There are these crusty thingy around my poor spotty's ear tip. Last week, it was just a small spot but the thing has already spread wider with thicker crusty thingy. I got the info from Net that it's called 'MANGE'. I noticed that my spotty always scratch all over his body... even after I've sprayed Frontline spray. Most probably the mange are over his body 'cuz I also noticed he got a few bald spots on his body.
I also noticed his scrotum is quite pinkish. I'm not sure if it's normal. He is already 2 years old and I don't think that the scrotum is still pinkish.
As visiting vet will be very expensive and difficult for me to bring my spotty to the vet (as I don't have a car), pls give me some of your advice on how to get rid of the mange. I truly appreciate it if anyone could reply asap. Thanks so much!!
I think it's best if u take him to the vet for a diagnosis....scratching may also be due to a lot of other reasons eg. fungal infection or allergies....for mange u need the vet to do a skin scraping and look under the microscope to determine whether there are indeed any mites....my dog had demodex too last time....and if it is indeed mange then u need to get treatment frm the vet, there are a few options for treating mange...either weekly mange bath or periodic injections.
