luvmypits is an unknown quantity at this point
The itching gets pretty intense on my forearms and hands. Doesn't really drive me nuts though. My big girl itches the area between her eyes so much she's giving herself sores and the little one has some scabs on her chest.

Have they been to the vet for a skin scraping? How long has this been going on?

I always say if it looks like mange, itches like mange then treat for it. I would start treatment right away and this thread has some good info too. It also talks about treating yourself for the mite. Make sure to treat all dogs in the house even if they show no symptoms.

How do I clean & disinfect carpets couch etc. sarcoptic mange?

Because she is itching too (the human lol) I would call it sarcoptic mange and not waste money on a skin scraping since they really cannot diagnose that way anyway. It can also flare up and come and go and why many vets with negative skin scrapings will just call it allergies. The sure sign it is sarcoptic is when the people start to itch.

Yes, if the owner is scratching then it most likely is sarcoptic. Or, it could just be mental on the owners part that they feel itchy that happened to me when we figured out that Bella had mange. My arms were itchy and it felt like my skin was crawling even though she had demo. Lol!

lol well sometimes like Shanon said you have this mental thing about your dog having bugs or thinking they do and then you start to itch! It's all in the mind! I had to keep telling her no you do not have demo the itching is in your head! lol

I use to be a vet tech but it has been many years now and from having so many dogs you learn a lot. If I would not have had a sarcoptic mange outbreak I would be clueless! I also was misdiagnosed by several vets and had to do research on my own to find a cure and what our kennel had. I also learn a lot from others. i do not know it all and room time to time I am just wrong! lol Like I just got spanked by Bulldoc the vet for giving wrong info! oops! If I don't know for sure I try to look it up before I say anything and even my source I found online was wrong so oops I felt DUMB!!

We have some great people on this board and I wish Deb was around more she is still a vet tech and I have learned a ton from her! Her user name is Geisthexe and she is the bomb! lol She makes me feel like a newbie sometimes I like helping others and since I have experience with a lot I feel like it is important to share it to help others. The problem is many times vets confuse people or are not great vets and it makes it hard to help out if the vet is saying one thing (and the dog is not getting better) and you try to suggest something else, the owner feels like the vet went to school so they should know better right? That is the way it should be but unfortunately not all vets are great and give bad advice or are looking to take your money. UGH sorry that is OT! lol

IF... IF.. its not sarcoptic aka scabies..

your simply allergic to his hair.. many APBTs have a strange course hair that is itchy.. Hoagie was that way.. No mange here.. LOL just used a softened shampoo and you can use a variety of oatmeal shampoos .. tail and mane is the best JMO.

The itching is not going to push me over the edge and it comes and goes. I do have more problems if they haven't been bathed for awhile. Gonna give the medication a shot and see how it goes.

They have both been scraped but awhile ago. And nothing was found so the vet is falling back on allergies. We have the no-grain food and I add fish oil and yucca to it but nothing seems to really slow the itching on the dogs down. They've itched for 2 years at least. Sometimes bad and sometimes not but consistently.

You guys are great! So glad I found you. Little pit is in trouble at the moment. Had an altercation with a strangers cat.

This makes me think it is not sarcoptic mange, if it was all their hair would have fallen out. It can be allergies like seasonal but we might need some more info. Your itching could be more like what Stan was saying where you are allergic to the dogs. I have several dog who I am allergic too they make me itch like crazy when they lay on me. If you had scabies you would know it, you would itch yourself till you bleed.

I firmly agree that Ivermectin does a tremendous amount of mite killing and I have noticed no side affects from using it on my dog.. Along with a healthy diet your dogs GOLDEN....


Also BENEDRYL...Really keeps the itching down....

Hi Guys, I m new here just signed up as I have a question about this as well..

hope OP dont mind me asking this on your thread.

I have 4 dogs in the house 2 are my moms westies and 2 are my bullies.

the dogs do come in contact atleast 2-3 times a day, but for some reason I m not itching when I cuddle with the westies.

but as soon as I touch my bullies, I ll start itching like no tomorrow.. it will stop after a quick rinse with water or it just stops after about 5 minutes of itching.

my female bully did have mange but it was treated with ivomec.

I bathe her reguarly with oatmeal from the vet.

my male bully didnt get mange (or atleast I dont think so.. since no hair loss) but I m still reacting the same towards him.

now this is the part that gets on me.. me and my mom have the exact same reactions but my girlfriend on the other hand could cuddle and do whatever with the bullies and shes perfectly fine..

I ve been trying to find a solution for this but nothing seems to work.. I ve switched their diet to lamb and salmon instead of chicken.
I bathe them with oatmeal.

any help.. would be much appreciated !

Thanks alot guys and girls !
