Bees Sting Pets Too!

Wednesday, September 14, 2016
posted by Jim Murphy

dogbeesThe plants and flowers here in southern Delaware draw lots of bees, large ones! Dogs are constantly sniffing the ground. Sometimes they’ll stir up some angry bees. It’s not unusual for your dog to get stung on his face. Many dogs will also swat or dig at an irritating insect, so bug bites and stings occur on the paws as well. You’ll know if your pet was stung because the affected area will swell. Most stings and bites are not serious but if your dog’s reaction is particularly severe or he develops breathing difficulty, call you veterinarian immediately. Your pet may be having an allergic reaction. For mild allergic reactions, your vet will likely prescribe pet medication such as an antihistamine or topical creme. In severe cases, a shot of epinephrine and emergency fluids may be needed.

Remember, your pets count!

Preparing For A Pet Emergency

petemergencyYou never know when you might have an emergency with your cat or dog. It’s important to know what to include in a pet emergency kit.  It should also include any pet medication that you may need. When it comes to emergencies, it’s very important to have your vets phone number and the National Poison Control hot line within easy reach. Other things that you should keep on hand include a saline solution to flush out your pets eyes, a muzzle in case your pet gets badly hurt and a turkey baster to help get pet medication down. You may also want to include forceps, rubber gloves and soft pet food. You should always be prepared for a potential poisoning. Keep a bottle of hydrogen peroxide in your pets safety kit in case your veterinarian asks you to induce vomiting. Remember that if you do need to take your pet to the veterinarian, you’ll need easy access to a sturdy pet carrier.
