Hi there! Mange is more of a symptom than an actual problem.. what I mean is that all dogs, humans, birds, etc have a decent colony of microscoptic Little beasties that live on us. When a dog has a localized bloom, like your dog, it means that something is up with the immune system. What's been going on? What food is being fed? When last to the vet for vaccines? (this is a biggee).
treatment isn't bad, or even costly, but it's the immune system that we need to look at. And no, Kevlar and Rumor have never had or been diagnosed with mange.
