Main mites associated with dermatopathies present in dogs and other members of the Canidae family

Pamela Thomson, Nicole Carreño, Andrea Nuñez.

Abstract
Dermatological diseases of parasitic origin are one of the most frequent in the clinical practice of dogs and cats. Mites such as Sarcoptes scabiei, Otodectes cynotis, Demodex canis, and Cheyletiella spp., they commonly affect domestic dogs. However, the impact generated by these mites on populations of wildlife animals and the mechanisms involved in their epidemiological dynamics are still not clear. In recent decades, the migration of populations and their interaction with domestic environments and vice versa have generated a worrying threat due to the transmission of some of these ectoparasites. Some reports have suggested that sarcoptic mange represents an emerging threat to wildlife. given the outbreaks of greater magnitude and geographical extension.

The objective of this review is to contribute to the state of the art of the main mites that cause dermatopathies in members of the Canis Lupus Familiaris family and other members of the Canidae family. For this, a systematic search was carried out in the embase and pubmed databases.

Infections caused by mites, mainly scabies, continue to be diseases with a worldwide distribution, affecting mammals and humans. Although they are long-standing diseases, the effects that are generated in wild canids are still unknown. A comprehensive evaluation is required to generate guidelines in favor of the conservation of some species of foxes and wolves present in the different regions of the world.

Key words: Sarcoptic mange, Otocariasis, Demodicosis, Cheiletiella, Canids.
