    Default demodectic mange?

    If it not one thing it's another... noticed a bald patch on Lola's head the other day played it off to be a rough tumble when playing with Loki well that patch turned into 3 along her cheek. Brought her to the vet and they scrapped it said it's demodectic mange he said that there was 2 mites when bad scrapes would show numbers in the 30s. They put her on a progressive dose of ivermectin .02 ml for 7 days then .05 ml for the next 7 days then 1.0ml for the remaining 7. Does this seem to much she will be 5 months the on the 14th. Also do I need to worry about loki "catching" this? Thanks all

    Hey there! I do not have experience with mange, but I do think it is contagious,. Does the vet you were with know you have two dogs?

    I told them that she likes to play with her brother loki. i never though to ask if it spreads. He said most puppies get it and it dies off as their immune system strengthens

    Yes, as, very true on the puppy thing... All dogs have mites it is just the strength of the immune system that keeps them at bay.

    Then maybe there isn't an issue and I'm wrong on the contagious thing. Always thought it was

    Ok, looked it up... It os contagious, but if the other dog is healthy and immune system strong it is not an issue. So Loki should be fine

    Ok good! His allergies are getting bad already this year so hopefully that doesn't mess this up too bad.

    Demodectic mange is passed on from the mother at birth..it is not contagious to other dogs or humans.sarcoptic mange is contagious..my Romeo had it when we brought him home at 4 months..he was on ivermectin for almost a year before his monthly scraping came up totally clean..my vet said it can be brought on by stress or illness and once they have it there is always a chance it can come back esp from stress or illness..Romeo had just had cherry eye surgery and been nuetered before we brought him home

    Miss Tallulah had it as a puppy. The vet said do nothing and just keep an eye on it. It should go away and it did. If it did not he would recommend meds but said often it goes away naturally and he prefers not to medicate if possible.

    I think the only reason that he prescribed was because she was having some problems with her bladder a few weeks ago and she may not be able to fight them off.
