4-month-old puppy recovering from mange
This 4-month-old puppy is currently undergoing mange recovery treatments and is needing foster care until his hair has grown back in. Treatment consist of weekly medicated baths.
Demodectic mange is not contagious to other animals or humans. Demodex mites are transmitted to puppies from their mother during the first few days of life. Since the mite is found on virtually all dogs, exposure of a healthy dog to one with demodectic mange is not dangerous, as the immune system must be depressed for mange to develop.
