We live in Florida and my part Lab rolls in Moss from the trees. Can she get some kind of bug from this? Also i give her a little homemade soup with her dry food, can this hurt her?

Thank You

Dear Pam,

 I have never lived in the South, but I would not let my dog roll in the leaves in the North because of mold bacteria, and ticks so I would discourage your dog from rolling in the moss and getting spores in her coat which she can share with you.  Maybe she would like to be brushed daily instead.<br /><br />  

 A little homemade soup on the food sounds good depending upon what you put in it.  Skip salt and onions; those would not be good.<br /><br />

Best wishes,
Dr. Char
