YES, dogs get lice. It is a different kind of lice than humans get, and much easier to treat, and it is not transferable to humans or cats. Dog lice are species specific, so you, your kids, and your cats cannot get lice from your dog. And a person with a human form of lice cannot pass it to their dog. Human lice crawl fast; dog lice are almost motionless. The human form of lice likes clean hair. A dog’s coat is not clean enough for human lice to live on.
