can’t know for sure where a dog picked it up from (much like with humans catching a cold). but yes it is very treatable with a trip to the vet

I hate the dog jokes. What if they invent a solar cooker you can put on the roof of your car?

    There are different types of mange mites. Most dogs that have “mange” have demodectic mange – which is hereditary and not transmitted to other dogs. Sarcoptic mange is transmissible to other dogs but is not as common as the other, and the only way of knowing if any dog is infected by a mange mite is to bring it to a veterinarian for a skin test. That way it can be properly diagnosed and treated with the appropriate medication.
