So today I brought cho cho to the vet for the little bumps he's been having for the past 3 weeks. For so long i thought they were bites from bugs and waiting for them to go away. But they keep coming back! So today I found out that they're formed due to bacteria in the skin. The vet said that's the first guess, so she gave him some anti-biotics hoping the bumps would go away. BUT she said that if these medicine can't help him then it might be mange..... she'll have to do skin scraping. Im sooo worried! :'( I don't want him to have mange :'(
How are mange developed?? There's no way he could get it from other dogs... and is it curable??!!
My daughter has a rescue and about a month after she got Bailey, she found out she had mange. It took awhile, and it was a little more money than Beth had planned on, but of course you don't say no. She is fine today, so I know it is curable. The internet probably has more info on it.
If it is Demodectic Mange it would have been transfered from the mother of your dog. Usually a treatment of mange involves a dip just like a flea dip bath. My puppy was diagnosed with Demodectic Mange when she was around 4-5 months. She had to do a few dips, medicine, and a certain kind of shampoo to help her coat. She only had a very tiny bald spot you couldn't even notice unless you were intentionaly looking for it.
That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Please go to this site on the internet before you do any mange treatment. www.marvistavet.com Then type in demodetic mange. You can't dip toy breeds. It could kill them. I had a vet who wanted to dip my toy breed dog and luckily I called the breeder who called the owner of the sire. She told me to please go some place else. I did and found out from the new vet that my dog didn't need to be dipped and no treatment was needed.
I do have to be careful about shots. He can only get one at a time and he does have problems with mosquito bites. I have a special spay to keep the bugs off him that is dog safe.
sarcoptic mange ie: scabies, is transmissible to humans. demodex is not. ringworm, which is a fungal skin problem and not a worm, is transmissible to humans. most bacterial infections are not transmissible.
