    just reading up about bev’s “a” quiz and demodex causes hair loss in patches.  will and bonnie are both itchy and can roughly trace it to when we met sammy.  harry and me have also got little bites on us ……. could it be flea allergy – i keep looking for fleas but cant see any

    demodex isn’t infectious generally – i would worry more about something like cheyletiella mites.  :-\

    i did that light thing and didnt see anything but that might not mean they aint there !  on sammy they are healing over.  bonnie has taken to laying on the blanket i brought from kennels for sammy its one of them old ppl scratchy ones i wonder if she’s got hot – scratched – infected ….

    if they’ve all been lying on the blanket it could be washing powder they’ve used or something.  🙂

    Just because you can’t see any don’t mean there ain’t any there, flea comb – white sheet and a bowl of soapy water to drown any you may find 😉

    didn’t see the bit about the bites on you. demodex wouldn’t do that – cheyletiella can affect people.

    ok,

    i gave bonnie a comb (mainly because she stands best) and 1 thing that moved came out !!!!  it was black and sortof beetle-like about 1-2 mm long very visible once in a pile of old coat on white paper … it definately flew / jumped off the paper onto me itch itch … grrr !!

    never seen a flea before so off to investigate

    rest of the coats look ok with a few black specks and some scurfy stuff (bonnie always has that – not new)

    i been thinking – when harry started getting the bites is definately before sammy came but could have been after i visited her.
