Have you noticed that your dog is suffering from grass mites? At alphazoo we give you an overview of what grass mites are, how they can affect your dog and of course how you can treat them effectively.

What are grass mites?

Grass mites, also known as fall grass mites, are tiny parasites that are mainly active during the warm months. They affect our four-legged friends and cause itching and inflammation, which can lead to skin irritation and discomfort for your dog.

Grass mite symptoms

The typical signs of grass mite bites are extreme itching, irritation and redness of the skin. The affected areas are often the paws, the abdominal region, the back and the ears.

Diagnosis of grass mites

Grass mites are diagnosed based on the clinical picture and, if necessary, on a skin swab that is examined under a microscope. If you notice itching and redness on your dog's skin, you should consult a veterinarian.

Grass mite treatment

Treatment for grass mites most often involves topical medications applied to affected areas to relieve itching and remove the mites. In some cases, oral medication may also be necessary.

Preventing grass mites

The rule to prevent grass mites is to look for less contaminated areas and to shower your dog thoroughly after the walk. Special dog shampoos and regular use of grass mite spray can also help prevent infestation.
