i put this on my black lab to treat a large spot on her back and sides. I noticed her lick at it a few times, but nothing major. Within 72 hours my beautful girl was dead. The vet said she died of sulfur poisoning. Please watch your animal and be sure they dont lick even a small amount of this. no words can describe what a hole this has left in my life.

We rescued a dog that had the mange thinking we could give it a better life than being put to sleep. After a trip to the vet we waited for the dip to work on his mange. It managed it a little but there was still a problem. From there we tried the peroxide/water/borax mix along with rubbing him down with oil. This did work and he was a happy puppy. He never completely stopped itching and one day we noticed the hair on his head was coming off and there were spots on his skin. The dreaded mange was back. We researched blogs and thought we'd try Happy Jack. The bottle directions were simple...wear gloves and apply...sometimes twice a day! Our dog went from a wagging tail, happy to see us...to being lathargic, vomiting and finally death within two days! We feel terrible that we tried this mange treatment on him. I'm sure not all dogs react this way or the product would be off the market. However, I didn't feel right now putting this out there for people to take caution.
We will never buy these products again, and if anyone has had to hold their pet while it passed...it is horrible. Our dog had all the signs of poisoning. We are certain it was this product because we had not been using anything else for his mange.

This is absolutely the best product I have ever used for treating any kind of sore or skin problem on a dog, bar none. I've been using Happy Jack since the 80's on all kinds of skin problems and it heals without fail.

It has outperformed anything I have ever received from the Vet. In isolated cases, there are times an antibiotic may need to be given for a severe skin infection along with the Happy Jack but it heals twice as fast with the Happy Jack.

I actually had a Lab come and sit the first thing in the morning waiting to get the medicine on a bad case of skin infection. It evidently soothed the open flesh wound.

After trying all the home remedies for Sarcoptic Mange-including borax and peroxide (which worked better on my 5 lb dog)-I finally broke down and bought Happy Jack. I was unsure due to some different reviews-and toxic effects if licked off...BUT, instead of going to the vet, I knew I could conquer these little bastards called mites. I started using the Happy jack on my Pit mix 5 days ago. She was missing hair and had open little scratch marks and bite marks that scabbed over...She was so itchy, and uncomfortable. The first 3 days I lathered her up from head to toe, being sure not to do the area around the eyes, and her feet (she licks her feet if I put stuff on them)..so, and don't use water! I sat outside with her for 30-45 minutes to let it sink in and make sure that she didn't lick it off. It stains, it stinks, and the longer you use it, the worse the smell is-don't make the mistake of putting them in your car during treatment..no bueno. It's the 5 day-and her itching is down from 80% to 5%-which is huge. She is already starting to grow back her hair in the balding spots, no more new bites, and there aren't bumps all over her torso anymore. She is calmer-and happier. She also doesn't seem to mind the medicine nearly as much as getting washed and then doused with borax and peroxide. I took away her bed-and won't let her on furniture or in my bedroom-and I put a new sheet on top of a cushion I have daily-for her to lay on. It's a pain to keep up with the washing of blankets, and cleaning of the couch..but you have to. I was getting bites for 2 weeks-and still get one every day or so-which looks like a pimple and then turns into a scab, then dry skin. I was itchy and annoyed for a good week...I thought I was living a hell of some sorts..but there is a light at the end of the tunnel. I didn't use Ivermectin, no meds, no vet-i've been feeding her homemade stew with meat, veggies, fats, and adding spirulina to her food, along with Fish Oil-coconut oil, or olive oil, or sardines daily. You have to boost their immunity. You can also get some Astragalus to help with this. All cheap and affordable. If you're feeding them nutrient rich food-they will be able to fight the mange better! Yay for happy jack..(I did call them to ask questions-and they weren't exactly nice-at all, but their product does work). I can't wait for this to be over-I will continue daily tx's for another 5 days. I have been able to start just putting it on problem areas, or areas she is still itching-as opposed to all over her...GOODLUCK!

It seemed to improve the scratching a bit..But at too high a price. My dog hated it and the sulphur smell (active ingredient) was so strong it stunk up the house. So I am trying some other things.

This medication works. We applied it as instructed. Our dog lost almost all her hair after we started treatment. However, I am not sure if was a side effect of the medication or the actual mange itself. (She only had minimal hair loss before) Her feet swelled up really bad too. It's been 2 months now and she still has a small spot of hair loss above her tail on her back, but all in all she is doing much better. Like I said though, during treatment she looked horrible and felt horrible. This is the first time ever dealing with mange or any kinds of treatment. So again not sure if these were side effects or not. I recommend that everyone use their best judgement and to me this was worth a shot and ultimately worked.

After trying veterinary shampoos and K-9 Revolution, my dog was still itching and whining in misery from Cheyletiella mange. Granted, this is not a burrowing mange mite like the sarcopic mange the bottle targets, but it was still not reacting to anything else I tried. I was at a point where I would try anything to make him feel better.
This stuff smells horrible (your dog and probably your house will smell like turpentine after use) but after dousing my Corgi with it and leaving it in a couple days before bathing him, he is itch-free!. Also be wary of where your dog sleeps etc. while the treatment is on him/her. I have a nice oily yellowish spot on my comforter. The treatment is an nasty orange color, but since my dog is orange, I can't really say if it would stain a light colored dog. I don't know.
Anyhow - If any of my pets come in contact with mange in the future, I'll spend the money on this stuff before I fork out left and right for more expensive stuff from the veterinarian.

this product stinks to high heaven, but it works. after two applications my dogs skin looks a lot better. less redness and itching. I applied it after a bath, when the skin was dry. I haven't noticed any side effects from use of this product, except that it stinks! I smell it in my sleep, but if my baby gets better it's worth it.

My dog has severe dermatitis and a dermatologist finally said he had to be on blood thinners for the rest of his life for his head and ear tips. I weaned him off prescriptions and just use this. It smells awful but it definitely works.

alleviated a problem the vets could not help. Treats more than just sarcoptic mange. I am happy with this item.
