Question by onceuponatimeiwas: Please HELP!! My cats have pretty bad mange. Need home remedy known to be safe and effective for cats! Thanks.
Recently became aware that my cats itching was not b/c of fleas (tons of treatment) but from mange mites! I cannot afford a trip to the vet and am also weary of chemicals used to treat mites. I have found a number of mite remedies but all have been for dogs with no side notes indicating they are safe for cats. Please help if you have any information or experience.

Diet alone can treat mange. Mites are best treated from the inside out. Try a raw diet or switch to Wellness brand wet food with added vitamin C, E, zinc, and lecithin.
The chinese herb astragalus and echinacea.
There’s a natural skin tonic, but it’s lemon and cats aren’t crazy about citrus. It’s pretty diluted though, you could try it:
Thinnly slice a whole lemon, including the peel. Add it to 1 pint of near boiling water and let it steep overnight.The next day, sponge the solution on the animals skin and let it dry.
Homeopathic: Sulpher (the element) 6C 2X a day for a week to ten days.
