A while back now Ice got into a fight with a fox one night and had a few small scratches on his muzzle. Over the next few days the fur began to fall out and he had angry red skin there, so we took him to the vets. Our other two dogs were unaffected.
She admitted that if we hadn’t mentioned the fox altercation, she wouldn’t even have considered the possibility of mange but focussed more on something like ZRD. She said that the scraping samples needed to test for mange were quite deep so it would be easier just to treat it given the information we already had. We were prescribed one meat flavoured tablet that he took quite enthusiastically and that was pretty much it treatment wise. May have been a follow up tablet at some point but I honestly can’t remember. His skin started recovering pretty fast after that.
