Ask a Dog Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
My name is ***** ***** I am a small animal vet with many years experience and rest assured I will do my best to answer your question to your satisfaction today.
The situation is this, humans cannot catch the canine form of scabies as such since it is very host specific and the mite will only be able to reproduce on dogs.
However sometimes a few mites can get on people short time and if you are sensitive this can lead to an itchy rash but this should be short lived and easily treated because as I say the mites do not reproduce on people, but you can get an allergic reaction.
I myself have had a minor rash of this sort now and again through handling dogs with scabies but on humans it is not serious ...
That's about all you need to know really, can I help you further ?
