People and Fleas|
Can people get fleas?
Yes... if a household dog gets fleas, the fleas can also bite people. They usually bite people around the ankles, but you can get flea bites anywhere, especially if the fleas are in the bed. The fleas don't usually spend time on people, just enough time for a quick meal.
