First it is necessary to confirm your dog has mange.  There are many skin problems that present with similar signs.  Also there are several different types of mange and it is important to identify the type to treat appropriately.  Other skin concerns are fleas, ringworm, allergies, and skin infections.  Your veterinarian will confirm a diagnosis and start appropriate treatment.  Without a diagnosis you will waste time and money on ineffective treatment.

Not everyone has the money to pay for vet visits especially with all of the lay-offs and job cuts. We all may love our pets, but a lot of us have kids that just have to come first

There are two different types of mange demo and there is another kind I'm not for-sure how its spelled but my dog had mange and I used this formula its borax soap, peroxide, and water. You bath the dog in the regular shampoo normally then mix the borax peroxide and the water all together, then you put it all over the dog or (cat) DO NOT WASH IT OFF! After it is all over them let them air dry. Do it for three days in a row then ounce a week in about a month your dog will look much better! Its working for my dog. I did it for a couple of days and its working, after a week (if you have a place for your dog to be outside) I covered him in baby oil all over him, because the oil will suffocate the mites and they can't breath so they die off, keep him out there for 3-4 days and my dogs hair was growing back in no time. I also added 1/8 tablespoon to 2 liters of his drinking water.

Hopefully this helps you good-luck!

Baby oil sometimes smothers them out. The only other home remedy is oil for cars. Cover their entire body with the oil, but keep away from face, and let it stay on them for a couple of days, then give them a bath, and see if there's a difference. Good luck.

If you do not have the money for a vet, most feed stores and pet supply stores have shampoo for mange. Also my husband and I used burnt motor oil and poured it on the dogs, that cured it for them, just keep it away from their eyes

There are many types of mange in dogs like scabies and red mange. Mites of red mange are usually present in small number in all dogs without any harm. These mites when increase in number can cause itching and other symptoms of mange. There are some triggering factors like stress, or inheritance that can trigger growth of red mange mites and cause symptoms. This type of mange is not contagious.

Scabies is another type of mange. This mange is contagious because it can spread from infected dog o healthy one. Symptoms of all types of mange in dogs are itching, red bumps and hair loss in patches.

All types of mange in dogs is treated by use of insecticides that are easily available from the pharmacies and pet stores. Majority of these medicines are over the counter.

Red mange in dogs is not contagious because this type of mange is caused by the mites which are usually present on the skin of the dogs without harm. Overgrowth of these mites can cause symptoms of red mange. Your puppy might be having juvenile generalized red mange. Treatment of this type of mange is by use of insecticide like

1. Amitraz dips
2. Milbemycin
3. Ivermectin

Cost of these medicines is different in different countries.

Have you tried to contact the SPCA, or Friends of Pets? Maybe they can help you out somehow. If they say that they might be able to help, then make sure that you have a muzzle to put on the pup, not that I like them, but for their protection, they might be more willing to help you to take care of the pup. In the meantime, make sure that she has clean bedding, and other areas that she might hang out in, and keep them clean. I don't know of any home remedies that could help, but if you talk to the SPCA, maybe they can recommend something to you. Hope this helps, good luck.
