Why do animals itch?

Skin problems are common in dogs and cats, and are one of the most frequent reasons that owners bring their pets to the veterinarian. There are many different reasons why a pet will itch and scratch. Fortunately, we can break most of the causes down into a few categories: allergies, skin parasites, and skin infections.

What is Sarcoptic mange?

Sarcoptic mange is one of the most uncomfortable skin diseases that a dog can contract. Highly contagious, sarcoptic mange is caused by a mite called Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis and is transmissible to humans. These mites burrow into a host animal’s skin, causing scaling, yellowish crust, hair matting and loss, and severe itching. (click the icon above for more information)
