There are two basic types of mange:
Sarcopic (?) which can be treated & cured
Demo... something which can be treated but not cured

Mange mites are everywhere but sometimes they overwhelm a dog (especially the sarcopic? one).

Yes sarcopic (sp?) mange can spread from dog to dog & can infect an entire kennel unless it is caught and treated promptly. Yes, bringing in an infected dog can infect every other dog in the household. Takes about a month to start showing up in the other dogs.

Talk to your vet about how to proceed. You may want a foster that can keep the dogs housed seperately until the infected dog is treated and mange free.

This answer is hindsight from experience....
