What is the best way to treat a dog insect bite that is near his eyelid?


Answer by  katharine (3981)

Usually insect bites will heal on their own, but if it gets swollen a vet can give your dog a steroid to help with the swelling.

Clean the wound with some warm water, then treat it with a little bit of anti-biotic cream and monitor it for infections. If you notice that swelling and redness have increased, it's best to consult a Vet to see if any other medication is needed.

In case of bee or wasp stings, apply aloe vera gel. Apply the dog's bite site with milk of magnesia and calamine lotion several times in a day to ease the irritation. Bathe the area with the solution by adding one part baking soda to several parts water.
