mange

This forum is for cat lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your cat.

Is there any over-the-counter or homeopathic treatment for mange?

There are different types of mange and it's important to know which you are treating for. I know it can be difficult to treat and have not heard of homeopathic remedies to treat. A skin scraping is necessary to determine if, mange is the culprit, or if it's a different skin issue altogether.

Thanks so much, Hunter! (I was hoping you would see this!) I told my neighbor she needs to take the puppy to the vet, but she wanted to know if there was anything she could do other than that.

Thanks again!!

A vet visit is best as Hunter recommended. The use of certain drugs can make the mange condition worse. Best of luck.
