Summer brings stings

by | Jun 16, 2019

beeSummer brings with it a host of insects, and one problem we see more commonly at this time of year is pets being stung.

What can you do at home if you suspect your pet has been stung?

Pull out the sting by pressing below the poison sac and bathe the area in water, or with a solution of bicarbonate of soda for a bee sting, or diluted vinegar for a wasp sting.
Applying ice to the area can help to soothe.

If your pet is stung in the face or throat, please contact us as it may swell and interfere with breathing.
