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

So took my puppy to the vet yesterday for persistant itching and loss of hair. I was worried and very scared for her. See she was a rescue dog from a kennel, so we don’t know what she has previously been in contact with. Well to our surprise she had Sarcoptic mange or Scabies. Luckily my husband nor I have this, but I was really upset. The vet looked at me like I was a diseased person, she had the vet tech and some of the receptionist look at it. I kept hearing things like, ew thats gross, etc. I thought it was very very VERY unprofessional. Also the vet treated my dog like she was diseased and disgust. As I have been doing research on it, it seems it isn’t an uncommon thing and she could have gotten it from anywhere.
My question is would you continue taking your animal to this vet or would you have take her somewheres else? Also ha anyone else dealt with Sarcoptic mange, because she was treated last night and is still itching, I have heard you can give them Benydryl for the itching
Yes they did a skin scraping, thats what they were looking at under the microscope.
Well am not 100% sure what kind of mange it is, all that stupid woman told em was she has scabies. Gave me a lyme sulfer dip, and some clavamox and sent me on my way. She didn’t explain shit to me. So I looked around on the internet to see what she looked like more. Just a guess. But she lost hair on the tip of her ears and has some scabs on her belly and back legs.
I would find a new vet. I diagnosed sarcoptic mange twice in the last month. I did not or hope I did not make the client feel that they had caused the problem or that they or their pet was dirty. Sarcoptic mange mites can be really difficult to find and I was happy to have found the source of the problem Sarcoptic mange is very treatable and the itching should stop soon. Sarcoptes can be picked up at a kennel, groomer, etc. You should treat all the dogs in the household. Legally I can’t tell you to give your dog benydryl because I am a vet . I can suggest a soothing bath like with an oatmeal based dog shampoo. There other ways of treating sarcoptes than oral ivermectin. We use Revolution with great success. The oral ivermectins may be effective but some dogs object to the taste. In response to one of the other post I find it far easier to effectively treat sarcoptic mange than demodectic mange.
Options For Treating Mange On Dogs
I want to try the chemical dip.
ANSWER: My dog had mange, and the CRAP, I mean CRAP that the vet gave me made it more worse and it started to spread fast. But the biggest thing was that my dog almost died because it was so rough on him!
The ivermectin didn’t do anything to heal his sores from the scratching. And if you pet has sores, you don’t want to dip him because he will be in a lot of pain.
But I searched online and I came aross the website called petsbestrx mange treatments and its the mitactin spray and it cleaned up my dogs mange fast.
Its only 15 dollars for a 2 oz spray.
Treating Mange on Dogs with Ivermectin
Ivermectin is a commonly prescribed medication that is often used to treat parasites in dogs. Ivermectin is not FDA-approved in the United States, United Kingdom, or Australia for treating scabies, but off-label use is increasing due to cost, convenience, and ease of administration. Ivermectin, the active ingredient in Ivomec, works by disrupting nerve impulses in parasites.
It binds to glutamate-gated chloride ion channels which occur in invertebrate nerve and muscle cells which leads to an increase in the permeability of the cell membrane, thereby paralyzing and killing the invaders Ivermectin is one of the few medicines that vets regularly prescribe for dogs with demodectic mange.
Ivermectin is used to cure demodectic mange by killing the mites, and it does its job very well. The problem only starts when dog owners and even vets start treating it as a wonderdrug due to a lack of understanding, and depend on it exclusively.
Ivermectin has also been used to treat ear mites and as a heartworm preventative in dogs. This medication is only available by a prescription from a veterinarian. Ivermectin can cause an allergic reaction in some dogs, which is a life-threatening medical emergency. The symptoms associated with an allergic reaction are wheezing, difficulty breathing, swelling of the lips, swelling of the eyes and swelling of the tongue.
Ivermectin is not useful against tapeworm. If you find tapeworm in a goat’s stool, use Panacur or Safeguard to get rid of it.
How To Apply:
The drug is easy to administer, and results are usually seen within a short period of time. It’s been proven many times over that Ivermectin is successful in curing the skin problem, but that doesn’t mean it can be considered as the de-facto solution for it.
The use of Ivermectin does has some limitations and will not work with all dogs. Consult a veterinarian for the appropriateness of the treatment.
