Abstract

A total of 330 skin scrapings were collected from dogs with dermatitis presented at College Clinic from January to September, 2004. The overall prevalence of demodicosis was found to be 25.45%. The epidemiological factors studied revealed that young dogs up to one year of age were more susceptible (47.62%). The highest prevalence of the disease was found in the month of March (41.18%). Among various breeds, Pomeranian (26.19%), Mongrel (22.62%) and Doberman (16.67%) had higher prevalence of demodicosis. Pure-bred dogs were more susceptible to demodectic mange. There was no significant influence of sex on the prevalence of demodicosis.
