When looking for a cure for my Doby with Demodex Mange, I came across two products that appeared too good to be true. The first one from a site called PetsBestRx.com . They sold a package that appeared to be top notch. A spray applied to the skin to use on day 1 that is comprised of essential oils, they say that these oils have been used for decades to treat Sarcoptic and Demodex (Red) Mange.
The first time I used the product it appeared to be a powerful spray, the hairless areas that had bumps everywhere were subdued quite a bit by the product. Then I applied the cream the next day and it appeared to soothe the dogs skin. My dog wasn’t scratching much at all when using these products, which was quite nice. I’m sure this product could eliminate a case of localized Mange easily, but it appears to be over-matched when used as the only treatment for the disorder when you are facing Generalized Mange.
The PetsBestRx product is worth a try, but only after you try the next product mentioned due to it only costing $15.
When compared to the PetsBestRx product this appears to just be a less refined replica of the Sulfinex Cream. The Nustock smells deplorable and if your dog sleeps in your room you just might jump out the window. It is guaranteed to work or your money back but who is ever going to go through the trouble of returning it if it doesn’t work due to shipping repackaging and time spent. The product did soothe the symptoms of mange in my dog better than anything I have used. I believe this product would easily handle and case of Localized Mange but again this product didn’t eliminate my pups generalized mange, the disease continually progressed. Everyone should know that the pup was also receiving ivermectin bi-weekly injections during treatments with both brands mentioned here. Nustock also has a shampoo availalve on its site that appears to be quite promising, I believe that will be the next product I try to assist my dog in beating this horrible issue.
I don’t want to discourage users from trying these products. They are non-toxic, non-immune system impeding treatments that I believe should be the first defense, due to others solutions like Ivermectin, Mitaban and other products that can adversely affect some breeds and can in some cases kill a dog. Ivermectin is usually safe when instructed by a vet. All herding breeds should stay away from ivermectin!
