Can Scabies In Pets Be Transmitted To Humans?

Hi Atep Katter,
Scabies, also known as scabies, is a skin infection caused by a mite called Sarcoptes scabiei. This organism is a type of flea that is very small and invisible to the naked eye. It can infect the skin and make tunnels under the skin to then multiply there.
Infected patients can transmit the disease through direct contact such as holding hands for a long time, sleeping in the same bed or by having sex. This disease is also often found in pets such as cats, guinea pigs, hamsters or dogs. But keep in mind that the types of mites are different. So that patients who come into direct contact with animals suffering from scabies generally only experience mild and temporary skin infections.
Characteristics such as a red rash and itching in certain areas of the body usually start on the hands.
So, I hope it's useful
