Canine Scabies a disease of the skin and hairs of dogs caused by a mite (microscopic parasite) called Sarcoptes scabiei variety canis, which digs galleries in the skin causing intense itching, hair loss and many secondary lesions of the skin. It can affect any dog, regardless of race, age or sex, although it is known that scabies in dogs is more common in stray dogs, underfed, malnourished, with poor sanitary conditions and perhaps to a greater extent in dogs Puppies and young people.
