It could be the condition of the new owners property with other dogs there, and has now spread to their new pup. I'd call a vet and ask.

    I’m taking her to another vet hospital now. They are giving her the shots. I am giving her Atarax twice. Giving her a bath with Patina shampoo. Used Candid lotion didnt work. So now using Betadine. She is a heavy groomer and licker. Any suggestions?
    It would go away and come back again. I want my baby to be cured permanently.

    Also she is eating well and everything. Only sheds a lot and scratches , is itchy around the neck all the time. The doctor gave me Calm Ear drops. Because of that the black stuff inside the ears has reduced.

    A similar situation happened to me. I purchased a puppy and a few weeks after we brought him home we found out he had demodetic mange, which is not contagious to our other dogs. Mange is caused from a low/suppressed immune system. Even something like stress can cause this. The transition to our home was a bit tricky with our husky, as he did not want a newcomer. We believe that is what caused the mange. I did call our breeder and she gave me some advice but I had already been taking the little guy to the vet for Mitaban Dips.
    I put him on Nzymes, Probiotics, Ox-E drops (for the water), and changed his diet to Eagle Pack Holistic to help boost his immune system.

    His treatments lasted 4 months (as it is difficult to get rid of) and he was just given the “all clear” last week! It was an expensive, long process, but I NEVER would have given the dog back as I fell in love with him the moment I saw him. Nor do I blame my breeder. It was just one of those things that happens.

    Depends on which type of mange it is, demodetic or sarcoptic.

    With one type, you betcha.
    With the other type, probably not, in the situation you describe.

    The milder mange is considered present on just about every dog, but the immune system controls it, and you never ever know that it’s there. But in pups with a barely-adequate immune system (common in highly in-bred lines), any extra stress (such as changing home, such as having a tummy upset, such as having a reaction to a vaccination) gives the mange the opportunity to thrive and make a damned nuisance of itself. You’ll need to have their vet determine which it is, and ethically you need to pay for the treatment.

    You should also check out what your area’s Puppy Lemon Law states as being the breeder’s responsibilities & obligations – speak to your Animal Control Officer to find out what that law is called in your area, then look it up in your national or state legislature web-site.

    It’s a tough call. Mange is caused by a burrowing mite which is easily transfered from animal to animal. If the dog got the mite at your house then chances are most if not all of the animals will be affected as it is highly contagious. I would take the pups to your vet for a simple skin scrape to determine if the mites are present.

    Symptoms to look out for are red spots on the ears and skin, incessant itching, or if they are in the ear, itching and shaking of the head.

    as a responsible breeder you should know the answer to this.

    what type of mange was the dog diagnosed with?

    • doth2394

    Yes it is extremely contagious, even humans can get it. If the pup has mange it probably got it when it was moved but just to make shore take the rest to the vet. Good luck I hope i hope all the other pups will be alright.
