Demodex Canis?

Answer

In dogs, mange is caused by a mite that goes by the scientific name of Demodex Canis. Most dogs have mites, in some cases, however, they will cause problems with the animal and can result in a serious skin disease. Signs of mange are red, scaly lesions on the legs or other areas of the dog's body. Once diagnosed by your vet, treatment will most likely include an antibacterial ointment. The condition will usually resolve itself after a short amount of time.
