Works like Magic but Smells Terrible by Daisy12/17/2012
This product smells exactly like it sounds! However, it works magic! My cat has struggled with ringworm for 9 months and would not heal. She was on three different medications and nothing helped her. She had lesions all over her skin and her fur fell out in chunks. I have used this product twice so far and she looks worlds better! Her lesions are starting to heal and no new ones are forming. Admittedly, she HATED the treatment. Everyone in the house hated it due to the smell. The smell almost completely dissipates after she is dry so I recommend drying your pet with a hairdryer to speed up the process. Also, wash any towels the product gets on with a little white vinegar and the smell will disappear. The vet recommended 6 treatments to me because of the extent of her infection. I am confident, based upon the preliminary results, that this product will finally cure her!
Very Sick Kitty by lobezno from Garden Grove, CA08/16/2014
This product smell horrible, but it really works wonders on a kitty that I rescued. With just a few applications, she is doing so much better.
Also the delivery of the product was very fast.
Helpful for Ringworm by Linda from North West Arkansas05/17/2014
I am a foster home for Fabulous Felines NWA. We rescue kittens and cats from all sorts of situations, many times from the local shelters and take them into our foster homes. We make it a matter of practice now to dip each new kitten and spray the dip on the adult cats when they are first rescued as ringworm can take up to 10 days to show up. If a kitten does have ringworm, we dip them every five days and this dip really helps keeping it from spreading and it does heal faster. I usually divide this bottle to dilute only a 16 or 32 ounce bottle at a time as the dip doesn't keep well beyond a week or two. I also put the cat in a bucket when I do it so any runoff can be reused on the next kitty.

I have two foster kittens that came to me with ringworm. Lime sulfur is such a great product to treat it. Personally, I would prefer this was an 8oz bottle because the dip I use for ringworm I always do 8oz to the gallon, but you can buy two or go elsewhere and buy an 8oz bottle.
Great product, has helped the kitties a lot.

Great buy by Cat Rescuer10/21/2013
Gentle on the skin, very mild smell. My cat loved it and is at last getting a relief from the itch caused by cheyletiella mites. We tried prescription medicine, it irritated his skin and failed to resolve the problem. This is definitely the way to go.
Use with caution by Tami08/16/2014
This is a easy to administer treatment but if you need to treat around the face make sure you put in an eye ointment first to prevent it from irritating the eyes. Also be careful with the location you use it- it will corrode the metal in your sink. Use in a well-ventilated area as it is very smelly.

Awesome!!! by Roxstar10/17/2013
I will always have this on hand for skin infections (both fungal and bacterial). Our dog had a slight case of ringworm and one dip cleared it up. We did do a second dip 2 weeks later as advised by our vet, but there was no reoccurance within that time. It does stink, and you have to keep them in a confined area until they are dried, but it is very effective alternative to pharmaceutical therapy.
Awesome by J Dillon04/26/2013
Works great for mange and any other unexplainable stuff your dog is itching about. Do this once a week for four weeks and as long as it's not allergies, it will kill anything on the dog. got my dog as a rescue, had real bad itching. vet said they didnt know what it was. i knew it was mange, she was losing hair. used this stuff. mange gone. but, by a bigger bottle or at least two of these. i have a shepherd and one bottle of the four ounce was only two treatments.
Sulfurated Lime - Did IT!!! by Pebbles from Tampa, FL12/26/2013
I read several recommendations that Sulfurated Lime helps to cure mange for dogs. So I bought it and tried it on my Blue Nose Pitbull. It worked great. Even my groomer noticed and said my dogs coat was looking good.
by from 06/16/2013
The product should be diluted at the time of each dip, because it loses its effectiveness.
not by work from onThis
Good by GiGi from New York, NY04/28/2013
Our cat's ringworm spot seemed to disappear quite quickly after using this product
I just want you to know that I love this product! I have tried many products and spent lots of money on different treatments for ringworm that a cat that I just recently purchased had."Unknown to me". This product is easy to use and effective aside from the smell, but it's certainly worth it to get rid of the worry!!!!!!! Thank you for this product!
Smells bad but works great! by Doglover from Virginia01/19/2014
We used this on our dog for a skin infection that we had taken our dog to the vet for three times this summer and fall. He was on different antibiotics that cost us $700 for the three times (More expensive than our meds ) After he showed signs of the skin infection for the fourth time we decided we had nothing to lose and tried this dip. We dipped him weekly for three weeks. No easy task as he's a big lab. We had also changed food based on the advice of the Eastern Medicine practice vet that was added to our vet's practice (alas this also hadn't worked) He is now free of his staph infection and his hair is growing back :) Great product but it does really smell. Small price to pay for it being the only thing that has worked for clearing his infection.
Best product by mike from Miami,Fl04/12/2012
I have a English bulldog with many skin problems and this products work excellent
Great product!! by Kari from Rochester, NY10/24/2012
Our property backs up to a forever wild area where there are all sorts of animals, including foxes. I noticed that my dogs were smelling foul and that they were frantically scratching and biting themselves to the point of actually pulling out fur! Several trips to the vet offered no explanation and the medications I had to buy did nothing to stop the torment and cost much $$ so I went online to search for the possible ailment. I came across mange and after reading more was firmly convince that both my dogs had it. Fortunately my vet was on vacation and they were seen by a vet fillilng in for him. She recognized right away that they had mange and gave me orders to buy Revolution and a sulfurated lime dip. She also told me that foxes carry the sarcoptic mites responsible for mange and since we have several foxes on the property, the mystery was solved. I bought both ASAP but saw much improvement from this dip. The cost at the Vet for just 4 oz was $10 and had to buy 8 oz to treat both dogs every 2 weeks, or less. this was very expensive and I was elated when on a search found that I could buy, from Entirely Pets.com a 16 oz bottle for less than 1 single treatment. I have used other Sulfurated Lime dips but this product is simply the best. My babies are now mange free and I owe it mostly to this product. I have since switched to Frontline Plus as a added deterrant.
Great product by jsheley0911/01/2013
This product works excellent. My dog had a skin problem and we tried several different medicated shampoos and nothing worked. Got this and after four treatments her skin is clear and almost all of her hair has grown back.
Almost a miracle by Gin from Florida08/27/2013
I live in a semi-tropical climate (FL) where everything thrives. My 13 y.o. Lab had a horrible year long battle with ringworm and finally the other Lab caught it, too. Despite daily baths with medicated shampoo the ringworm was winning. Her fur had fallen out all over and she was miserable. My vet had no other suggestions. He just said her immunity system was too old to fight it. I did some research and found this dip. I followed the instructions and dipped both dogs a total of 3 times over 4 weeks. It's gone and her fur is growing back. She's happy and she looks beautiful again. I would HIGHLY recommend you try this product. I will use it as is necessary again.
Still Waiting by coyote22555 from VA01/09/2012
I bought this product hopeing for a quick fix,
but I am on my third treatment. It may have helped but hasn't worked yet. The help desk is worthless, so much for chat help .I got a message all persons were buzy please leave an e-mail, then the reply was to ask my vet LOL
I am going to have to look for some thing else if it doesn't start working soon. I pray it will work soon my poor baby is missrable.
Processing Took Six Days by Tim12/22/2011
I am happy with the product and I noticed that when you said it was shipped it only took two days to get to us after that but was a little disappointed that it took six days to process two items before it was shipped. I placed another order for this and was hoping for a quicker processing time.
Great product! by Kathleen from Houston, TX04/22/2013
The product really zaps fleas, ticks and whatever other critters lurk on our dogs and cats. My cats are allergic to the saliva of fleas, which would cause them to itch/scratch constantly. Due to their scratching it caused them to have bald spots throughout their body. The LimePlus Dip cured that problem ~ for which I am entirely grateful! My vet prescribed this for them.
lime plus dip by hunter from Ludlow MA02/23/2013
product worked great i. saw results after second application.
It works well for an unpleasant situation.
Just what we needed by Beagle Rescue from Omaha, NE03/16/2012
We rescued 5 beagle/sheltie mix puppies with scabies. Since they are part sheltie they could not take ivermectin so Lime dipping for 6 weeks was the deal. we needed the product ASAP so I ordered it late on a Thursday and it arrived on Saturday! And so far the product is doing great. It stinks of course but who cares? The puppies feel so much better already and that is what counts. 10 starts for Entirely Pets, 5 stars for the product!
works great by chris from kingston On10/30/2012
this product worked great for our dog. The smell is a little strong, but it worked, which is the main thing
Love the product! Used it on animals with mange & fungal infections for years. REALLY dilute it the right way, follow instructions (4oz per 128oz or gallon) & don't dry the animal with towel. Avoid eyes & if you don't, rinse them under faucet or with a hose right away cause it burns. Sulfur has to touch the skin not just the fur.
Sulfurated Lime Sulphur by guyinthailand06/29/2012
Formulated by Dr Melman, DVM who wrote the great book "Skin Diseases of Dogs and Cats", this product is highly recommended. Mix 4 ounces with a gallon of water and pour/sponge on animal. 128 ounces/gallon so you get 30 treatments for $100, or about $3 a treatment--not expensive.
Find his book, too, if you really want to get good at 'fixing' those animals whose skin is messed up, whether from Demodex or Sarcoptes Mites, fungus, allergies, etc
Works well for treating ringworm in cats by pinetree90907/09/2010
Works very well used as a dip twice a week to treat ringworm in cats, when used in conjunction with sporanox and the living area is properly vacuumed, cleaned, disinfected etc, they are all better in 6 weeks.
Effective product by Ruth Nelson from Eastern Ky06/19/2014
Bought for my boer goat herd, had a buck with the mange mite...bad case. Treated with 5 ounces per gallon, used a hand pump garden sprayer to get close range and all areas....took about 1 gallon to cover him.......took 3 treatments 5 days apart but he looks wonderful and no longer miserable.

Everything is perfect! Lime Plus Dip works very well for Ringworm therapie
effective and safe and fast by cat rescue director08/10/2010
if used every 5 days as directed, it will get rid of ringworm. It is cheap and effective and it works a lot faster than any of the systemic medications. We have had cats get very sick from Greseofulvin, don't use it at all even though vets who are not up on the latest will still prescribe it. Sporanox works and is safe but it takes a long time (4-8 weeks) and is very expensive. Fluconazole works too and is cheaper but does have side effects in some animals, although none of ours have experienced any so usually we use that if we have to use a systemic medication. For the vast majority of our ringworm cases, we dip every 5 days, clean the environment with clorox before putting the dipped cat back, change the bedding every day and bleach it. We have never failed to get rid of ringworm fast (most in one week) and effectively. You have to be really careful not to get in the eyes, which is dicey because a lot of ringworm is near the eyes. You just have to rub it in with your fingertips. Usuallly we dip the body and neck then wrap in a towel and do the face and ears very throughly. Also, be sure to use a collar till dry. We have had a number of cats vomit and get diarrhea from grooming the wet dip off of themselves. We usually dry most or all of the way with a hairdryer on low or medium if the cat/kitten will let us.
Just because the cat May not go into seizures and die outright, although they May, internal organs are affected by pyrethrins. Speeds up irreversible disease processes.
not worth it by Angie11/01/2013
This product did not do much at all. After the hassle of doing the dip on my dogs they broke out in a rash. Their coat felt brittle. Two days later still had fleas. Would not reccomend it.
Tried and True by carstette from Madison, Ohio08/08/2012
As a Vet tech I used this product back ithe 80's.So when the Frontline product stopped being effective for flea control on my pets,I wentback to the tried and true.I love the fact it is safe for my pets and children.
