Demodectic Mange Treatment

Mange Treatment Catalog

Demodectic mange is very common and is usually found in puppies. It often starts as a flaky, rough, sometimes reddened & moist patch of skin - often on the face, head, neck, ears, chest or front legs/paws. The skin often looks bumpy and rough and may even be damp or oozy. Later pustules resembling acne cysts can develop as the inflamed skin pores/hair follicles get clogged from debris from the mites and become infected and puss-filled.

Demodectic mange is not contagious to humans and it has nothing to do with living conditions, but it is the hardest (and more often, takes the longest) to treat. All puppies are born with them, transmitted from the mother - the weaker the puppies are, the more susceptible they are to have a problem with them.

Demodex mites are found on every mammal with hair - including humans. A dog with a healthy immune system usually won't have visible signs (no visible signs or symptoms, usually no problem). When the immune system is low, the mites uncontrollably start dominating.

Demodectic mange in older dogs can be brought on by "triggers". Triggers can be anything from stress, poor diet, bad living conditions, teething, loneliness, getting their vaccinations, moving to a new home, a change in routine, departure of a family member, grief, steroids, antibiotics and chemotherapy drugs, even sadness.

Some people don't understand that an animal has "feelings" just like humans. They are affected by some of the same conditions that make us sick as well. Understanding that certain things may inevitably cause the onset of demodectic mange, you can take steps to avoid them.
