When you think about all the damage a wildlife infestation can leave behind in your home — chewed wiring, shredded furniture, and structural decay — you probably forget to think about the stress it can put on your pet. From lost sleep to injury, here are a handful of ways an infestation can interrupt their daily routine.

Less Food and Water

Oftentimes, wild animals approach and invade homes in search of food and water. Any scraps left in your pet’s bowl are easier to access than leftovers in the fridge or ingredients in the pantry, which is why wild animals commonly turn to dog and cat food first. This behavior will not only leave your pet deprived, but it can also contaminate the area with harmful bacteria.

Fewer Hours of Sleep

When nocturnal critters crawl into your home, they often remain fairly quiet during the day. In fact, most of these types of infestations go unnoticed by homeowners for weeks at a time. While they scurry and scratch through the night, however, wild animals can put your pet under a lot of stress. Of course, a noisy wildlife infestation can cause your pet to lose sleep, but it can cause even more harm by contributing to their anxiety and uneasiness.

More Bacteria and Germs

More than being a bother, a wildlife infestation is also a threat to your pet. Not only can wild animals introduce fleas and mites to your home, but they can also put your pet under direct stress. If your pet gets into an altercation with a wild animal, they may be left with scratches or bites. And if your pet isn’t exactly caught up with their vaccinations, a wildlife infestation can put them at risk of:

  • Heartworms
  • Distemper
  • Roundworm
  • Leptospirosis
  • Tularemia
  • Histoplasmosis
