Typically, most dogs love to be outside roaming around and investing the treasures of nature. The bad news is that many of these treasures are annoying, and even dangerous bugs that can hitch a ride on your dog and be brought into your home. Here are some of the worst bugs your dog can bring indoors:
These small brown insects like to hide in cool, shady areas among the bushes, leaves, and trees until a lovely host (your dog) passes by. The flea will jump on to the dog and then come into your home, very quickly becoming a menace. According to the American Animal Hospital Association, one flea can multiply to 1,000 fleas in your home, in just 21 days. It wont be long until your dog and you are itching and scratching, and picking at scabs. What’s even worse is fleas can also bring about tapeworms and other serious diseases. Save yourself the headache and prevent the infestation before it starts! Use a flea preventive for dogs. It comes in many different forms, so find the one that best suits you and your pet.

Ticks also can be found in shady, wooded areas. They wait patiently for a host to walk by so they can attach. Once attached, it will feed on the host’s blood, and it can even transmit deadly diseases like Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Lyme Disease, and Babesiosis, all from one single bite. Contrary to what some say or think, ticks can be a year-long problem. Keep your dog protected by treating with tick preventive. Just like flea preventives, it comes in various forms.
