    What is Mange?

    Mange is a class of persistent contagious skin diseases caused by parasitic mites. The term is sometimes reserved for the infestation of domestic animals. Another term used to describe mite infestation is acariasis. These mites embed themselves either in hair follicles or skin, depending upon their type. They generally infest domestic animals, including dogs and other canines, livestock (such as sheep scab), wild animals and even humans (such as scabies).

    Two types of mites produce canine mange, and each type has characteristic symptoms.

    Demodectic Mange
    Also called demodicosis or Red Mange, demodectic mange in dogs is caused by a sensitivity to and overpopulation of Demodex canis as the animal's immune system is unable to keep the mites under control. There are two types of demodectic mange: localized and generalized. Localized consists of 4 spots or less. Most dogs are immune to demodectic mange, however dogs with compromised immune systems and the elderly are at a higher risk. It is not contagious to humans.

    Sarcoptic Mange
    Also known as canine scabies, sarcoptic mange is a highly contagious infestation of Sarcoptes scabiei canis, a burrowing mite. The canine sarcoptic mite can also infest humans (scabies), cats, pigs, horses, sheep and various other species. These mites dig into and through the skin, causing intense itching and crusting that can quickly become infected. Hair loss and crusting frequently appear first on elbows and ears. Skin damage can occur from the dog's intense scratching and biting. Secondary skin infection is also common. Dogs with chronic sarcoptic mange are often in poor condition.

    Nice big male there merlin,
    Do you skin them? Deep south furs are not worth anything.

    the hides are worth next to nothing, skin some of them out.. they are getting bad enough here that there has been a bounty put on them in certain areas.

    Hey Merlin,
    Where are you hunting? I used to run hounds and had 5 walker/beagle crosses at one time (still have one old timer). It's one heck of a good time and really helps to develop tracking and shooting skills. Unfortunately, I moved because of work and there aren't many coyotes here. Your pic brings back memories.
    I'd really like to hunt leopard with hounds one day. I don't care if I'm the shooter, it would be fun to be along and here the dogs tonguing when they tree the cat.

    Hey Merlin,
    I'm in Thunder Bay now, but used to live near Penetang. We hunted Lafontaine, Wyevale, Elmvale, and Phelpston area. Small world, that's probably only about a 1/2 hr from you. How's the coyote population down there now?
