When a dog has to fight with a mite infection, it is quite often the grass mite who is at cause. The attack from the grass mite almost always provokes an extreme strong itching, which causes the dog to lick and scratch its skin. This causes loss of fur, bald spots, open wounds and infection.Mites cause the itching. For example the grass mite, also known as “autumn mites”, or “autumn grass mites”.
The problem with grass mites in dogs is widely spread all over the world and does not pertain only to certain regions. In our part of the world, the grass mites usually occur during the summer and autumn, from May to October. The grass mites love low vegetation and are mostly to be found in gardens and meadows.
Grass Mites in dogs - Facts about the Grass Mites
How do we recognize the grass mites in dogs? The grass mite, or autumn grass mite who attacks our dogs has a larvae of 0.3 millimetres and its colour is orange. Large grass mites are approximately 2 millimetres in size and very difficult to detect. Even for an experienced veterinarian, it is extremely difficult to locate the grass mite on the dog. Unfortunately, the veterinarian usually carries out expensive tests to detect the grass mites, as well as possible allergies.
Grass Mites in dogs - How do the Grass Mites get to the dog? The grass mite plants its eggs on blades of grass and on moss. As soon as the eggs of the grass mite are hatched, they climb on to blades of grass and other plants and wait from a height of 5 cm to 20 cm, to spot a potential host. As soon as a dog (or cat, or human being) enters this territory, the mite very quickly jumps to its body. As soon as the dog is infected with the grass mite, the mite drills into the skin of the dog with the help of its “mouth tools”. This activates salivary secretion, which is causing the dog to itch. The grass mites in the dog feed on these dissolved cell juices.
Gras Mites in dogs - how does itching start in the dog?
The grass mite leaves a salivary secretion on the dog, which after several hours (up to 24 hours) triggers an extremely strong itching. At this point, the grass mites is usually no longer on the dog but have already dropped off, after doing its sucking. A bite point is usually not easy to spot, as the grass mite only penetrate the fraction of a millimetre into the dog’s top skin layers. In contrast to a mosquito bite, the itching by a grass mite takes between 10 and 14 days, and can also trigger an allergic reaction in the dog. Since the dog is constantly trying to scratch, bacterial inflammation is very likely to occur.
