Blooming heck, I remember the cases of the dogs dying when they thought somebody had put something down.
Scary that it is something natural that cannot be eradicated

I seen something about this on fb. So is it only found in woodland or would it be fields too?
And do they get bitten by the mites or do the dogs eat it which causes the illness?

Think you can get spray, flea stuff, name escapes me for the mo, quite expensive but for piece of mind......
I was talking about this today with my dog walking friends, we walk in the woods everyday, some dogs have shown mild symptoms (not mine) but I'm suprised the vets aren't more on the ball advising people.
