My dog was lost over the week and we just found him at the dog pound the other day. He came home covered with these black bugs that look like little crabs. The are all over him. I have bathed him several times w/ medicated shampoo, tried drowning the things by standing him in the tub up to his neck for 10 minutes. I have tried a flea comb and it seems the only way to get them off is to keep picking them off as they seem to attach to the skin. What are they and how can I get rid of them. I have three other dogs and don't want them to become infested too.
Well, it sounds like your pet has some sort of parasite. The exact type of parasite I do not know without an exam. Fleas and ticks are common this time of year. Have your pet checked by your vet asap. vetcare
