Ive got a next door neighbor and they dont take care of their animals at all weve called the vet on them several times and they still have done nothing to take care of their animals they have two dogs that have mange. We have a boxer and are afraid that it will catch it from the next door neighbors petting our dog is it possible to be transfered from a person or their clothes?
Types of Mange
It would be unusual, but possible, depending on the type of mange. Sarcoptic mange mites can survive for a limited amount of time on a human host, and certainly the mites could be transported on human clothes and skin if they were in close contact with an infected dog and then your dog shortly thereafter. Demodectic mange is a lot less transmissible than Sarcoptic mange.

Sarcoptic Mange And Its Treatment
What’s the best treatment I can do at home for sarcoptic mange? I was given promethrin by a good friend who owns a ranch. She uses it on her dogs and livestock (different dilutions depending on the animal).
Does it really work? Is there something else?
As long as your dog is not a collie, you be much better off with an ivermectin treatment. Why not order Revolution on line (one dose will cure your dog). I suspect the Promethrin will nothing against mange. Good luck.
What Is Sarcoptic Mange?
Sarcoptic mange (technically is is called notoedric mange in cats), commonly know as scabies, is caused by an external parasite that burrows deep into the skin. Sarcoptic mange is contagious to other pets and occurs in many different animals. Sarcoptic mange causes intense itchiness, especially affecting the ear margins, elbows, and face. People can pick up this disease from their pet and show symptoms of itching, but it goes away by itself in a short time and does not require treatment in most cases.Sarcoptic mange is highly contagious between dogs. It is found all over the World. Sarcoptic mites are near-microscopic, eight-legged creatures closely related to ticks. Their entire life cycle of three to four weeks is spent on the dog or another host.

Our lab has the mange. We took him to the vet about a month ago and got a treatment for him, but it has come back, and Im not sure that it ever went away completely.Does anyone know of a home remedy that will cure the mange?? It cost us 140 bucks at the vet last time, and we need to save the cash this time if possible. I kind of feel like the money was wasted last time because like I said, Im not sure if it went away or not.
CLOVICAT…you dont have to get on your soapbox and preach about everybody’s ideas…..they gave me an answer, not you. If your so concerned with my decision, email me. Im not an idiot and I dont require constant adult interventions on Yahoo answers. Mind your business sweetie…..these people are giving answers……bug off and leave ‘em alone.
this is pretty tough, and it takes a while, but it works
1-coat the dog with a thick coat of petroleum jelly (Vaseline)
2-let that stay on him 12 hours
(the washing it off is the hard part)
the Vaseline will both smother the disease and moisturize the skin
3-before adding any water to the dog lather his Vaseline covered fur with dawn dish washing liquid, it will take a LOT and u can’t use it around his eyes, he will just have to deal with a greasy head for a while
4-fill bath with warm water, a full box of baking soda & 1/2 cup of white vinegar per gallon of water used (you can estimate)
5-rinse and rinse and rinse….make sure the vinegar and baking soda solution gets all over the dog
6-drain the bath and rinse more, it will take a lot of water to get rid off all of the vaseline and dawn detergent
after doing this keep oil (baby oil or cocoa butter oil) on the dog for a couple of weeks
it will be close to impossible getting all of the vaseline out of the dog’s fur, but it won’t hurt him at all, it will help him…the vinegar is very important also, vinegar is a natural degreaser and it kills bacteria….the baking soda works like a scratch pad, a scrubbing agent that when you mix with vinegar and dishwashing liquid does wonders when cleaning
don’t use regular doggy shampoo on him for a while either
you can do this as often as needed
when you use this you also won’t have to worry about fleas or mites
