Can Colloidal Silver Help Pets with Mange?
Tens of thousands of natural health advocates use colloidal silver to help keep their pets healthy and infection-free, but did you know it can also help clear up mange and other irritating skin issues?
Of course, colloidal silver works great for pets’ tummy problems, eye and ear infections, topical sores, Parvo infections, peritonitis, bladder infections and more.
People even use colloidal silver in their fish tanks to help keep their aquarium fish from developing “ick” and other skin infections. And farmers use it on their farm animals in place of antibiotic drugs.
But, as it also turns out, colloidal silver also works phenomenally well for clearing up bad cases of mange and other skin issues on dogs and cats alike.
Here’s what pet owners are reporting…
Hi, Steve Barwick here, for The Silver Edge…
One of the most frequently asked questions seems to be about pets’ skin problems.
Whenever I’ve encountered skin problems on my own dogs or cats, I’ve simply sprayed 10 ppm strength colloidal silver onto their skin several times a day until the problem is resolved.
Sometimes, when the problem has been particularly stubborn, I’ve had to use a good colloidal silver gel, such as ASAP Ultimate Skin & Body Care Gel (contains 24 ppm colloidal silver) from American Biotech (available on Amazon.com) and have simply rubbed it into the affected skin several times a day. Being careful, of course, to wash thoroughly afterwards so I don’t pick up any potential bugs myself.
For even more stubborn pet skin problems, some people tell me they’ve used stronger topical colloidal silver gel or cream products to good effect, such as SilverPure Cream (with 35,000 ppm nanosilver) from SilverPure.com.
There are many other good colloidal silver creams and gels, and you can read about some of them in my article “Germ-Busting Colloidal Silver Creams and Gels.”
While there’s very little clinical data on using colloidal silver for pet’s skin problems, there’s lots of human data – both clinical and anecdotal. And that data points to colloidal silver being extremely beneficial for the skin as a mineral supplement.
For example, it’s used in hospital burn wards, in the form of prescription silver sulfadiazine cream, to help prevent infection in severe burns and to stimulate the healing of damaged skin.
Indeed, one of my very first experiences with silver for healing was when I was prescribed Silvadene cream for severe sunburn blisters all over my face and neck after a weekend fishing trip in the Colorado mountains.
I was stunned to see how quickly my face healed after the application of the Silvadene cream, which, of course, contains silver sulfadiazine.
In pets, using plain old liquid colloidal silver (10 ppm strength) as topical mineral supplement, I’ve seen cases of rough, dry, eczema-like sloughing skin healed in a matter of days.
And as for mange, I’ve seen cases of healed up nicely in a week or so. In fact, here are a few anecdotal accounts about how people have used colloidal silver to treat their pets for mange:
Colloidal Silver and Mange
Colloidal silver user M.S., from Oklahoma City wrote to say she’s used colloidal silver to cure mange on her son’s pet dog. As she describes it:
“We brought the Micro-Particle Colloidal Silver Generator from The Silver Edge along with us when we visited our son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons this summer.
I was shocked when I saw their dear dog, Pepper, who had the worst case of mange I’ve ever seen. Big areas of skin were bare, scabbed and flaky and she would rub up against the house to scratch her sides from the tortuous itch.
Our son told us of all the trips to the vet for different remedies that didn’t work. Well, I got some canning jars and distilled water and made some micro-particle colloidal silver that day. I told our son to get a spray bottle to spray her down that evening. He did.
The next morning there was a noticeable difference in her skin – almost no flakiness and she looked a lot less miserable. Each day we saw improvement and hair growth. By the end of the week she looked happier and wasn’t scratching. Now her coat is perfect and glossy – back to her lovely self.”
Another person, Michael S., wrote that he cured his Shepherd/Rottweiler of mange using colloidal silver:
“My cross Sheppard/Rottweiler developed the mange, really bad, and a major lump on top of his front paw. The vet removed the lump. I gave the dog 40ml 3x a day colloidal silver with food, and the mange disappeared within a month, completely. The vet was duly impressed. He knows about colloidal silver. I also put colloidal silver drops on the stitches which healed wound beautifully.”
Still another happy colloidal silver user wrote to say it had cured a nasty case of “red mange” on her female rescue dog:
“The veterinarian said my rescue girl had “red mange,” and could not use normal treatment (which sounded awful for her anyway) but would “try stock dips and other harsh chemicals to try to save her”…..ummm, no. Took her home, and started putting colloidal silver right on the mange places, topically. Plus, I gave her 4 tablespoonsful per day for two weeks. She was cured, and all of hair has grown back, never sick at all. Beautiful girl. LOVE my colloidal silver!! My husband and I use it daily for ourselves too. Prevention.”
And colloidal silver apparently heals mange on cats, as well. As D.M. wrote to say:
“I am thrilled to report that the colloidal silver I made has cured my cat’s mange…his hair is starting to grow back!!
I gave him 1 teaspoon in a medical syringe, 1x a day (would have preferred 2x a day, but Tuna really hated the process). I also put some in a small spray bottle as well and sprayed it on all areas that fur was falling out.
I also used a cone to prevent Tuna from licking it off the area. In just 5 days his hair is already coming back!”
All of this is quite unusual, of course, because colloidal silver is best known for killing infectious microorganisms like bacteria, fungus and even some viruses.
But mange on pets is a skin disease caused by parasitic mites, known commonly as “mange mites.” When an animal’s immunity is low, these mites can embed themselves in huge numbers in the animal’s skin, resulting in the loss of large patches of hair.
Mange mites come in two basic varieties. One variety, called Demodex canis, severely damages the skin of the animal by burrowing into the hair follicles and sweat glands to such an extent that infectious microbes such as Staphylococcus epidermidis can colonize the skin and spread, causing skin infection and hair loss.
And the other variety, called Sarcoptes scabiei canis, burrows into the animal’s skin causing a severe allergic reaction, resulting in intense itching, crusting of the skin and hair loss.
It would be interesting to know which variety of mange mite was afflicting the pets given colloidal silver in the anecdotal accounts described above. But the most important thing is that colloidal silver appears to not only relieve the intense itching and inflammation, but apparently also gets rid of the mites allowing the hair to grow back.
As I explained in my previous article, “12 Most Unusual Uses for Colloidal Silver,” as well as my article “Treating Pets for Fleas Naturally with Colloidal Silver!“, many insects (such as roaches, aphids, termites, fungus gnats, fruit flies and others), simply don’t like being around colloidal silver because their very lives depend upon tiny microbes they live in symbiotic relationship with.
The silver, being highly antimicrobial, apparently threatens this symbiotic relationship between the microbes and the insects. So when their “symbiots” are threatened, the insects leave the area out of self-preservation.
Could this be the case, too, with the mange mites? I don’t know, for sure. But for the sake of the dogs and cats that end up with this insidious condition, I’m certainly glad to know colloidal silver will help resolve it!
Helps with Skin Infections, Too!
Here’s a short anecdotal account from a gentleman from Pennsylvania who lives in a residential community for pet owners. His friend’s dog came down with a very serious skin infection that was beginning to spread to other dogs in the pet-oriented community, so he gave his friend some of his homemade colloidal silver in hopes it would help the ailing dog.
What happened next was nothing short of astonishing:
“Steve, I live in a community in Hatfield, PA that has over 1000 separate residences. Many of the buildings are exclusively designated for families who have pets. This was great for easily socializing with other dog lovers and the pets loved the arrangement.
One day a dog was affected with a skin disease that was so virulent, within two days she had scratched off her entire coat of body hair. Her skin was also bleeding and covered with scabs. It was clear that she had a severe infection.
The veterinarian that treated her prescribed over three hundred dollars worth of medication, hoping that it would eradicate her skin lesions and stop the terrible itching that was causing her to harm herself.
After a week of treatment despite wearing a protective collar, the itching increased causing the dog to scratch and bite her skin causing even greater damage. By now, the bloody lesions covered her entire body.
Even worse, three more dogs began to develop the same symptoms. Different veterinarians were consulted and prescribed similar expensive medications that did little to eradicate the problem.
Word of the symptoms began to spread throughout the designated dog buildings. People were afraid to walk their dogs fearing their animals would contract this devastating skin disease.
I have been using colloidal silver with incredible success treating all kinds of infections for at least ten years. Luckily, I discovered “ the Silver Edge Generator” about four years ago, and began to produce my own ‘silver’ remedies. So I gave my friend a thirty-two-ounce bottle of my ‘Silver Edge’ colloidal silver solution to apply to his dog’s skin.
(His dog was the first canine to contract this disease). I told him to apply the ‘Silver Edge’ solution to his dog’s skin three times a day for three days.
I spoke to Gene (my friend’s name) three days later. I asked him if he had followed my directions and asked how his dog was doing.
He told me that he had only applied the silver solution on his dog’s skin one time. His dog immediately stopped scratching himself, so he didn’t have to use the silver any more. Within two days, his dog’s hair began to grow back and the lesions began to disappear.
He decided to share the rest of the ‘Silver Edge’ solution with other dog owners in the community whose pets had displayed similar symptoms. Within ten days there were no more outbreaks of this cruel and disfiguring skin disorder!”
– Jeffrey C.
Of course, this real-life account doesn’t surprise me in the least. After all, over the years I’ve used my homemade colloidal silver on my own pet’s “hot spots” and other skin maladies, and have witnessed the immediate and profound relief it brings.
I’ve even used colloidal silver on a Chow with a severe flea infestation, by spraying his thick fur with 10 ppm colloidal silver and then rubbing it into his skin by hand once each day for three days, only to see the fleas disappear completely and never return. Now, there’s no more toxic flea sprays for my dogs!
What’s more, my step-daughter and her husband in Texas have also experienced phenomenal success treating pet skin conditions with colloidal silver. They take in “rescue dogs,” rehabilitate them if they’re sick, and then find good homes for them.
So when they called some time back to let me know they had brought in a new rescue dog that had inflamed pimple-like bumps all over its belly, and that the veterinarian’s prescription cream had proved to be of no help, I immediately recommended colloidal silver.
They began spraying the inflamed bumps with colloidal silver several times a day, allowing it to air dry. And voila, the inflamed bumps began to disappear, bringing rapid relief to the new rescue dog, and ultimately a complete healing of the mystery condition.
Using Colloidal Silver
On Other Pet Maladies
So does colloidal silver work on other pet maladies, as well?
You’d better believe it does – and pet owners around the world know it. Here are a few articles documenting some of the innumerable ways colloidal silver can be used to bring rapid and sustained relief to ailing pets:

Colloidal silver is widely accepted to be the world’s most powerful and effective natural healing, infection-fighting and anti-inflammatory agent.
But it’s not just for pets. Millions of people worldwide use it too, for everything from healing cuts, burns and bites…to stopping colds and flu in their tracks…to putting a quick end to food poisoning, earaches, sore throats, eye infections, upper respiratory infections and much more.
Indeed, there are an estimated 10 million regular colloidal silver users in North America alone, with tens of millions more throughout Europe, Asia and the rest of the world.
And as any experienced colloidal silver user will tell you, it can also be used for an astonishing array of healing and disinfecting purposes, including:
- Spray your store-bought meats and other fresh foods with colloidal silver before refrigerating, to kill any nasty pathogens such as MRSA on the food surfaces!
- Spray colloidal silver onto kitchen countertops to kill germs, mold, mildew and other microbes!
- Soak your store-bought fruits and vegetables in it to eradicate potentially harmful bacteria and fungus from the food surfaces!
- Clean and decontaminate faucets, doorknobs, and other contact surfaces such as your kitchen cutting board or that filthy blade on your kitchen can opener!
- Add a couple of ounces to your daily laundry as a natural disinfectant agent that will keep clothes, bath towels, dish rags, and other fabrics fresh and germ-free for weeks on end!
- Soak your toothbrush in it to prevent microbial contamination!
