The copper-colored canine depicted here, was in the process of being treated for a condition known as sarcoptic mange, also known as canine scabies, caused by the itch mite, Sarcoptes scabiei var. canis. Note the large patches of hair loss due to the mites’ having burrowed into the dog’s skin resulting in inflammation, and generalized pruritus, causing the animal to scratch and bite at the affected areas, resulting in alopecia.
