7. Lemon


Lemon is commonly used for treating several skin problems in humans, but what people don’t realize is that it is great for animals as well.

Being highly acidic, lemon juice can successfully kill the microscopic parasites. It even helps heal the damaged skin.

  1. Cut up 1 lemon (along with the peel) into small pieces.
  2. Add the lemon pieces to a pan filled with water.
  3. Bring the water to a nice boil.
  4. Turn off the stove, cover the pan and allow the solution to steep overnight.
  5. In the morning, apply the mixture to your pet’s coat using a sponge.
  6. Do this once daily.

Note: Do not apply lemon juice directly on open scabs, as it can cause a burning sensation.


8. Food-Grade Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous earth

A mange infestation can be controlled by giving food-grade diatomaceous earth internally. It’s a nontoxic, safe substance for dogs to consume.

  • For medium-sized dogs, add 1 tablespoon per day of food-grade diatomaceous earth to their food. For small dogs and puppies, keep the dose to 1 teaspoon per day only. Do this for about a month.
  • Prepare a dry powder with equal amounts of food-grade diatomaceous earth, neem powder and yarrow power. Rub this powder mixture into your dog’s coat twice daily.
  • Simply applying a paste of food-grade diatomaceous earth and a little water on your pet’s fur will also help. You can use it twice daily and need not rinse it off.

Note: Avoid getting diatomaceous earth around your dog’s eyes and mouth, as it can irritate the mucosa. Make sure you use food-grade diatomaceous earth, not the one meant for yard and garden.

  1. My Boston terrier mix was covered with mange… Hair so thin you could see his skin everywhere, and sores and after reading a few articles I put together my own routine, and it worked!
    Three weeks later he was MUCH better and 5 weeks later he’s good as new.
    Here’s what I did. For three Saturdays in a row I bathed him with Head N Shoulders Shampoo, then while he was still wet poured about half a bottle of hydrogen peroxide down his back (avoiding face), then… Rubbed him down with olive oil.
    On the 4th Saturday he only got the Olive oil rubbed on him.
    Hope this helps someone else too.

  2. I have a 2 year old staffie and she won’t let you touch the end of her tail I’ve had her since she was 12 weeks old and she’s always been like this she can be nervous at times also I’ve always had staffs and it’s d first 1 like this someone said it could be mange cos she keeps licking it anyone any ideas
    Thanks yours Mick

  3. for no.1 combination of hydrogen peroxide and borax is it safe if my dogs lick it on her fur and skin? also for no.2 can we instead use a blower to dry it instead of air dry or sun dry

    1. yes its safe. The safe dilution wont make sweetie sick. I used this combo on all my pets. No issues. No dont blow dry. Blow drying speed the process. You want the skin to absorb.

  4. I started today. Mixed apple cider vinegar with water. Sprayed it all over my puppy. He kept scratching and licking the infected area. What does that mean? Does it sting for him? Should I already bathe him? He looks like he was suffering.
