by Pam

My dog was exposed 2 weeks ago to scabies.Is there anything I can do now to prevent her from getting it?


My Grandaughter bought a puppy and found out later it had scabies. I am now worried about my dog.


Vet Suggestions on Preventing Dog Scabies


Hi Pam,

The simplest solution to your dilemma is to apply a parasiticide to your dog that kills the mites that cause scabies (called sarcoptic mange in dogs). The product I recommend in cases like these is Revolution.One dose of Revolution should put all your worries at ease.

If you’re looking for something that is available over-the-counter, Frontline spray applied once a week for four weeks can also be effective.



Good luck,

Jennifer Coates, DVM
