If they were ticks, they carry Lyme Disease which can lead to serious health issues or death to not only dogs but also humans. My mom and brother have Lyme Disease. Make sure you take them to a vet to test their blood for Lyme and make sure all of the ticks are gone and not embedded in their skin or even yours!
I know I am just one if your millions of subscribers and I doubt anyone will pay attention to me, but I have a little advice. We got a dog about a year ago and he had like 30 something tics. Have you guys checked all your pets for tics? If you haven’t then I suggest you do because tics migrate. Love y’all ❤️
