Mange in Pomeranians

Mange in Pomeranians

Did you know that dogs like the Pomeranian can contract a skin disease known as mange? Mange is highly contagious and is often seen in dogs living on the streets or in overcrowded shelters. The skin condition is caused by mites and parasites that are found on dogs. There are different types of mange and different ways it can appear and affect your pup. Generally, manage comes from the mites living on the skin and hair follicles. Mites differ from dog to dog. Demodectic mange mites are common in almost all dogs. These mites are typically passed from mother to pup within the first few days of giving birth. These mites may cause skin irritation or infection if they are not treated quickly. Another name for mange is canine scabies. The condition can cause hair loss, itching, irritation, and even stress and anxiety. Please talk with your vet Lakeville, MN to learn how to identify, treat and even prevent mange.
