Can Cows Get Fleas?
One reader asked a question about whether cows could get fleas. He rents and old farmhouse that is on a cattle farm and his dog got fleas. His question was whether the dog could have gotten them from the cows.
Well, anything is possible but fleas on cows is unlikely. Fleas prefer long hair and cows typically have hair that’s much too short for fleas to hang around in. It’s more likely that the dog picked up the fleas in tall grass or from stray cats or other animals that frequent the farm at night. What are your thoughts? Can cows get fleas?
