DID YOU KNOW THIS BUG COULD KILL YOUR DOG?
MEET THE BUG:
This little sucker is known as a kissing bug. Dog owners, take note, because if you see this bug, you are going to want to keep an eye on your four-legged friend.
IT'S NOT WHAT YOU THINK
While the kissing bug sucks blood from dogs and even humans, this is not what makes the bug dangerous. In fact, they cause no pain and cannot get your dog sick from transferring blood.
HOW IT BECOMES FATAL
Kissing bugs carry a parasite known as Trypanosoma cruzi; which is a parasite that causes Chagas disease. Scientists at Texas A&M found that about 50% of kissing bugs are infected with the Chagas parasite, and this is what can make a dog extrememly sick or worse.
