    Mange

    Hey everyone. I have a dog I rescued with mange. My question is about Prolate as a dip. I read here that 1oz. per gallon is a good mix. After you apply it do you leave it on to dry or time it and rinse off? Seems like you would leave it on but I dont want the dog to get sick. Thanks for any help or other suggestions on how to help him with mange.
    I have Cephalexin going also as we speak.

    Another question about the dip

    I have two Shih Tzu dogs but figure the treatment should be the same. I was also wondering about the dip/spray. Is it harmful if left on and they lick? I really want to get started treating them but need to make sure nothing will harm them before I will begin. Any help will be appreciated. I am questioning the use of Prolate.

    It is good that you question this products safety and I am glad you are concerned for your dogs health.

    This is why I do not use Prolate and other related Dip products................

    Prolate/Lintox-HD is used to control flies, mites, mange and ticks on livestock but is not for use on household pets. Paramite was used to control fleas and ticks on dogs. It was voluntarily taken off the market in 2005 after the Environmental Protection Agency determined its active ingredient was potentially dangerous to animal handlers, groomers and young children, said EPA spokesman Chris Whitley.
    Paramite and prolate both contain the same active ingredient, the organophosphate insecticide phosmet. Organophosphates kill insects by disrupting activity in their brains and nervous systems. These neurotoxins can also inflict nasty adverse effects on mammals (like humans) – hence their early use as chemical warfare agents.
    Toxic or not – what’s the problem if prolate and paramite both have the same active ingredient? Well… pet products containing phosmet were voluntarily taken off the market back in 2005 after the EPA found they posed an unacceptable risk of dermal toxicity to people who came in contact with treated animals.

    I hope this answers your question about Prolate.

    Hi Lead ,
    I think your limited use of the prolate if fine. Most of the time I do not support the use of dips because if not used with care it can cause harm to young or small breed dogs or older dogs in poor heath not to mention that it can be harmful to humans that do not follow precautions for ventilation , wearing gloves and eye protection and being careful to mix as per instruction on product label...

    I did not see Cephalexin mentioned in this thread so I am not sure how to answer your question. Perhaps a little more information would help.

    A general answer for using an antibiotic when treating mange would be to address secondary infection on the skin that can be a problem with mange.

    Red face Mange Gone

    I wanted to respond to the thread / question are you have any sucess / no improvement after three weeks.... I started with two Shih Tzu's with one having a litter of puppies. The ears on both seem to be the problem area for the mange. I shaved down the ears on the dogs and dipped twice and then blow drying them. Also I gave Ivomet 1% to both orally -- the puppies also got mange and with them I took a cotten balls and dabbed the solution on the spots were the mange seemed to be or they were itching.... I did bath them with a shampoo that was for flea's ticks, I rinsed them alot. Kept sure to keep away from mouth,. As they were only four weeks old and the shampoo is recommended for over 8 weeks old. The mange cleared up within a week and half. I feel part of the sucess was catching it in its early stages. Along with the great advice from oldhounddog. Thank you..

    for Jana Bana

    You say your mange cleared up and were using dip among other things. Were you using prolate dip?

    Thanks for all the specifics.

    I have to say that she sems to clearing up now and her hair is growing back so maybe I did not give it a chance.
