Question by ATX_512CHicA: I got a mangy mut that needs help.?
Jk, I have a pit bull who has recently encountered “depodemic” mange….(something like that) and I need to find a solution that I can buy over the counter to fix the problem….Im thinking about “Hi-yield lime and sulfur spray” but I do not know how to correctly apply it and want to know if anyone has ever heard or used this stuff on their dogs. I was told by the feed store people buy it for mange all the time and it is commonly used for plants….Any suggestions?? No I do not have the money to pay for these outrageous vet bills and know what I need to do and what she has, i just need the knowledge on how to do it, thanx!

Dogs can die or get PTS from out of control Demodetic Mange even in 2010.
Live on eggs and noodles for a week and see your local vet for something that actually might work.

Demodectic Mange Mites
Your question is if it works on demodectic mange, yes, it does, I’m a big user of Tea Tree Oil also.
To treat mange, wash your dog or cat using a mild soap and water, then clip or shave excess hair. Soak a cotton puff with tea tree oil and saturate on specific areas twice daily until mange disappears. For overall application, mix 1 teaspoon tea tree oil with 1/3 cup of water, place in a plant mister and spray the mange areas.
Store bought thing that works great on Demodectic mange is Promeris.
Demodectic mange, also called “demodicosis,” is caused by a microscopic mite of theDemodex genus. Three species of Demodex mites have been identified in dogs: Demodex canis, Demodex gatoi, and Demodex injai. The most common mite of demodectic mange isDemodex canis. All dogs raised normally by their mothers possess this mite as mites are transferred from mother to pup via cuddling during the first few days of life. Most dogs live in harmony with their mites, never suffering any consequences from being parasitized. If, however, conditions change to upset the natural equilibrium (such as some kind of suppression of the dog’s immune system), the Demodex mites may “gain the upper hand.” The mites proliferate and can cause serious skin disease

My 6 month old puppy has scabies around her eyes. I didn’t really notice it at first but now i saw it is also around her mouth. And my other 5 month old puppy catched it too now she has it too in her eyes and around her mouth (
I have appointment in my vet on monday….
But what should i do ( is there any way really to control it? Will their hair grow back again?
Here is a very good link on the different sorts of mange, who gets them and how they are treated:
My dog had sarcoptic mange when I brought her home from the shelter and she was treated with ivermectin. All her hair grew back, yes.
Dogs with demodectic mange will also get their hair back if you are successful in treating the mange.
