Was wondering if anyone else has used Neem oil to treat sarcoptic mange?My puppy had the stuff when I picked him up and after 3 dippings with chemicals and very little success I found this on the net.It worked! I mixed a couple ounces with a bottle of baby shampoo,and another ounce in a bottle of hypo-allergenic baby lotion.Shampooed once a week,and after he dried I put the lotion on.I think I actually used more than was neccessary and maybe for a little longer than neccessary(3 weeks) but when I took him back the Doc said his skin looked great.It is insecticidal,antifungal,and an excellent miticide.Worth checking into if you are looking for a non-chemical alternative.IMO
The usual treatment for Sarcoptic Mange are shots given by the vet with the drug called Ivermectin. Some dog breeds do not tolerate the drug very well, I am not sure on which, have to ask your vet, they use this dip called Lyme Sulfur (it really stinks and if the dog has white coat, it may stain it but it works great). Do not really know any other ways.
