Animals become infested with sarcoptic mange by direct contact with another infested animal. Demodectic mange is passed from the mother to the litter. These are the only two ways for animals to contract mange mites.Mange can be contracted by different things depending on what type of mange your pet is fighting.
Dogs or cats may continue to become re-infested with dog mange or cat mange due to failure to treat the environment. If the environment in which the pet dwells is not treated for mange mites, the animal will continue to become re-infested with mange mites with increasing severity.
