Originally Posted by Leahs Mom That’s what I’ve heard....and one of the reasons that I like the NuStock as it is so helpful for many things. I think the VetRX, based on the ingredients, would be useful for scaley leg mites. But so is regular cooking oil... I’d still like to check out the VetRx and see what I think. If nothing else, I’d like the smell Originally Posted by CCCHICKENS IMO it stinks (smelling wise not quality wise lol) CCCHICKENS~ Camphor comes from an evergreen tree, so I didn’t find the smell offensive and it didn’t linger. To me, it smells kind of like Vicks VapoRub, which also contains camphor. From my experience, VetRx worked better for scaly leg mites than oil alone. Camphor acts as a pesticide to scaly leg mites and the oil mixture provides a suffocating barrier. Similarly, NuStock contains sulfur powder that acts a pesticide and the oil mixture provides a suffocating barrier. Either would probably be more effective than oil alone. Leahs Mom~ To make homemade NuStock, people probably mix sulfur powder with Vaseline. I’m like you-- why do that when you can buy some that’s no doubt mixed up better than trying to stir powder into Vaseline! Haha danad~ My gosh, you have had more than your share of bad luck! Sorry to hear about your cute doggy. The vet couldn’t tell what she swallowed? What items are you missing around your house? Hope she passes it so you both don’t have to deal with surgery! Anything new with the nutty neighbor with the neglected, nefarious dog? Good thing we can click on your tiny photo to see your hen! Haha It looks a lot like my EE --see photo on page 1462 following the pics of the geese.
