Case of the Week

Sarcoptic Mange

For this case Dr. Neumeister was presented with a one-year old Miniature Poodle who was extremely itchy.

  sarcoptes scabiei
  Photo above shows one of the Sarcoptes Scabiei we found under the microscope.

Dr. Neumeister noticed some crusted skin around the ear and took some scrapings to view under the microscope. Several Sarcoptes Scabiei parasites were found. These parasites cause Sarcoptic Mange.

Typical symptoms for Sarcoptic Mange include hair loss, bald spots, scabbing as well as sores. It can be found all over the world and will infect most mammals - including humans. When passed to humans, it will show a rash of red bumps, similar to mosquito bites. Click here to continue reading.
