Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Thank you for the quick response! I have two more questions...sorry, I am a bit of a paranoid germaphobe at times ;-)
1.Do I need to be concerned about parasites at all? I read some scary stuff about roundworm eggs causing blindness, but it sounds like I would have had to actually eat infected soil/feces for this to be an issue...and I definitely didn't eat her sleeper ;-)
2.Ultimately, if I had really bad luck and did manage to get anything from her, would anything I caught be able to be effectively cleared up with treatment? If so, I will relax!
Thank you! Just for clarification, my question about parasites has to do more with my specific incident...meaning, should I be worried about contracting parasites from the specific incident of touching my dog's sleeper and then my own eye? I am thinking no since it sounds like ocular/visceral larva migrans etc. result from eggs that are eaten by humans, not introduced via the eye...but I just want to make sure! I know it's a long shot my dog's sleeper contained contaminated matter anyway, but just want to make sure...
Thank you! I know I was likely overanalyzing this situation, haha, but thank you very much for your patient and thorough responses!
