Get Mange Mites Off Your Dog Fast

Is your pet suffering from too much itching? Is it lethargic and irritable? Have you noticed that your pet is eating less but drinking more than the usual? And even if you are regularly giving it a bath, you notice that it still smells bad. Have you also noticed that your pet is not sleeping properly and upon close inspection might be losing weight? Your pet might be afflicted with mange.

Mange is a disease caused by a parasitic mite. Generally speaking, there are five common kinds of mange that affect pets - the itch mange or the Sarcoptic mange, the red or puppy mange or Demodectic mange, the cat mange or Notoedric mange, the walking dandruff or Cheyletiellosis and the ear mites.

Treatment is dependent on the kind of mange your pet is suffering from. There are various treatment options that are possible, but most pet owners rely on natural treatment. The trick to really managing mange is to find the root cause of the problem and deal with it.

There are also methods that you can do to ease the symptoms such as constantly giving your pets a bath using warm water with the ideal pet shampoo and conditioner. Note that it is vital to keep your pets clean at all costs to avoid further infections. It might also be helpful to give your pet a bath in a solution of water with one percent hydrogen peroxide. Brush their fur regularly also to remove the mites and dead skin. Add supplements and vitamins to your pet’s food. Include one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar to your pet’s meal to help reduce the mites. Keep the ears of your pets clean also as this can also be a target for mange. Itching can be relieved by massaging with Vaseline.
