I just thought I would post a reminder for everyone about harvest mites as I don't normally start thinking about them until September but it seems with the warmth they are early and plentiful this year. Pickle picked them up on her first walk from getting home from holiday. Annoyingly other dog walkers had got them from the same two fields last week but didnt think to warn others until I posted on social media so Sadly we were the second dog in the vets from our local area that afternoon. On the plus side I run a comb through Pickles coat most days so spotted them very quickly and the vets were great getting her in and spraying with frontline and a systemic treatment. I had putting chemicals on her but I definitely hate mites more. Posting a few pictures so folks can see what they look like.
