    How would I fix this problem? Help! My dog was laying down with me when I noticed a bug on her belly. I tried to kill it and grab it but I kept sliding off. Then I saw it move and then I noticed it was underneath her skin . Please help, I love my dog and I don't like to see her hurt . Ps it looks like a fruit fly/ flea

    Fruit flies and fleas look totally different, so what did it look like? Also, did it go into a wound in her skin? If she has a creature living underneath her skin, she definitely needs a vet.
