I have a cocker spaniel that had 4 puppies. All of them died except one after about 3 weeks. I noticed a white bug on the mother and pups and kept bathing them and brushing them but they still died. What might this insect be? Is this a hereditary condition? I have dipped the mother and have cleaned the pen with permectrin.
I have no idea what the white bug is but I can tell you it is not hereditary. Why don't you bring the bug to your local vet for identification. vetcare ps mites are not visable with the naked eye.
