|It depends. There's two types of mange, Sarcoptic which is highly infectious & Demodex mange which isn't highly infectious. So if the dog DOES have mange if depends on what type.
But the dog may have some other skin disease.
Also, I think it would be wise to ask the neighbor about the dog. If their good dog owners they might know and have already gone to the vet and gotten a diagnosis and treatment, but it's better safe than sorry. If they do know then apologize and explain that you were just concerned about your dogs health and I'm sure they'd understand.
(are you friendly neighbors? and do they usually treat this dog well? good food, water, shelter, ect.?)
