Cheyletiellosis Ayurveda Treatment By Herbal Remedies


Cheyletiella is a genus of mites that lives on the surface of a Dog’s skin. Well, these mites can also be found on the skin surface of other animals including cats, rabbits, and many more. These mites have eight legs and vary in size according to age as adult mites are a bit larger than younger ones. If your pet (dog, cat, rabbit) is having this contagious condition then you are very likely to have this infection as you come in direct contact with your pet somehow. This condition can cause various associated complications that will be explained in this article. Also, we will discuss how you can control the growth of mites and how to recover safely from this infection if you and your pet are prone to it.



Cheyletiellosis is also known as walking dandruff due to dandruff-like skin scales. This type of dermatitis is highly contagious. The condition starts with skin scaling that occurs mainly on the upper back of the body of the pet. The symptoms can completely vary from one pet to another pet. However, the symptoms when humans are affected are also almost similar that include skin bumps on different areas of the body. Cheyletiellosis is a mild pruritic (itchy) skin disease that is caused by Cheyletiella mites. This condition affects rabbits, cats, dogs, hares, and many animals. The difference is that the species of the agent differs.

  • Rabbits are infected by Cheyletiellosis parasitovorax
  • Cats with Cheyletiellosis blakei
  • Dogs by Cheyletiellosis yasguri
  • Hares by Cheyletiellosis strandtmanni

These species vary slightly from one another in size and are most commonly seen in animal infections. The symptoms are minimal in some animals and more in hypersensitive animals that depend upon the causative agent.

Ayurvedic Aspect 

In Ayurveda, these parasitic infections can be correlated with Krimi rog that occurs due to unhygienic surroundings and lifestyle. No doubt that the pets are kept hygienically by the owner but when they come in contact with unhygienic road animals they can carry the agent. In Ayurveda, this infection is treated not superficially (externally as in modern) but is treated internally by cleansing the blood to exclude the infection from its roots.


The agent Cheyletiella yasguri is the main cause of this skin infection. Your pet can come in direct or indirect contact with this agent through-

  • Getting an infection from another infected dog
  • Numerous animals in an animal shelter can be infected altogether by getting in contact with each other.
