The overall prevalance of dermatitis was 24.55 per cent (96/391) The prevalence of parasitic dermatitis was found to be 35.41 per cent with maximum prevalence recorded in July (42.55 %). Dogs less than one year of age were found to be more susceptible to canine parasitic dermatitis. Erythema, scailing, crust formation, hyper- pigmentation, itching, and hair loss were the main clinical features of demodectic mange. While in sarcoptic mange intense pruritis was found along with erythema, rashes, excoriation, crust and hair loss.
