    Well, there are two kinds. Demodex, which is not contagious, and Systemic (is that the right word??) that is contagious. I would just stay away.

    Derma. mange isn't contagious.
    Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened.

    Oh, I just thought that there was a post here that someone talked about the difference between the two and how one kind, even humans can get and they get very sick....I wish I could remember the thread. I will go search.

    Correction..I just did a quick google search and it is Sarcoptic mange (not systemic, I knew it started with an S) is the contagious one.

    I'm not sure like I said she is not friendly. Once they went away and one of the kids left there hose on and it broke I noticed and turned it off. When I went across the street to tell them. she was rude and acused me of using thier hose.I have my own why would I need to use hers? Next time I will let her basement flood! I was just wondering the dog stays across the street and I won't take spike near there now. I have noticed that she been wiping him down on the porch at night. I will keep a close eye on spike Thanks

    If it makes you feel any better, Demodex is the most common and if it IS mange, most likely the one that dog has. It could also be lots of other reasons why it is losing it's hair....could be allergies?
