I tried a search here, and online. Can't find any answers?
Can ants effect my puppy in any way?
He was laying on the front lawn yesterday. Right after that I was grooming him, and pulled a few ants out of his coat. Can they effect him, at all?

Was he laying on an ant house? They can bite, but that's about it.

That would depend on the type of ants they are. That would also depend on if your dog is alergic to the bite of a specific insect.

Here we have fire ants. They swarm. If a dog laid on a fire ant bed, they'd be swarmed.

They may bite him and possibly leave a small welt. I know the ants we have here are edible. Our beagle use to lick them up lol! I'd just check your pup over if your concerned, unless there were lots of them I doubt they would be a problem.
