WHAT IS DEMODEX MANGE




So, what is really Demodex mange and why is mange found more on dogs than on cats? Why some dogs have to go through long treatment for mange, use anti demodex creams, dog mange shampoos and lotions while others don't even have the symptoms of demodex mange. These and many other related to demodex mange questions are on pets owners mind after they have to face this microskopic parasite on their pets.




The answer to these demodex mange questions is simple. The mange on dogs comes soon after birth from their mother. You probaly familiar with other demodex species: Demodex folliculorum, Demodex brevis and Demodex canis which live in humans causing human demodex. Even thoug these human demodex mites are very small only 0.3 mm - 0.4mm in length, they can travel with average speed of approximatly 8-16 sm / hour. It is fast enough to move from head to tos overnight, while we sleep. Almost same speed applies to dog demodex. It moves fast from mother to pups.




Demodex mange has a red color and can be called a red mange. It has long, thin cigar like body with 8 legs. Demodex mange live in hair follicles and within the follicle. You will need to use a microscope to see the mites. Do all pets have demodex mange? The answer is: yes, most healthy pets have demodex mange mites. Why some pets have the mites and never have demodicosis? Because of the immune system. When dogs immune system is suppresed, the mange start increasing population. Bad shampoo and extended use of antibiotics and steroids are most common reasons for dogs demodicosis.

Many mange treatment creams and oimtments on the market today consist of chemicals and antibiotics. Besides antibiotics and chemicals, most demodex products have other inactive ingredients which block the skin pores. Another main problem with treatment of the Demodex mites is that the mites can quickly develop resistance to chemical and hormon substances which are composed in most prescribed treatments for mange. Treatment of demodex mange can be a lenghly process and may take long time. Antibiotics and chemicals can only be used for short 2-3 weeks period. Longer use of antibiotics and chemicals will have side effects.
