Question:
Suitable disinfectant for mange-infested dog bedding?



Replies:
Please seek professional help from a veterinarian, but Here are some helpful links:

For Sarcoptic mange (Scabies):

For Demodectic mange. http://www.sniksnak.com/doghealth/demodecticmange.html

Since both types of mange are highly contagious to both dogs and humans Bedding should be washed in hot water and bleach, but preferably replaced all together.

Here is another link for your information:
