Whenever people think of mange, the first thing that comes to mind is, “That looks terrible, they should get some medical help quick!” They’re not wrong too – generalized demodectic mange is a terrible sight to behold. In fact, dogs with a severe case of ‘red mange’ would have been written off as a hopeless case and euthanized just fifty years ago.

Nowadays, dog owners seek professional help when their dog is down with mange. Now, that’s definitely the right thing to do. After all, the vet is the most capable person to turn to when the mange has ravaged most, if not all of your dog’s skin.

But does that mean it’s impossible to treat the mange by yourself? Of course not! There are many reports of people experiencing success with some home remedies for demodectic mange, so it’s definitely something to look into.

Here’s a few examples of what people have tried in their quest to get rid of the skin problem:

- Lemon Juice

- Motor Oil

- Aloe Vera

- Petroleum Jelly (Vaseline)

- Borax

- Natural Herbs

Do keep in mind that the list above is only what people have recommended. It doesn’t actually mean that they all work, and frankly, I’m very skeptical of a few on that list. But there are some that most definitely do work, without any additional help from medical drugs.

In the following weeks, I will post more on the types of home remedies that any dog owner can use for their dog’s demodectic mange, and try to assess them based on how well they perform, so do check back every so often to learn more about them.  If they’ve already been posted, the links should most likely appear below.

Oh, and there’s always the Canine Care Guide to Demodectic Mange ebook if you need a good home remedy fast. Good luck!
