Mange in dogs is a fairly common skin condition, mostly seen in immunocompromised or abandoned pets. The symptoms of mange are fairly general and can indicate a number of things, so always have any unusual changes in your pet’s behavior checked by your vet. While curing mange is on the cheap side, as far as pet healthcare goes, severe or untreated infections can require secondary treatments for symptoms like skin infections.Solutions of sulfur and lime are used as a rinse or dip every 5-7 days to treat mange (demodex) infections. Treatment is repeated for several weeks until skin scrapings have been clear of mites for at least a month. Sulfurated lime is safe to use on dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens at a dilution of four ounces in one gallon of water. If this concentration does not clear the mite infection, the concentration of sulfurated lime can be doubled to eight ounces per gallon of water.In pets with generalized mange infection, those that are less than a year old have a 30-50% likelihood of clearing the infection even though it is widespread. These pets clear the infection because their immune systems kick into gear and they do not necessarily need medical treatment. For pets that do not spontaneously clear an infection, a prescription medication such as sulfurated lime or amitraz ( for dogs) is used.Puppies with demodectic mange may suffer relapses, as a dog’s immune system doesn’t mature until 18 months of age. If your pet has an autoimmune disease – like lupus or hemolytic anemia – the condition could reoccur, so it’s important to maintain your pet’s treatment plan.
