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.
