long thin black bugs?!?!
Two days ago we noticed long, thin, black bugs crawling on Groo. They don't look like fleas! We used a topical flea treatment on him yesterday morning and didn't see any bugs on him by the end of the night but then this morning I found a few crawling on him. I don't know what they are, they're not chiggers, bed bugs, they don't look like fleas (they're not jumping and we're not itching or infested), but they must be biting him because the poor little guy has been biting at himself and is not getting bald spots! I feel so bad, what can I do and what can they be? I've been placing money aside for his neuter and whatnot but I don't have quite enough money for a super-expensive vet appointment and treatment yet! HELP!!
Oh, when I googled the description of them "seed ticks" also came up but they don't look like them. Honestly, I couldn't find a picture that looked anything like it!
