Whichever way you look at it, mange is suffering. From a simple point of view, the dog suffers because it has a body. If it didn't, it wouldn't.
We suffer physically because we have a body. We suffer mentally because we have a mind.
No mind, no body - no suffering.
So why do we have a body and a mind? Because we want a mind and a body.
Why do we want them?
Because we have a viewpoint which sees them as wantable.
So what's the answer. Examine them afresh and see what the reality is. Desirable or undesirable?
The next time you have a headache, consider that it might be because you have a head.
