Found a bug on my Dexter
Found a little bug crawling on Dexters tail. I put it in a small bottle and took pictures. I searched Google for fleas and bed bugs, did not look like either.
Sent the photo to the vet, he says it's just a beetle of some sort.
Really scared me, we don't want any critters on Dex....
I attached a photo.

Yuck. It could be anything really... Is he on a flea preventative? That's definitely not a flea, but kinda creepy that it was crawling on Dex.

Mine get bugs and seeds mostly stuck on their coats... I think they're just hitchhikers though.

OMG what a ugly bug
Poor Dexter. What a ugly looking beetle. Glad you found it before it got in your house.
