Signs of Mosquito Bites on Dogs
In most cases, your dog will not notice a mosquito bite.1 If your dog is affected by mosquito bites, you may see these signs:
- Scratching, licking, or biting at the site of the bite
- Rubbing their ears or nose against a rough surface
- Red bumps or welts on the skin, like mosquito bites on a human
Although these bites can be a nuisance to both humans and dogs, the real danger of mosquitoes lies in the disease transmission. Mosquitoes are a vector for heartworm disease, which can have devastating effects on your pet.
