Different kinds of mange have different levels of infection. Sometimes it's like Asrais said - and only comes out when the immune system is down and doesn't spread to other animals.
And sometimes it's more like fleas or ringworm and gets everywhere and is extremely difficult to eradicate.
Piggie the guinea pig...so cute lol
This reminds me of the vet I had to deal with at the emergency clinic when Sammy cut his paw open on a corrugated iron fence. She was petrified of him, which I guess I could sort of understand because he is big but really, she like jumped away from him if he so much as looked in her direction. Poor Sammy was already stressed about the fact that he had a very sore paw that was bleeding everywhere and the way she carried on just gave him so much more to worry about. But then, a Bernese Mountain Dog puppy came in, 10 weeks old it was having an allergic reaction to a bee sting - aside from the swollen nose it was just about the cutest thing I've ever seen. And when she saw the dog she had a look of disgust on her face. She wouldn't touch it, she asked the owners to do the handling. My usual vet is all over Sammy, he checks his heart while Sammy licks his face. On my word (and because he knows Sammy) he agreed to staple the wound closed whilst Sammy was awake because I told him Sammy would let me do it - and I figured if we could avoid surgery that would be better for him. No way will I be going to any other vet - I know firsthand how terrible some of them out there are. It also helps that my vet is a major hunk, he leaves Bondi Vet guy in the shade lol
