My dog has mange can my cat catch it?
What are some possible treatments for cat mange as my vet is on holidays for another week (we got the dog in before she went away) and I’m not even sure if its mange someone else mentioned to me it might be allergies?
There are two types of dog mange and they are caused by mites. So it is certainly conceivable that the mites could be transferred to a cat from a dog. I think cat fleas stay with cats and dog fleas with dogs and I am not at all sure of that.
Allergies can also cause hair loss and poor coat so it is good you will have the vet look into the problem next week.
