Default What are these things on my bed??

So you all know Norris got away for a day. I think he may have picked something up while he was gone because he's been itching like crazy. I haven't seen fleas or flea dirt. He did go to the vet this morning and she gave me some pred for the itching and she is going to look into what other treatments would be safe for Norris (have to be careful since he is at risk for another flare up of his autoimmune hemolytic anemia). The vet really thought it looked like Norris had a flea allergy.

But just now, I noticed little round black things all over my bed. They don't move and they seem to have a little white dot in the middle. They don't look like flea dirt, they kind of look like tiny ticks but like I said, they don't move. Any idea what this is? I think this is coming off my dog. Needless to say I'm stripping the bed now. Gross

Some sort of mite maybe? if it is a mite, pred is just going to make them worse.
