Parasitism between dogs and fleas
Transcript of Parasitism between dogs and fleas
Species Interaction Project
A type of relationship between two organisms of different species in which one organism is helped and the other is harmed, but not killed. Parasites don’t usually kill their hosts or else they would have to find another host. This is NOT an animal eating another one.
A dog is harmed by fleas by getting allergic from their blood sucking bites.
A flea benefits from a dog by sucking blood from them, they inject a small amount of saliva into the skin.
Relationships between dogs and fleas
Fleas and dogs have a symbiotic relationship. The relationship is parasitic which means one organism benefits and the other is harmed from the interaction.
