How to Get Rid of Chiggers on Dogs?

My Jack Russell has been scratching himself so badly his skin is raw. He does not have fleas. Unfortunately our back yard is infested with chiggers. I didn't know if dogs could get them or not and if so how can they be treated?

In order to remove these mites out of your dog and compound for good, you need to give your dog a bath or a shower. You can also give your dog a series of pyrethrin based dips plus also the topical anti-parasite drugs are also used in treatment of these mites.
