    Just a heads up

    I heard a rumour from a few people that lice and few other bugs are circulating at a few dog parks in Edmonton (including the one right off of Terwillegar).

    It would probably be best to stay away from them for a while if possible and let the rash of bugs run the course and get taken care of by the owners to prevent further spread.

    hello,

    Lice do not survive off a host and bugs (fleas/ticks)do not survive without a host in this weather. So it is not an infested "area" at this point it is just infested dogs, all of which are transient.
