Pets, like people, are susceptible to various diseases. Vector-borne diseases can serve as fleas and ticks, which sometimes is not so easy to find under the hair of the animal. But worst of all, when blood-sucking parasites for a very long time do not show their life in the body of the animal. And so very dangerous subcutaneous mite in cats maybe not long enough to show its presence.

Oddly enough, but different species of ticks around the world affected a lot of cats. Often a tick living on the body of the cat without causing visible disease. But this happens only if the animal is completely healthy. Unfortunately, the subcutaneous tick shows its vital activity only when the animal is weakened by previous diseases. As a result, lesions and symmetrically located centers of alopecia can appear on the skin. Most often the hair begins to fall in the ears, around the eyes, on the bridge of the nose, on the chest, stomach, tail. This disease has a scientific name - demodecosis.

Demodicosis in cats  - this is a rare enough, but a dangerous phenomenon. The fact is that the mite lives not only on the animal's skin, but also lays its eggs in the hair follicle. Because of the vital activity of this parasite, cats have various symptoms, which the animal owners must pay attention to.

Subcutaneous mites in cats: symptoms

Depending on the species of mite that is parasitic on the animal, there are different symptoms. So, ticks like Demodex cati do not cause irritation in the animal, although they live in the hair follicles. They do not cause any itching and do not bring any discomfort to the cat.

But there is another kind of mite — Demodex gatoi, who lives on the surface of the skin. That these mites, and cause the skin of the animal appear small pimples and scabs, which the cat will constantly scratch. Also on the body of the animal will begin to appear rapidly expanding bald places. Mainly soft soft tissues around the eyes and in the ears are affected. In more severe cases, the coat begins to fall on the abdomen and chest.

To the manifestation of activity of the mites can also be dandruff in an animal. This manifestation of the disease also carries danger to the masters of the animal. Through small parts of the exfoliated skin in which the tick is located, demodectic can also be transmitted to a person.

Demodicosis in cats can be diagnosed only in veterinary hospitals. This requires a scraping of the skin and a biopsy of the affected tissue. Only after the animal is diagnosed, you can begin treatment. All medicines will be prescribed only by the attending physician.

Subcutaneous mites in cats: treatment

Treatment of demodectic  the cats last a very long time, since the mites themselves have a thick shell protecting them from the effects of various medications. In the treatment of this disease, it should be noted that there are different forms of demodicosis.

The easiest treatable localized forms of the disease. After 6-8 weeks the animal will be completely healthy, and the coat will again grow on the bald areas of the skin. But the fact is that this form of the disease is very rarely recorded in cats. More common is the generalized form of demodicosis.

In generalized form of demodicosis.  treatment will last for several months. For this, various antiparasitic drugs will be used. Also, injections of immunostimulating drugs will not interfere with the cat. Different complexes of vitamins will also help the animal fight demodicosis. To control the treatment, additional scrapings will be required to ascertain the effectiveness of the drugs.

Fortunately, demodicosis in cats is much more easier than dogs. And in certain cases, spontaneous self-healing may occur. But in any case it will be necessary to conduct a course of treatment of this disease in the veterinary clinic.

A subcutaneous tick in cats should not be transmitted to a person. The animals need to be shown to the vet, it will accurately determine the type of parasite, taking the tests, and will prescribe the appropriate treatment.

I have a domestic cat, ran away, found in 10 days. On the ears, the bald areas are huge, and in bunches, barely alive. It was taken to the doctor-put this diagnosis, already 5 days we go to injections, there is a complex treatment, in addition to the antibiotic, two more preparations for immunity, and another for some reason. The condition has improved, but still it is sluggish. I just want to say, self-medication, in my opinion, it is better not to engage in this case.

After our walk in nature (in general - home) our cat was found a tick. The wool fell out of his eyes above the eyes, near the ears and itched. Registered drops (on the withers) Stronghold + Antizud.

Through small parts of the exfoliated skin in which the tick is located, demodectic can also be transmitted to a person. a man and a cat have different kinds of ticks. infection is not possible.
