ETIOLOGY AND PATHOGENESIS Three species of mites are responsible for the majority of clinical cases in dogs, cats, and rabbits.

Species identification can help to determine the epidemiology and aid control in difficult infestations. CLINICAL FEATURES Dogs Dogs exhibit more predictable clinical signs than cats. There is no breed incidence, except that atopic dogs may be predisposed. Dogs aged 1–3 years are most commonly affected3. Pruritus is usually present, although variable. Lesions are mostly over the caudal back, flanks, tail, and perineum (23, 24) and, less commonly, the limbs, ventral or rostral trunk, and head. Clinical signs include symmetrical to irregular alopecia, erythema, papules, crusts, excoriation, hyperpigmentation, and lichenification.

Any animal that improves with a restricted diet should be challenged with its original diet, which should include all treats, scraps, biscuits, chews, and dietary supplements. If a CAFR is involved, there will be an increase in pruritus within seven to ten days of the dietary challenge. If there is no increase in pruritus following the dietary challenge, then a CAFR can be ruled out and the apparent improvement was probably due to some other effect. If there is recrudescence of pruritus with the dietary challenge, then the restricted diet should be reinstituted and there should once again be resolution of pruritus.
