Mange and Scabies in Cats

How Can I Prevent a Recurrence of Mange?

  • If your cat has been diagnosed with mange, you’ll need to thoroughly clean or replace his bedding, collar, toys, dishes, etc.
  • If you suspect a neighbor’s cat may be infected, keep your pets away to keep the disease at bay.
  • Bring your cat to the vet as directed for rechecks to ensure the mites have been eradicated.
