has anyone heard of snow fleas? and if so would u treat them the same as summer fleas. I myself have never heard of them, but a friend was told her dog has snow fleas cuz her dog is scratchin and chewing.

according to anything I googled... They do not infest a animal!! sooooo ID say CASE OF DRY Skin!! which is very common right now cause of the cold warm weather and being in with a furnace or heat on!!

or is the animal lacking something in its diet? that would be the other ? Id ask!

Quite common!, especially if you have wood or electric heat, check your humidity level and get a humidifier if necessary.

I see these snow fleas all the time out at camp. Freaked me right out the first time my husband pointed them out to me. And to think some people eat snow! YUCK!
