One insect bite could transmit disease to your dog
Diseases carried by biting insects can take a serious toll on your pet’s health. A single bite could result in a lifetime of chronic health problems. Some insect-borne diseases are even deadly. The subsequent health care costs can also be difficult to keep up with. That’s why prevention is so much wiser than leaving your pet unprotected.
It’s not a matter of if an unprotected pet will get sick from biting insects, but when. Below are just a few diseases that are transmitted to pets through the bite of an infected insect.
5 pet diseases caused by insect bites
- Heartworms – Many people are shocked to learn that deadly heartworm disease is actually transmitted to pets by mosquitoes. Heartworm infection is difficult and expensive to treat. In some cases, there is no safe treatment option.
- Tapeworm – Tapeworms are transmitted through flea bites. A tapeworm infection robs your pet of vital nutrients needed to maintain good health.
- Lyme disease – Pets get Lyme disease from being bitten by an infected tick. It is more often seen in dogs than in cats and can result in symptoms such as fever, loss of appetite, swelling of joints, and lameness.
- Flea allergy dermatitis – Flea saliva left on your pet’s skin following a bite could lead to itching, inflammation, and hot spots that can cause pain and misery.
- Canine Bartonellosis – Transmitted to dogs by infected fleas, lice, sand flies, and ticks, Bartonella infection results in an enlarged spleen and/or liver, cough, seizures, arthritis, vomiting, diarrhea, and possible nose bleed. It also causes inflammation of the brain, heart muscle, eyes, nose, and lymph nodes.
This is just a sample of the many maladies transmitted to pets by biting insects. Protecting your dog with a monthly oral or topical flea preventative is essential, but adding an extra measure of repellent is ideal to help keep pests off your pet.
