Will my dogs hair grow back after treatment for mange?

By Sancha Question: Will my dogs hair to grow back after treatment for mange my small dog has bald spots on his body?. It is going to get treatment for mange but I was wondering if it will be with permanent bald spots. This is our first dog and is always scratched from the first day. We have to give him a flea medication also from day one. It started with 2 small bald spots on his leg and we thought it could be scraped himself while playing in the yard. However, spots started to be more present and finally we took him to the vet.

    He will get his hair back. Mange is caused by a mite. Mite goes, hair grows.

    The mites have destroyed the hair follicles & the hair will more than likely not grow back in those bad spots. How ever I have seen hair grow back over bad scars just by brushing & keeping the coat healthy. Some say rubbing bacon grease on the scar will stimulate hair growth. I don’t know about the grease but I wouldn’t rule it out.

    Do some research on the mange mites, Demodex or Sarcoptic. Two differernt mites with two different affects on a dog. It helps to know this so you understand the treatment & why it takes so many treatments to kill the little culprits.

    My understanding is that his hair will grow back with time and healing. I’ve heard of some really bad cases where pets have lost 50% or more of their hair, and have had a full recovery, but it will take time… sometimes weeks or months depending on how bad the loss is.

    I’d like to ask you a question in return, if you dont mind…
    What was the very first sign you noticed, that your dog had mange?

    I’m actually researching this very issue, as my little chihuahua has had a horrible case of the ‘itchies’ for over a week now, but NO other signs. No hair loss, no sores, no rash. But definitely intense itching. So much so, that she’s waking me up at night. I’m so sad for her, and I’ve already treated her with Revolution, but no relief. She just keeps scratching and biting at her hind-quarters. Thank goodness… not so bad to make herself bleed.
