Did you do a search on it?
Mange is a catch-all term for various skin conditions that include scabies or sarcoptic mange in dogs (known as notoedric mange in cats), demodectic or "red" mange, cheyletiella mange, and ear mite infections. They are each caused by a different mite.
There are three types of mange
Scarcoptic mange is the most common. It first becomes evident with small itchy red bumps. These are insect bites]
Demondectic mange occurs mainly in puppies 3-12 months old. It is usually is contracted from the mother]
Cheyletiella mange, also known as walking dandruff, is also mainly found in puppies. This form spreads easily among puppies
caused by various minute parasitic mites that burrow into skin, hair follicles, or sweat glands. This leads to chronic skin inflammation and loss of hair
