How Do You Treat Mange?

Answer

Canine Mange is a skin disorder which is caused by the presence of mites which exist on the skin of the dog or in the hair follicles and may even burrow under the skin. Canine Mange may require a skin scraping and examination under a microscope to determine the type and amount of mites present; this is done by a vet. The vet will prescribe ivermectin and care should be taken to follow the veterinarian's instructions as it is a powerful drug which can have severe side effects, including death.
