Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
Hi, my name is*****'m a licensed veterinarian and will do my best to answer your questions. I'm formulating my response now and will be back with you in a few minutes.
Do you have other pets in your household?
Sarcoptes mites generally do not live off the host for any length of time, so it's usually not a concern that your kitten will be contaminating the environment. I generally don't quarantine my patients with sarcoptic mange unless we're trying to prevent other pets from getting infected. You should be okay to allow your kitten to play in the house, but do follow up with your veterinarian to be sure the mites are completely gone before discontinuing the medication.
Does that help? If you have other questions please feel free to reply, even after rating. Please take a few seconds to rate my service, as I appreciate the feedback and it's the only way I get credit for helping you. Best of luck with your new kitten!
You're very welcome! I hope you have a nice weekend!
