In summer, parasites become rampant. Now more and more people are able to raise pets scientifically. Dogs and cats do deworming inside and outside to make more preparations for them to spend the summer safely.
But in fact, there is another hiding place for microorganisms such as parasites that we often overlook, and that is the dog bed. Four hazards that are often hidden in the dog bed.
The first is parasite damage. After walking the dog outside or contacting other dogs, small bugs such as fleas and mange mites may have been hidden on the dog's body. They can survive for many days at least, and they like to hide in the gaps in the dog bed. While your dog is asleep, the parasite damage the dog's health.
The second is fungal infection. This poison can be hidden in your dog bed for up to 2 years. In addition to the heart-threatening itching, if the dog is infected, it may also cause redness, itching, hair loss, and crusty. This kind of fungus infection is common to humans and dogs.
The third hazard comes from roundworms. There are many ways for dogs to be infected with roundworms, such as contact with other dogs, raw food, infected feces of other animals, and other direct and indirect ways. Once the roundworm invades your dog’s intestines, it can cause diarrhea and vomiting, and severely cause digestive system disorders, weight loss, and loss of hair. In addition, roundworm eggs will hide in the dog bed, affecting the health of family members.
Finally, there is the danger of bacteria. According to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), 25% of commercial foods contain Salmonella and Listeria. Salmonella and Listeria can easily infect your dog through diet. Symptoms include high temperature, refusal to eat, weight loss, diarrhea, vomiting and lethargy. What's more important is that these two kinds of bacteria will have resistance to dogs themselves and show no symptoms, while humans cannot resist, causing bacterial infections.
In addition to the above-mentioned 4 types of parasites and other microorganisms, dog beds often emit peculiar smells. Bed pads are usually fabric products. Due to their physical properties, they tend to absorb a large amount of pet grease, hair, dirt, etc., and become a source of odor.
Under special circumstances, pet beds will also absorb more life stains and emit a more unpleasant odor than the pet itself through complex chemical reactions. In certain humid climates, the dog bed absorbs moisture and dust. Dogs are naughty and have food-protecting habits. They always like to take the fruits rewarded by the owner into the nest to eat, which makes it difficult to clean the pet nest pad.
In summary, it is necessary to clean the dog bed regularly. And not only need to be cleaned, but also chemical disinfection can be selected to chemically disinfect these fiber products to reduce the hidden hazards of pet beds.
