Works Wonders! My husband and I adopted our first puppy together from a local animal shelter. The poor things had tons of problems, among them demodectic mange. I was skeptical when my husband was explaining to me what all we needed to do to treat our new puppy, but after just one treatment, she started looking much better. After her 3rd, you can't tell she ever had mange. Yes, the product smells bad, but our dog hasn't suffered any adverse reactions, and she is much healthier than when we first got her! 12/02/2011
Max is doing great We adopted Max almost 3 years ago, he was badly abused and in terrible condition. Max spent 3 weeks with the Vet and had been diagnosed with Demodectic Mange. We were told to treat him with Ivomec injections. Not trusting the advise I did some research and found that he should have been put on Mitaban not Ivomec. Keeping a long story short we have only dipped Max once and it has already made a huge improvement. Thank you Pet Meds You are the Best. 03/22/2010
Isabella has had only one dip so far. She has a very delicate system so we have to take it slow with her. The amount used for her is broken down into very small portions as to not overwhelm her system. She shows great results on the top of her head. The day after her dip is the must watch carefully day. She sleeps alot and is very hot as the infection comes out of her body. It works very well but just remember every dog is different with the help from your vet and you observing your pet find what works best for your pet. They are all different!!! That what makes them special. 02/07/2010
Mitaban Dip use on my puppy Our pug puppy Cholo was diagnosed with mange 2 weeks ago, we used the Mitaban dip for the first time last week. However after reading all the reviews and the warning from our vet about the very dangerous side effects we were scared. We mixed the medicine w/ the 2 gallons of water as instructed and the smell is intoxicating, stronger than gasoline!! We could not bring ourselves to cover him in this stuff and instead I used cotton balls to wipe him down with the medicine, concentrating on the really bad areas. So far it seems to be working, the spots have dried up considerably. We have continued to give him regular baths with his medicated shampoo and cleaning his wrinkles with Witch Hazel. Good Luck!! 11/22/2009
mitaban dip my dog jellybean had generalized mange since she was 12 weeks old.at first we didnt mind all the spots she had and by the time we took her to the vet her infection was really bad.we put her on the mitaban dip and she was fine the first 2 doses.a day after her 3rd dip she had an allergic reaction that we ended up taking her to the per ER (which is not cheap).the ER vet told us to discontinue the medication right away and so we did and her spots just went away.anyway after a month it flared up again and we took her for a check up.our vet prescribed oral ivermectin which we gave daily in tapered doses.a month after religiously giving her the medication she was fine.she's been on it for the past 3 months and her coat is much improved like she never had it.from time to time she would have a tiny patch on her back but it goes away.we spent a lot of time effort and money in managing her condition.i guess she always had a weak immune system.we never figured out what triggers her stress reactions but we try to provied her needs.she is a happy dog and even when she was really sick she never showed it.we luv her dearly and we're willing to do everything to make her better. 11/05/2008

Collie puppy

I have a collie puppy that is 7 months old, I was told collie's can not be treated with some meds for the mange that it could have bad side affects and possible kill my puppy, this is not a border collie, it is a lassie type collie, he weighs around 60 pounds. The vet has been giving us a medicine used for the fleas, it did look some better but is getting worse now. Our vet is still trying to find out what is safe to use on collies, his mange is mostly on his legs and up above his eyes and under his chin, the vet tested to see which kind of mange he has and it is demodectic mange, please give me an answer as soon as possible, Thank you

Answer: 
It is important that your pet maintain good health and keep its immune sytem working at its best.
You can help your pet by feeding a good brand of dog food, making sure the pet is parasite and worm free, and keeping vaccines up to date.
Your veterinarian will determine the best medicine based on the type of demodectic mange that your pet has. You can ask your veterinarian about a prescription for Mitiban dip.

Answer: 
Demodectic mange is caused by Demodex canis, a type of mite that is usually only a problem for the pet when the immune system can't keep the mites under control. Puppies and elderly dogs are more susceptible to this type since they can have weaker immune systems.
Sarcoptic mange, also called Scabies, is caused by a different mite, Sarcoptes scablei canis. This type of mite burrows into the skin and lays eggs. This causes the pet to itch, which makes them scratch and lick themselves. This can lead to crusting and sometimes infection. Sarcoptic mange can be contagious, so the pet should be kept away from other animals.The diagnosis can be made by your veterinarian and the treatment will depend on which type the pet has. Sarcoptic mange can be contagious, so the pet should be kept away from other animals.

Answer: 
No, you do not need to treat other pets as demodex mites are NOT transferable. It is on every pet, it is the immune system is not killing them off as they should.
