Description :

Mange is a skin disease caused by several species of tiny mites, common external parasites found in companion canines. Some mange mites are normal residents of your dog’s skin and hair follicles, while others are not. All mites can cause mild to severe skin infections if they proliferate.
The Cause

Sarcoptic Mange — infection of the skin with the microscopic, parasitic mite Sarcoptes scabei. Sarcoptic mange is contagious, and most dogs catch the disease via direct contact with an infected individual. People and cats can also be transiently infected.

Demodectic Mange — overgrowth of mites, Demodex sp., that are normally found in small numbers in a dog’s skin. Demodectic mange is usually diagnosed in young dogs without fully functioning immune systems, or in dogs that are otherwise immunocompromised. Demodectic mange is not contagious.

Typical Symptoms

Sarcoptic Mange — extreme itchiness with hair loss and red scaly skin that typically start in sparsely-haired areas like the ear flaps, elbows, and abdomen, but can spread to the entire body without effective treatment.

Demodectic Mange — patchy hair loss with relatively normal looking skin underneath is the hallmark of the most common, localized form of the demodectic mange. Mild to moderate itching may or may not be present. In more severe, generalized cases, hair loss may be wide-spread, the skin obviously abnormal, and itchiness severe.

Treatment of this condition should be done under veterinary supervision and the dog’s entire body must be treated with the scabicide treatment and/or scabicidal shampoo to be sure the mites are eliminated entirely
