Mites, Ticks, Fleas or Allergies?

Postby lucho562 » Wed Jan 02, 2008 6:25 pm

Our lil pup has been itching like crazy since last night. She has been itching like crazy on her armpits. She itches near her privates some too. I checked on her an hour later, and she has a lump now. I cant make it to the vet till Saturday. However I want to ease her pain. Can someone help me with any clues on to what has caused this? I took some photos of something that may be a critter, but not too sure.

itching until they self mutilate is a sign of sarcoptic mange... keep her away from other animals until she can see a vet.

Itching on the underside such as belly, armpits neck could be scartopiv mange as well...

I would get a skin scraping as soon as possible....
