Are dry scaly patches on dogs the mange and what causes it?
Dry scaly patches are often mange. Of course, there are two different types of mange….demodectic and sarcoptic. Demodectic usually occurs in younger dogs and doesn’t usually cause severe itching even though there will still be hair loss. It is not contagious. Sarcoptic mange is very contagious and will cause lots of scratching and chewing, as well as hair loss.
Diagnosing Dog Mange
