    Oh come on!

    The skin scraping needed to diagnose mange is about $ 50. You mean to tell me you can’t afford $ 50? What a load of cr*p.

    In addition, the treatment for mange ranges from pennies a day and up.

    Cancel your Internet service and take care of your poor dog. Untreated mange DOES cause severe suffering and eventually death.

    Without a vets diagnosis after results from the tests the vet will run, you do not know if your dog has one of the two types of mange (treated differently) or if it has ‘hot’ spots due to the time of year.

    Demodemic mange is usually fairly easy to treat and cure. Sarcoptic mange is serious and can have dire results if not treated properly after being diagnosed by the vet.

    Hot spots also are easy to treat but you need to have the vet determine if you are dealing with one of the two types of mange or hot spots. For the sake of your dog, take it to a vet. It could result in major infections and severe health problems if you try to treat this at home without the vets diagnosis and correct medications and dosage for your dog.

    The only home remedy that will actually work is picking up the phone and calling the vet so the dog can get a skin scrape.

    Not that expensive and without it there is no way to know which type of mange he has.

    Mange is a caused by mites something like crabs on humans. Shave the dog and wash in with an appropriate shampoo/insecticide per instructions on the container.

    you cant even properly diagnose your dog at home.. so how do you even know its mange? There are 2 types of mange also, each of which has their own treatment.

    The dog needs a VET to get proper diagnosis and treatment. If you cant afford a vet, then rehome the dog to someone who can.

    Funny how people manage to afford internet and other luxuries, but can never afford to get their pets proper care.

    You need to surrender the dog to a local breed-specific rescue, shelter, or pet rescue.

    There are two types of mange so you better be sure which one you are treating before you go for any home remedies. I suggest calling the Humane Society or local ASPCA to see if they can offer you any low cost treatments. Mange can be deadly.
