Can humans and pets use the same mange products?

All of our products are completely safe and nontoxic. We do have two different treatments for ringworm on humans and ringworm on pets. Our company has two different brands of products.

The All Stop brand is specifically formulated for humans and the PetsBestRx brand is specifically formulated for pets. The All Stop Medicated Skin Cream should not be used on pets because it does contain tea tree oil. This can be fatal if used on cats. We have a scabies regimen that is specifically formulated for people and a mange one that is for pets. They are different regimens. Both our people and our pet products are proven 98.5% successful through trial and studies.

For scabies on people, we offer our All Stop Mitactin Spray and Mitactin Salve. One is to be used in the morning and one at night. The salve should only be used on pin pricking areas.

For pets we offer the PetsBestRx Pet Wash, Sulfinex Cream and Mitactin Spray. If you pet has a septic smell you must use the PetsBestRx Pet Wash to treat the secondary infection. For the other products you would alternate days for treatment. For instance, one day dream the next day spray. If you follow the regimen as directed it is very successful. Our PuraCleenRx Disinfectant Spray can sanitize your environment when dealing with scabies or mange.

Some cats can have mange mites present on the skin and no show any signs of mange. Another symptom of mange on cats is hair loss. If they scratch themselves and create an open wound they can cause a secondary infection. Itching symptoms on your cat can depend on your cat’s skin, allergic reactions or sensitivity. Also if you pet has a lowered immune system this can cause their skin to become sensitized to the biting and burrowing of mange mites. Continue reading “Do cats always itch with mange?”
