• Hi , my italian greyhound 2 yr old dog has a bumpy rash on his body , 3 mm papules with scaling and hair loss, pls advise. Is this mange? We go to banfield pet hospital in Everett, MA

    Hi Amar,
    I recommend that you take him into see your local veterinarian. While the symptoms you are describing can be caused by mange there can be other cause as well. These other causes include allergies, a skin infection, food allergies, and fleas. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the symptoms and the treatment he needs after they have examined him.

Need more information or advice?
