my cat has sarcoptic mange, and is passing it to me, i know it can only last a few days on me, but i dont like the discomfort, anyone know any home remedy’s for both me, and my cat?
You need to take the cat to the vet. He will just keep passing it on to you and others that visit the house.
Yes, they do but the mites are of a different form.
In dogs, the mites are known as Demodex canis. In cats, they are called Demodex cati.
Demodex cati is a mite that can infect cats of all ages or breed. It appears to occur in a higher frequency in Burmese and Siamese cats. There are two main forms of the disease, localized and generalized. The localized form is the more common, with symptoms of hair loss with scaly skin on the eyelids, head, ears, and neck of the cat. The lesions may itch and be red and irritated. The generalized form of the disease has similar lesions, but may also affect the body and legs.
How to Control Mange?
Many mammals suffer from a skin disease known as mange. Typically, it’s caused by a mite burrowing under the skin. Mange seems to be most common in cats and dogs, although other animals can get it. There are several types of mange but, thankfully, just a few affect your pets. The mites cannot be seen with the naked eye but their effects can be seen quite clearly. Some mange appears to be dandruff and has a short lifespan.
- Notoedric Mange: Scaly appearance on the skin that begins on the ears and spreads to affect the entire body without treatment. This type is more prevalent among dogs, cats, rabbits, and humans.
- Sarcoptic Mange: This type is most common in dogs and mostly attacks areas without hair. It’s quite itchy and is sometimes called canine scabies. This mange may spread between cats and humans.
- Demodectic Mange: Hair follicles are typically most affected with this mange. This extremely itchy and hard to cure mange can spread over the whole body. However, early treatment brings some success.
The earlier treatment for mange is begun the better the chances of successfully getting rid of it. There are many shampoos, medications and injections to control mange but there are also home remedies that can work just as well without the chemicals. In addition to treatment, some cases of mange are so bad that shaving or quarantine is required to keep it from transmitting to other pets.
Some tips to Control Mange:
- Brush the animal’s fur regularly. This helps remove scabs and skin.
- Ears can be especially uncomfortable when mange attacks. To treat inside of the ears, use two tablespoons of plain yogurt containing acidophilus and rub it inside the ears.
- One tablespoon of unpasteurized apple cider vinegar added to your pet’s meal will treat and reduce mange.
- A highly effective home remedy to treat mange is to use a mixture of one percent hydrogen peroxide with borax and water. Dissolve completely and bathe your dog using this mixture at least one time each week.
Mange is a very uncomfortable condition for your pet and anything you can do to protect your pet from catching it is important.

Cat Mange Problem
My 6 week old orphan kitten just started treatment for her cat mange 3 days ago, however she seems to have bigger bald spots and more skin dryness than before…Does this mean her cat mange will worsen before it improves? The treatment is a series of four shots over the course of a month and a half. (P.S. I’m not sure which type of cat mange it is I forgot to ask the vet, but he did mention it was still in an early stage).

Talking About Mange in Dogs and Cats
I was surfing around and ran into this person talking about two ordinary household ingredients that can be used on dogs and cats and that it cures the mange. Unfortunately, she did not say what the two ingredients were. Has anyone heard of this and if so, can you please tell me.
Types of Mange in Dogs and Cats
Which mange Demodectic or sarcoptic? I don’t know of any household products which would kill mites. If your dog has mange you need to get it to a vet to determine which mange mite it has and then embark on a programme of bathing or injections. It is very very hard to get rid of and can kill the dog in severe cases. Don’t mess with mange!
There are many effective Mange Treatments that are proven to be very effective and will treat all types of mange better than the old traditional Mitaban Dip, which has many toxic side effects.
