how do dogs and cats get mange. and how do you get rid of it.?

There are different kinds of mange. One kind is genetic and is caused when the dog is stressed and their immune system isn’t up to par. Some breeds are prone to it.
There is a contagious kind which can spread from dog to human or vice-versa and it is SCABIES. A Vet needs to treat this to be effective and to be sure you are treating the right kind of problem with the right product.
Another type of mite a dog can get is “chiggers” which they can get in forested areas. So if you have been camping, or have surroundings that are wooded or wild vined, then that is a possibility.

What is red mange?

Demodectic mange, also known as “red mange,” is an inflammatory parasitic disease of the skin. There are several names for red mange such as demo mange, demodex mange, demodectic mange, red fox mange and the seven year itch mange.

Red mange, if present, usually occurs within the first two years of life. Red mange can also occur later on in life and is also commonly known as “adult onset demodicosis.” Red mange is hereditary and is passed on via an animal’s genetics. Additionally Red mange is not passed on by direct contact and not considered contagious. For this reason, having mange is not a desirable trait and recommended that these pets are not breed. The pet in question should be surgically altered to prevent further spreading of this type of mange.

Treating red mange

It is also important to note that not all cases of red mange are readily and easily treated by using proven mange medicine and mange creams. Some cases can be very difficult to get rid of red mange if infection is present. This may make the treatment period longer, complicated and more costly. It is impossible to predict how each case will turn out so it is important to begin as soon as possible to decrease the risk of treatment failure.

Does anyone know of two household ingredients that can cure the mange in dogs and cats?

Talking About Mange in Dogs and Cats

I was surfing around and ran into this person talking about two ordinary household ingredients that can be used on dogs and cats and that it cures the mange. Unfortunately, she did not say what the two ingredients were. Has anyone heard of this and if so, can you please tell me.

Types of Mange in Dogs and Cats

 mange in dogs and catsWhich mange Demodectic or sarcoptic? I don’t know of any household products which would kill mites. If your dog has mange you need to get it to a vet to determine which mange mite it has and then embark on a programme of bathing or injections. It is very very hard to get rid of and can kill the dog in severe cases. Don’t mess with mange!

There are many effective Mange Treatments that are proven to be very effective and will treat all types of mange better than the old traditional Mitaban Dip, which has many toxic side effects.

Skin and Coat Problems in Dogs and Cats

The skin, your pet’s largest organ, acts as a barrier against harmful invasions from the environment. As an organ of elimination, symptoms of disease often show up in the skin and the body rids itself of toxins

Skin problems are probably the most common ailments seen in dogs. Usually they are not a disease in themselves, but a symptom of another underlying problem.

The most common reason for skin problems in both dogs and cats is an allergy. Foods, pollens, dust or medications may cause signs of allergy. Problems can also show up due to dietary deficiency or poor diet in general. Symptoms include such as itching, redness, and poor coat quality.

If no other reason for the problem can be found, it is time to look for food allergies. Changing to a premium or home-made dog food can usually make a big difference in a short time. Often simply adding raw meat to the diet is enough to see an improvement.

If the problem persists, or the pet is already on a healthy diet, then you must look at the specific ingredients in the food. Beef, chicken, corn and soy are the most common allergens, but cats and dogs, like people, can be allergic to anything. Try eliminating the above four things first, if that doesn’t work a more drastic “elimination diet” may be necessary. This usually takes at least 6-8 weeks to get a good reading.

If no food allergy can be identified, or if eliminating an offending food has not solved the problem, then you must look to the environment – inside as well as outside. Once an allergic reaction has been allowed to continue for some time, the immune system is taxed and the body may become sensitive to other irritants.

Play detective! Ask yourself if anything has changed in the house recently; new carpeting, new cabinetry, fresh paint? These things can all give off chemicals which may cause illness. Are the symptoms seasonal? Pollens are a common allergen, and difficult to avoid, especially for a dog. Did the symptoms start suddenly? What happened just before they appeared – vaccinations? Other illness? Emotional upset? Finding and eliminating the cause can be a long and difficult process.

Essential Fatty Acids, also known as Omega-3 and Omega-6 are important nutrients for the skin and coat of dogs and cats. You might also consider certain herbs, such as Milk Thistle or Dandelion, which support the liver and help the body detoxify. There are many natural topical products that can be used to calm the symptoms.

Bathing is not always the answer. If the dog’s coat is dry, bathing may just make matters worse. If you must bathe, use a gentle shampoo. For dogs or cats with itchy skin, look for oatmeal as one of the ingredients in a pet shampoo.

Another common cause of itching and redness for dogs and cats is flea bite dermatitis. Not all animals are allergic, but fleas will at least cause scratching or biting in all pets simply because they are annoying! Flea allergies however, cause the pests to be more than just an annoyance. Symptoms of flea allergy include hair loss, redness, and sometimes sores kown as “hot spots”.

If you suspect your pet has fleas but you haven’t actually seen any, look for the tell-tale black “specks” at the base of the hairs. Fleas particularly love the areas at the base of the tail, ears and hind legs (where they meet the belly). To determine if the specks are flea dirt (dried blood) and not just dirt, put some on a white paper or cloth and wet them. If they turn red, you’ve got fleas.

Some diseases cause symptoms of the skin and coat. Thyroid imbalances may cause dull, flaky or greasy coat and sometimes hair loss. Skin and ear infections are common with Cushing’s Disease.

There are some specific skin diseases as well. Mange is caused by a mite and causes lesions and hair loss, usually around the mouth and eyes. This most often clears up on its own, but some dogs and cats cannot rid themselves of the mites and have a more severe case. Ringworm is a highly contagious fungus affecting cats, dogs and people (especially children). It shows up as circular lesions that are raw, hairless and scaly. The disease spreads rapidly.

Boredom or anxiety can cause a dog to lick its paws repeatedly and constantly, resulting in “lick granulomas”. These are raised nodules, often rough and scaly. There is also a group of autoimmune diseases called Pemphigus which cause scaly skin, scabs and pustules. Some breeds are particularly susceptible to the disease.
