I have a female dog with demodectic mange, she is 10 months old. The breeder says the mother has no signs of the mange, neither have any of the other female pups from the same litter. Is this disease ALWAYS hereditory and should I have my dog speyed immediately?
Genetics plays a role in this disease. I do not thinkink spaying her immediately will make a difference in her condition. You do not want to breed any animal with a generalized form of demodex. Vetcare
