Looks like my foster Cameron's potential adopter flaked out on him and will not be adopting him as planned. Cameron will be staying with us a little longer until he's adopted out. In the meantime, I would like to try home remedies to help treat his mange. Currently, he's on Ivermectin, Cephalaxin and Fluconazole. And he's bathe twice a week, alternating between Peroxiderm shampoo and HexaChlor-K shampoo. What course of home remedy treatment should I follow given the different meds and shampoo he's currently on. Thanks!

The Boxer I recently got into TBR had terrible sores all over her but not mange it was a bacterial and fungal infection brought on by bad allergies and no treatment. Anyways I slathered her with coconut oil and the staff did also at the shelter it helped her a lot even the Vet was surprised. She was on Cephalexin and Fluconazole too. If you have some I would try that.

I havent personally ever dealt with mange but if I was going to try any of the ones listed I would try to the Neem oil, Lavender oil and Almond oil combo. Of course if you do that I would skip the coconut oil.

If you want to try something internally I would go for the licorice root. It works like prednisone but without the side effects. I gave it to Gouda daily.

BTW sorry that adopter backed out on Cameron. He's a handsome boy someone else I'm sure will step up!

I have a question on the oil combo - wouldn't that make him 'oily' all the time? He stays indoor and I'm concern about him leaving oil stains on the furniture and such. About the coconut oil, can he take it orally or should that be applied topically? I would also like to know if the lemon solution Kari (2manydogs) suggested is ok to use every other day? In between bath time (I give him a bath twice a week), he smells funky and it stinks up the sheets that cover the furniture. Because of that, I now wash the dogs' sheets twice a week. Thanks for all your patience!

I have never used the neem oil combo but I have heard from others it works so I cant say how oily he would be. I have used almond oil on my own skin and it is kind of messy it takes a bit to soak in. Maybe not put much on at a time?

I have only used Coconut oil all over the body on that one dog from the shelter. My personal experience was it soaked in rather fast but she had really dry cracked skin. I have used it topically on my cat and on Gouda and Kippah but just on certain spots that needed attention and it soaked right in. For him I would use it topically. He will lick the coconut oil off in certain spots Im sure and get some internally that way but its still ok to give orally too if you want just start out slowly maybe 1 teaspoon to start with and work your way up.

Maybe you could put it on him and put his coat on afterwards to kind of protect the furniture until its soaked in enough?

Im not sure about the stuff Kari is referring to and how often you could use it. I would guess it wouldnt hurt to use it every other day but in truth I would have to do more research or maybe Kari could answer that question. Maybe try her solution first since it isnt oily and see how that works for him before trying the others?

I personally give Kippah (and did with Gouda) coconut oil daily with her food once per day.

Callie gets an Echinacea pill every other day. For a while I also added Apple Cider Vinegar to her food, but haven't figured out yet how to disguise it while feeding raw. I really wanted to try the almond oil but couldn't find it locally.

Do you have a GNC nearby? They carry almond oil or you could always order via amazon.com

Edited to add: If one wants to give an immune boosting herb I feel Astragalus is the best to give. You can even find that at GNC

I'll look around for a GNC and if not, definitely heading to amazon. I haven't looked around for it now that we've gotten it under control since there's still the slight chance she grows out of it. Right now the only thing she's dealing with is itching so I'm trying to get that calmed down. I'll look into the Astragalus, too! Thanks!
