Lime Sulfur Dip (65650-V)
My poor Lopso was finally diagnosed correctly after many trips to the vet. He only prescribed Goodwinol and I was chasing the mites every different direction. I read everything I could possibly read and Lime Sulfur seemed like the best solution to the problem. It has been four months since the diagnoses and a little over a month using the product. I was giving him a bath in BPO-3 Shampoo every day and dip every day. The problem seems to have almost completely gone away now and have finally cut back to once per week. Also, this an immune problem and you will need to give the dog a supplement.
The vet wanted to embark on a very expensive 6 month drug routine to get rid of mange that just kept getting worse on a small dog, this stuff did the trick in a month with weekly baths. I mixed it with shampoo, rubbed it in, left it on for 15 min and the itching was better immediately, hair started growing back in weeks, skin improved within days. You have to do repeated uses for a while since the mites get so deep in the skin and try to gently scrub the skin with a cloth to remove the black areas once it starts to heal. I give her a treatment every few months just to keep it clear now, she's been good for two years. Smells terrible but works! Use rubber gloves or your hands will smell like sulphur for days.
works great on ringworm and mites for my cats
I have a multiple cat home and my cats contracted ringworm. This is a great product and does work(though a bit smelly) be sure to use it in a sink or baby tub where the dip doesn't just drain out because you want to also get their underside really good. Also remember that a good immune system is KEY to getting rid of ringworm and preventing re-infestation!!! For this, I use Bene-Bac powder also sold here to boost the immune system, I just add it to their food.
Our Golden had a patch of mange and we used this dip for four consecutive weekends, and she is, from what we can tell, healed. Her hair is growing back and she feels SO MUCH better -- nowhere near as much scratching. The dip does have a salty funky smell, but it works, so it's worth the smell. We used a tarp on the pool deck to apply it, because it will stain a mustardy yellow color.
