Sarcoptic Mange and using ECTO-SOOTH 3X?
Using Sarcoptic Mange
I took my dog to the vet and they told me to use ECTO-SOOTH 3X for his Sarcoptic Mange. I did some research. I can’t find information on this product being used for mange. I have some left over dip from a dog I had 10 years ago which I know for a fact works.
Has one ever heard of someone using ECTO-SOOTH 3X for mange?
Give it a go if that’s what the vet said. I haven’t heard of it before either.
If it doesn’t work, use the dip.
What is Sarcoptic Mange?
Sarcoptic mange is the name for the skin disease caused by infection with the Sarcoptes scabei mite. Mites are not insects; instead they are more closely related to spiders. They are microscopic and cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Adult Sarcoptes scabei mites live 3-4 weeks in the host’s skin. After mating, the female burrows into the skin depositing 3-4 eggs in the tunnel behind her. The eggs hatch in 3-10 days producing a larvae which, in turn, move about on the skin surface eventually molting into a “nymphal” stage and finally into an adult. The adults move on the surface of the skin where they mate and the cycle begins again with the female burrowing and laying eggs.
