking in baby oil and Dawn bath and all was well. He was never vaccinated again and never again had that issue.
