Spreading the Word
This is just a little note to all of you in our area (and others) to know that Mange is on the move. Mange is a skin disease that is caused by parasitic mites. Mites can infect not only your cats and dogs but also plants, birds, and reptiles!
Mange started out recently south of Punta Gorda, and then stretched to Ft Myers, and cases are now being reported in Collier County.
Some signs of Mange are hair loss, itching, bald spots, scabbing and sores. If you think your cat or dog may have Mange, do not hesitate to seek your veterinarian. Most Mange cases are in dogs, and since we know a lot of you are cat and dog owners, it is important to us,. that you are made aware of diseases on the move.
Keep your pets healthy and safe this holiday season!
