I looked out in my backyard and my 2 dogs were standing by this possum, i had heard them barking earlier but thought it was just a cat. When i went to look at it, it was definitely dead and didn’t look like it had any teeth marks or skin ripped off but there was a place that looked like the skin had been scraped off. Can my dogs get any diseases from this?

Please take your dogs to a vet to do some bloodwork just in case. If your dogs have their rabies shots then they should be okay. The possum could be playing dead.
