scratching, biting, odor, no fleas, could be demadex mange. If so, it can get out of hand quickly

With demodecosis, the loss of hair usually precedes any scratching and there is not alot of scratching unless there is an infection. I have never seen odor with demodecosis. MY boy had it as a puppy. Localized a few patches, very little scratching.
