Insect Bites in Yellow Labs

If your Yellow Lab loves to play outside then he probably has come back inside with his fair share of cuts, scrapes, and possible insect bites. Signs of an insect bite can include itching, swelling, and even unrest if your pup is agitated by the itching. If this happens, look for possible bites on your dog so they can be identified and treated. If the bite is swollen or irritated, contact your vet for treatment advice. Your vet may suggest washing the area with baking soda and water to relieve itching and reduce swelling. Your vet may also recommend a topical cream. Keep an eye out for any additional symptoms or possible allergic reactions. It’s a good idea to make sure your pup is up to date on his heartworm prevention medication as well. One bite from a mosquito could put him at risk. Talk with your veterinary clinic Hamilton County, IN for more information. or click this website Noah’s Animal Hospital – Carmel.
