Mange is a class of skin disease that affects a huge number of animals that’s caused by parasitic mites, it causes infections, pain, irritations and in very rare cases death.
There are many chemical compounds you can use to treat mange successfully in dogs and cats alike, the most famous ones are Sulfurated lime and Selamectin, however in this post, I’m going to show you how to use neem oil for mange successfully, but first, I need to give you a warning:
Using neem oil in very severe cases of mange is simply foolish and will result in serious complications that can expose your pets to high risks!
This means that you can only use neem oil for benign cases of mange, especially when it’s just starting.
First, you need to understand that mange is caused by parasites that will develop only if the immune system cannot defend the body successfully, this means that there are two means to get rid of mange using neem oil, the first one relies on taking neem oil orally for a few days and the second one relies on applying neem oil topically.
Neem oil has been proven scientifically to increase the immune system’s functions and also to be an extremely beneficial and powerful anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiparasitic, antiviral and even antifungal compound, this means that it can be used for both treating mange externally and for increasing the immune system which is going to help get rid of this parasite from the inside and much more rapidly.
How much neem oil to use in order to get rid of mange?
It all depends, if you are dealing with mange in a cat, you have to only give it no more than three drops a day orally for a maximum of five consecutive days, however, if you are dealing with a dog, you have to give it neem oil orally for a maximum of seven days while not exceeding a quarter of a teaspoon a day.
How to apply neem oil topically?
The best thing to do is to invest in a glass sprayer, certain types of plastics are going to contaminate neem oil and make it toxic for the skin, that’s why you have to only use glass sprayers.
Should you mix neem oil with certain ingredients?
Absolutely not, if you are dealing with skin problems in animals, do not use other essential oils, they can be very harmful for their skin and can cause different troubles when breathing, so, only use neem oil that’s organic.
How long should you keep using neem oil topically?
Do not exceed fifteen days , daily, and don’t apply a lot, only a few teaspoons, however with a dog, you can extend the treatment for up to one month and if you don’t see any results, please stop because you may be dealing with severe mange that’s really very difficult to heal and treat with homemade recipes.
