Mange has long been regarded as a scourge for dogs, and afflicted dogs are sometimes euthanized because of it. But the condition has never been easier to treat.
There may be no other canine malady that seems to inspire as much misinformation as canine mange. Internet searches often return pages that blame it on lice (wrong) as often as mites (right). Ask an older person about it and he may tell you to use a dangerous and ineffective treatment such as dousing the poor dog in used motor oil (a great way to sicken or even kill the dog). But the condition isnt a mystery, and its treatment has never been easier. Lets clear up the misinformation!
