I bought a pitbull off a woman and she told me my dog has had its shots but now she has the mange real bad. we are not nasty people and my inlaws dog has it. So i think she might have come in contact with it through her dog. But anyways her eyes are swolen shut and her hair is almost gone. It got really bad this week. we didnt know what was going on at first but now know its the mange. I was told to dip her in oil, and mix sulfur and vasiline. i bought some happy jack stuff to dip her in, but shes getting worse. i just started using yesterday. Does anyone know any fast ways to cure her? I dont want her to die.

A mixture of sulphur, burnt motor oil and kerosene. Make a thick paste, rub it on good keeping it away from the eyes. This should dry the virus or whatever it is that causes the mange. My uncles used it for years on their dogs and when were kids we had a shot of it also.

I have two pit bulls and i am neither a coward or a drug dealer. The breed has nothing to do with the fact that some a--holes don't deserve the right to own dogs and make their dogs mean. i let my shi-tzu and my 6 yr old daughter play withthem and they don't do anything but play.

I get the mange on my palms every time I whack it. I guess Mom was right after all.
How embarassing.

Nothing is worse than Michael Prick. I caught Satan's chlamidia from him. All I got from my little Scruffy was itchy scratchy scales. I just loves him. bff

There is a prescription drug that will CURE mange in dogs. It is called Ivermectin, which had been developed for use in cattle. My dog had mange so bad I took him in to have him put down when the vet told me he could cure it, and he did, and that was 6 years ago. It is expensive and must be put in the food for three months to kill all eggs, etc., but it was worth it. Ask a vet about it.

Wow, I can't believe people spend all that money on motor oil and sulfur. I can't imagine how horrible and unhealthy for the dog that can be. There are two types of mange: demidex and sarcoptic. Demidex is very hard to treat (would need ivermectin or special weekly dips). Sarcoptic is the same as "crabs" or "scabies." It is contagious to us. That is very easy to treat: go to the veterinarian and get a dose of Revolution. It is a flea, ear mite, heartworm, intestinal parasite, and mange medicine. It goes on the back of the neck. You use it once a month (like Advantage or Frontline). It is not too expensive either. I mean really...who would put motor oil on a dog for crying out loud?!
