Question by Kristin J: How do you check a dog for mange?
How do you check a dog for mange?My mini dachshund is loosing hair.
Answer by Jessie
You take him to the vet. The vet will probably do a skin scraping if he suspects mange to determine the type and the treatment.
If your dog has bare ear margins, that's a classic sign of all types of mange. Dogs with sarcoptic mange will scratch uncontrollably and are actually ripping their hair out, while dogs with other types of mange lose hair because the parasite is in the hair pore, loosening the hairs.

Mange takes the form of scaly, dry lesions and patches of hair loss on a dog's face, legs and ears, and a skin scrape at the vet's office will confirm the condition.

You bring it to a Vet, how cruel to let your dog experience this.
If you don’t have the money try a clinic or animal shelter, tell them you found the dog and are willing to keep it, They should help you if they have the funds, although because of this mess we are in they too are pressed for cash, they now have to crush or put healthy, good dogs to sleep.
Worse case scenario you might have to donate time to them, but if you love your dog you won’t mind the sacrifice and might even get some free training tips from them
Only the vet can properly diagnose mange. There are two types (one of which is contagious to humans) and using the WRONG treatment could make matters worse.
Time for a vet trip – should only cost about $ 60 unless your vet charges high for office visits. The test is a simple skin scraping and mange is diagnosed right in the office. Treatment is usually medicated bathing and/or other types of medication.
your vet does a skin scraping from a few different areas and they check under a microscope to see if they can locate the type of mite which will determine what type of mange it is. (demodex or sarcoptic).
i think it’ll be pretty obvious if he has mange because the skin would look weird. but if your concerned then go to the vet just to check
