Lice Dogs and Cats: chewing (Mallophaga), and sucking (Anoplura)

Lice occur on dogs and cats around the world. In Canada dogs are hosts to both sucking and chewing lice (Linognathus setosus and Trichodectes canis, respectively), and cats only to chewing lice ( Felicola subrostratus), which are most commonly seen on farm cats.


Myiasis is the infestation of living vertebrates with the larvae of flies, the species of which vary with location around the world.
