We went to a couple animal shelters today and really liked one particular pup, less than 3 months old, who they're calling a shepherd mix but to me looks closer to a black lab with a bit of rottie coloring.
Anyway, we noted a considerable amount of dandruff (?) and several small spots of missing/thin fur on his head.
We were told by the volunteers that both were due to demodex mange, for which he is under treatment and should go away. We didn't get to the stage of talking to the vet. I believe this to be a respected shelter and will trust their advice (North Shore Animal League, Long Island NY) but I'm interested in opinions here whether this sounds "right, ok and treatable."
