Hydracortisone cream from the drug store can help. You can also put a tee shirt on the dog if it is scratching it's body and the shirt might help from them scratching too hard and getting a

Scabies and in Sarcoptic mange? Yes it is very contagious and you and any other animal can get it. Why do you think it is Sarcoptic mange?

I believe it was Demodectic I would have to look.....

I hope it clears up soonish though because she isn't aloud back in Obedience school until then. I can almost bet that's where she got it to. I may not take her back. She was a heathly pup when I brought her home with a minor food allergy. A week into Obedience school and she has the case of the mites. But who knows....either way she's not scratching so bad anymore.

Demodex is not the one that is contagious and also ear mites and demodex mange are not the same thing.

Demodex is the sign of a poor immune system. It can be brought on more so by stress, illnesses etc.
So her being taken from the breeder and also the puppy classes could have added more stress and caused the outbreak.

Allergies are also a sign of a compromised immune system. So Your pup did not catch this from the puppies in her class. How do you know for sure it is a food allergy? She could not have been on an elimination diet long enough to tell . Did you do allergy testing? Did the vet just take a guess on that at the time?

The vet should have explained this to you.

I hope she is better asap.

Hang in there and keep on practicing you obedience at home.

Good thing it was Demodex and not Sarcoptic mange. Sarcoptic mange is very contagious were Demodex is an immune system issue. At least you know now!

She's is nearly 100% better now.....Not as itchy anymore and the appearance is over all good.

Yes Akasha had food allergies ~ she was tested for allergies because I got concerned when she only itched outside...they tested her for different things. Maybe the break from puppy school well help to...

Who knows, all we know is that she is doing better.......
