Problem On Sarcoptic Mange
For horses, this is what I do:
Not sure how’d you keep your collie from injesting any of it, but guess you could try one of those cone collars.
They also call it “sarcoptic mange”, “Spanish Itch”, “sweet itch”, lice etc.
Well if you’re willing to try anything, here’s a decades old remedy for it… Motor oil (New or used). Simply paint your horse/pony with it and it will kill the fungus/bugs. Leave it on at least a month and within 2 weeks of painting it on, you’ll see new hair growing in hairless spots. What happens is, that it coats their little bug bodies and because bugs breathe through their skin, suffocates them…
More About Sarcoptic Mange
I should state that you SHOULD either WASH your horse/pony with dawn or something else that will take the oil off IF you HAVE to ride before you put any tack on it. IF you don’t you WILL stain your tack and boots (I actually heard somebody did ride with it on their horse and it stained all their tack and their black boots turned brown)… Thought that would be a no brainer.
