Can Dogs Get Lice?
Lice that you see in human hair can only survive on human scalp. They just can’t live anywhere else. If you see some little insects on your dog, then it must be something else. Head lice need a certain temperature in order to live and they find this temperature only on human beings. So, they can’t live on dogs, cats, rats or any other animals.
Even if a louse or some head lice fall on a dog, they won’t survive for long. They will be dead within a day or maximum 2 days, because they won’t get their favorite food, i.e. human blood.
