Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Can you share pictures of the mange?Has he been diagnosed before? If so, what type of mange did he have?
I can assist you, but I need more information. There is more than one type of mange and the treatment is not the same depending on which he has. Additionally, if he does not have mange but has similar symptoms the treatment may not work so it's important that we be certain of what is going on. Some dogs enter a state of chronic mange and others will pick up mange as puppies or adults. Mange, such as sarcoptic, can be transmitted to people, as well.
