Many mammals suffer from a skin disease known as mange. Typically, it's caused by a mite burrowing under the skin. Mange seems to be most common in cats and dogs, although other animals can get it. There are several types of mange but, thankfully, just a few affect your pets. The mites cannot be seen with the naked eye but their effects can be seen quite clearly. Some mange appears to be dandruff and has a short lifespan.
