Pets and Bedbugs

Can bedbugs live or be carried on pets?
This question was left in a comment in a post about bedbugs left by Jessica. The answer is that bedbugs will bit and feed on pets depending on the infestation. They bite any warm blooded animal. As for being carried on a pet I would have to say it's a possibility. I wouldn't put it in the same category as fleas but it is possible for a dog to have bedbugs on them. Bedbugs are more the type to eat and run, so they wouldn't be hanging out too long after a blood meal to really be caught on the dog. As I said though, anything is possible.
