How can a breeder or dog owner treat Mange in his/her dog without the services of a veterinarian and where can one get the necessary drugs from?

Ivermectin is very effective in treating Mange. You can get the tablets from a pharmacy store for humans. Dosage is 0.25mg/kg body weight as a single dose, then repeat treatment again after 2 weeks.

You also need to sanitize the dog's cage or kennel and immediate surroundings with any insecticide spray, but make sure the dog is kept away for a while until the effect of the spray has worn off.

And if there are also other dogs, you have to treat them as well whether they have the symptoms of Mange or not.

Do you know the cost of Ivermectin tablets?

It's quite cheap, especially when bought from a human pharmacy store rather than a pet shop. Last time I bought, it was sold for just ₦800/pack of 500 tablets.

Of course not, there are several other options like applying jec-right (sulphur + paraffin) gel, Amitraz bath, Benzyl benzoate cream, permethrin cream, fipronil spray, etc.

Some breeders also use more traditional or less conventional methods like applying powdered charcoal, vegetable oil, lime, used/black engine oil, palm/red oil, palm kernel oil or even that black powder inside batteries to the affected areas of skin on the dog, and it seems to work for them.

So where can one get all these drugs from?

Of course you don't have to use all of them at the same time, but you can combine one of the creams, spray or bath with Ivermectin tablets. My personal favourite is combining Ivermectin and jec-right (sulphur/paraffin) gel.

Jec-right gel, Amitraz and fipronil spray you can get from a pet or vet store, while benzyl benzoate and permethrin creams you can get from a pharmacy store for humans.

Thanks a lot. This is really helpful. Just one more question though. I know of some breeders who prefer giving their dogs Ivermectin injection, rather than the tablets. Is it that the injection is more effective or what?

Injections aren't more effective. Their advantage over tablets lies in their speed of action, especially when given through the IV (intravenous) route, and the fact that they can be given to any patient even when the patient, for certain reasons, cannot take drugs by mouth. Injections are mostly preferred in emergencies and serious cases.
