This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Don Hamilton recommends the following.

Psorinum 30C one time weekly-ANimal is chilly and smelly and may be oily as well. These animals are chilly and prefer warmth.

Silicea-Use in alteration with either Psorinum or Sulphur. When one stops working use the Silicea and then vice versa.

Sulphur-These animals are warm and thirsty. Use 6X 3 x weekly or 200C one weekly dose.

You can also try Echinacea 3x.

Stop vaccinating. Vaccinations weaken the immune system.

Look into giving herbal astragalus and cat's claw to further the building of the immune system.

Feed raw. Raw is best.

Thanks.I have a doubt , are they pellets, tincture or powder ? How many times a day echinacea or is it once a week also ?

These remedies should come in pellets that you can crush on a spoon or drop by spoon into dogs mouth.

Or you can dissolve in a bit of goat's milk or water.

herbs come in tinctures and capsules. Try and order the herbs in a glycerine base. They are sweeter tasting.

Please try the leaves of madre cacao tree (kakauati, mandiri-kakau (gliricidia sepium/robinia sepium/ gliricidia maculata/galedupa pungam/ milettia splendidissima).

Pound the leaves and squeeze out the fragrant juice, then dilute with water and put in a spray bottle which you can use to apply the herb to the dog's skin and hair. it is immediately effective; the dog stops scratching and fussing. As there is no cure for mange--the greater issue is to strengthen the immune system- this is a palliative, but an excellent one. It can also be ingested without harm, and many dogs love the taste.

Extra virgin coconut oil strengthens the immune system dramatically and beautifies the skin and hair. Give daily to your dog alone or mixed in his food. 3 TBSP.

You might also try essential oil of lavender in a base of almond oil, applied topically. This works, but not as well as the madre de cacao.

I have a Thai Ridgeback with domodectic mange. Rather than do what the vet recommended, I decided to use sodium ascorbate (vitamin C) because of the information I read about in my book, Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins, by Dr. Tom Levy. Here is a quote from the book. 'All wild animals tested had at least a 4-fold greater rate of vitamin C production compared to cats or dogs. This is likely one of the primary reasons that these two most common domestic pets will keep the veterinarian busy with so many of the same diseases that afflict their human owners.' I've been using 1000-1500mg per day for the last two weeks, and the puppy is currently about 44 lbs. His mange is almost gone! You can find his website by doing a search for Dr. Tom Levy, and you can read parts of this book. I hope this helps many puppies.
