Thread: Mange in Roe doe or just lice?

    Mange in Roe doe or just lice?

    Hi,

    In January I took a client out stalking and we got this 3 year old Roe doe and I was wondering what your views are on it as I have never seen anything like this in deer before.

    Thanks, Brent

    I have seen that a few times last year in deer I have shot but never on the head always on the rear quarters and like yours not showing raw patches in fact like yours if you look closely the new coat is coming through on the perimeter.
    Not sure if it is mange though perhaps the resident vet would oblige a view on it.
    The animals I have shot was in good health and a good weight other than this skin problem

    Could be hormonal
    I see your in Dumfries where I shot mine was also in Dumfries where abouts is your patch?

    Here's a elderly doe I shot 3 or 4 weeks ago in Hampshire. In good health, no apparent soreness or inflammation of the skin, just bald spots!? Could it be a mis-timing between the winter coat moulting and the summer coat growing through due to age and/or genetics?
