Do you notice lesions, patchy or crusty skin, rashes, and sores at the spot of the itching? It could be a sign that your four-legged-friend is suffering from dog mange.
It's usually caused by Sarcoptic mites that live on the skin's surface or Demodectic mites that live in the hair follicles. This might lead to your dog scratching excessively, sometimes even to the point of causing tears. We genuinely empathize with the discomfort your beloved companion is experiencing as you observe them go through this.
Before jumping into potentially costly veterinary treatments, you might find it beneficial to explore our all-natural solution for your pet's well-being. We have two products that we recommend to alleviate the issue. One is called Dog Mange Treatment. The other is called Ear Infection & Itch Relief. We recommend this combination of care because many times mites that cause mange start in the ears. You can get more information about each product and the condition below.

While you can treat mange at home, it's helpful to get a definitive diagnosis of the condition. To treat dog mange at home we recommend isolating your dog from other pets. Then trying our Dog Mange Treatment in combination with our Ear Infection & Itch Relief to alleviate the issue. For immediate topical relief try these home remedies:
Olive Oil - Cleaning the ear with olive oil may smother the mites, and it also loosens the debris to make it easier to clean away. Mites hatch every 4 days, so do this every 3 days for 2 weeks to get rid of them.
Garlic Oil - Mites are known to hate sulfur, therefore the sulfur in garlic oil makes a good anti-parasitic remedy. It may also help with secondary issues such as bacterial infections or fungus.
Green Tea - Green tea is a great natural antiseptic to clean the ears and get rid of mites.
If your pet doesn't respond to our combination therapy after a few weeks of treatment, then you should follow-up with a veterinarian.
How do dogs get mange?
Dogs can get mange from mites. Sarcoptic mange is contagious, spreading through direct contact with an infected animal, while Demodectic mange is often linked to a weakened immune system. Mites can also be present in the environment, leading to infection through indirect contact. Maintaining your dog's overall health is key in preventing and managing mange.
What is sarcoptic mange?
Sarcoptic mange, also known as scabies, is a contagious skin condition in dogs caused by the Sarcoptes scabiei mite. These mites burrow into the skin, causing intense itching, redness, and hair loss. Sarcoptic mange is highly contagious and can spread through direct contact with an infected animal.
Is there mange medicine for dogs?
Absolutely! Conventional medications, including topical applications, dips, and oral treatments prescribed by veterinarians, are available for treating mange in dogs. However, we suggest using our all-natural remedies as a first-line of defense. One is called Dog Mange Treatment. The other is called Ear Infection & Itch Relief. We recommend this combination of care because many times mites that cause mange start in the ears.
What is demodectic mange?
Demodectic mites, specifically Demodex canis, are microscopic parasites that naturally inhabit the hair follicles and sebaceous glands of dogs. While present in small numbers on most dogs, an overgrowth or imbalance can lead to demodectic mange, characterized by hair loss, redness, and scaly skin. Unlike sarcoptic mange, demodectic mange is not highly contagious.
