Tips to Keep Your Pet Safe Outdoors

Are you and your pet spending some time in the great outdoors this summer?  If so, you and your pet are susceptible to many types of insect bites, some of which could be dangerous.   We surfed around the internet to find some articles that will give you tips on how to prevent insect bites and what you should do if you see signs of an insect bite.

The Ionia Sentinel-Standard had this article titled “How to Identify, Respond to Allergic Reactions, Insect Bites on Pets”.  This article reminded us how important it is to check your pet for ticks, and how you should go about removing them.

The Pet Assure Newsletter posted this article that focuses on dogs, and gives you tips on removing bee stings.  It also shows a list of symptoms that can occur from insect bites.

The AVMA posted an article titled “Disease Precautions for Outdoor Enthusiasts and their Companion Animals”.  It’s a reference guide for outdoor enthusiasts that gives a list of disease precautions for you and your pets.

If you notice your pet may have been bit by an insect but are not sure what to do, feel free to reach out to us.  The Reunion Veterinary Hospital is open 7 days a week, and our staff will give you advice immediately.  For more tips on protecting your pets, follow us on Facebook or Twitter!
