As the summer continues more and more mosquitoes come out to pester homeowners. They are nuisances that invade our social gatherings like bonfires or family day at the park. We frequently think of these insects as nothing more than an inconvenience, but mosquitoes can also be a danger to your health.
Contrary to popular belief, mosquitoes are not a mere annoyance that aggravates you and your family, they can also cause significant health problems.
Many people have allergic reactions to mosquito saliva, causing itchy whelps to form when bitten. Although these are the most common symptoms of a mosquito bite, the itching is not the most dangerous thing about them. In fact, mosquitoes can carry and transmit several diseases.
Mosquitoes can carry diseases such as:
- Dengue virus
- Zika virus
- West Nile Virus
These are some of the serious illnesses that can be transmitted via mosquito bite. While we may not know many people that have contracted such illnesses, it is important to remember
Humans do not endure these risks alone; dogs can also contract diseases through mosquito bites.
The diseases and parasites that dogs can contract are:
- Heart worms
- Eastern equine encephalitis
- West Nile virus
These diseases are not only dangerous to your pet’s health but can be costly to treat.
