Sarcoptic Mange

Sarcoptic mange, commonly known as canine scabies, is caused by the parasite Sarcoptes scabiei. They are contagious to human at a different strain. This is how it looked like when viewed at the microscope. They just kept swimming and swimming under the lens. (Of course, my vet and master was the one who was able to view this, not I.)

So my vet gave me the following since I was just a 2 month old puppy and I couldn't be given any strong scabicides.

  1. Vitamins (LC VIT- 60 ml/ 120 php)
  2. Antihistamine Syrup (80 php)
  3. Antifungal soap (Dr. Kauffman)- since I was too small, too weak and too young for the real thing.

Was that all? YES!!! And she told my master that it will all depend on the her patience towards my battling this ailment.
