More about Mange
It can vary depending on which type of mange…there is no home remedy for mange and some variations can be not only very contagious to other animals but to humans as well…some variations can even be life threatening if not treated. It is crutial you have a proper diagnosis!
Death can occur due to severe dehydration from the increasingly larger sores and from failure to eat, because of their extreme pain and discomfort. In a healthy animal, the mite may be dormant for months or years, becoming a problem in a pregnant cavy or one subject to illness or stress. The most serious infestations occur in the young and ill older animals subject to stress and poor environmental conditions, usually on the trunk. The response in healthy animals is less severe, perhaps due to grooming or suppressed immune response
Signs: These species specific microscopic mites cause unbearable itchiness for the animal and can result in thinning and/or patchy loss of hair, scurfing of the skin (may resemble dandruff) and eventually, open sores as a result of extreme scratching and biting which aggravates the hair loss. Scratching an area of skin infested by mites by hand may produce such pain and irritation in your cavy that it looks like it’s having a fit. A guinea pig suffering from mites may become less friendly and be reluctant to interact with its owner.
While skin scrapings may confirm mites, scrapings are frequently omitted because they are so unreliable (see MISDIAGNOSIS below). Often a vet will administer ivermectin in the presence only of itching and hair loss, treating for other conditions such as fungal infections in the absence of improvement. It is important to note that your cavy may be suffering from more than one condition.

Sarcoptic Mange on Dogs
My dogs have sarcoptic mange. It took 4 weeks to convince any vet of this because they wanted to blame allergies and saw no mites in the skin scrape. Right, $2000 later my dogs STILL have sarcoptic mange and NO treatment. I ordered on my own this white sulfur. I want to also treat them with revolution though. It’s such an easy treatment for this, my mind is boggled by the fact that no vet could just do this.
Anyway, I called my vet yesterday and asked this too. I’m tired of the vets and my dogs are suffering pretty bad and getting worse. My dog now has a hematoma in his other ear (his first hematoma was fixed with five drainings and steroid injections), he is BLEEDING my other dog has lesions on her stomach now.
I want to buy revolution and treat it myself immediately. But I don’t know if I can because I just gave them frontline plus on Nov 1 AND my dog has a liver problem.
My vet was off today but he called me back. He said yes there could be problems, it’s up to me I “could try it”.
I’M SO FUCKING FRUSTRATED!!!! I DONT HAVE A DVM I CANT MAKE THESE DECISIONS WHAT IF I MAKE ONE THAT HURTS MY DOGS???????
This is the FOURTH vet. And I’ve been to 2 others in this area they’re awful. This one is the best one but he leaves all the decisions up to me because he doesn’t know what to do. I don’t either!!!
So anyone with knowledge about this please, can I give revolution when I already gave frontline plus this month and I don’t know. If you say ask a vet or go see a vet, you will automatically be blocked.
Preventing Sarcoptic Mange
To use revolution for a mange infestation, it has to be given every 2 weeks I read so it will be an overdose even without the frontline but that’s the treatment.
I already have mite bites on me but they aren’t as bad as my dogs at all. but they’re typical sarcoptic mange..on my knees, shoulders and had it on my ankles. they seem to go away on me in 2 weeks but i got them again.
One of my dogs (noncollie) was given the heartgard injection (not pill, it was a higher dose) and immediately she stopped itching for about 24 hrs, but then started again because my other dog wasn’t given the shot
skin culture ruled out bacterial and fungal infections,allright no revolution. CRAP. the white sulfur should come tomorrow I had it 2 day delivery. i don’t know if that will work now because I’m thinking, these mites burrow under the skin how is anyything topical going to work. I’m sorry I was upset when I wrote this.
