Do chiggers bite dogs?

If a dog has been bitten by a dog or a cat, does a dog still have a chance of being chiggered? I'm not talking about a dog that has fleas or lice or anything like that, just normal biting. Also, when a dog bites a person, can they still be chiggered? I'm really not a fan of the chiggers, because of my past experience.

If I was a dog, I'd be pissed as hell. And the chiggers are horrible!

I think you'll be ok. There are some that get sick and some that die, but there's been a lot of research into the bugs and they seem to be safe to people. Most of the ones you find in the wild will be found on ground or in a moist environment, or maybe where you get on people and clothes. You'll need a good long shower, but the chiggers do get killed if they're in contact with water and then dried on your skin. You'll probably need to find a way to protect yourself for a day or two until your immune system has time to clear the bugs off of you.

You can have multiple bites, even if they are on your back, and they do affect you. They are a very painful. Chiggers only come out in the late evening hours, so the first couple of days you will be fine.

That being said, I have never been bitten by chiggers, so I cannot speak from experience as to the seriousness of this, but I think that most people (humans) should be fine with chiggers. But I will say that I have been bitten by ants, I have been bitten by bees, I have been bit by a mouse, I have been scratched by a cat, I have been bitten by my own cat, I have had lice, and I have had fleas, and none of those things have caused a problem for me as far as getting sick. I also do not have any history of allergies to these creatures.

So, from what I have experienced, I can tell you that you will be just fine.

It will be a long, painful time for you until it is over. If it were me, I would be getting a shower immediately. And a few days after that, I would be getting a shower again. That's how I would handle the situation. I would also apply flea and tick spray to areas where the chiggers bite, which can be anywhere on your body, including the face and head. I think the chiggers are more of a problem for dogs, cats, etc. I've only ever seen them on human children, and one or two cats (the one I had was very scared of them).

Dogs can be chiggered. They can even get chiggered by a person. You just need to be careful. I'd try to find some insect spray that contains permethrin. A lot of people with kids who get chiggered use that stuff on their kids. It's good stuff. And there are a lot of products out there that help protect you and your dog from the chiggers.

The flea and tick spray you mentioned is what I use to protect my dogs from fleas and ticks. It's made by the same company that makes flea and tick spray for dogs. I think the name of the company is Petco or something like that. The one I use has permethrin in it. It works really good.

I hope you don't get chiggered. They're not a pleasant experience at all.

I've never had anything like that happen, but when I was kid, I was playing with my dog outside and my sister (who was older) came outside and she started screaming "CHIGGER!" and ran back inside. I was horrified and I was convinced that it was some kind of weird disease that my dog had and that it would get me too. I went inside and got my dog and I was going to give it to her, but I wasn't sure what it was, so I just held it for my sister and said "Don't worry! It's not a disease!"

I don't know if that's what actually happened, but I've always wondered what was actually going on.
