In some geographic locations, especially the southern states, some insects, such as fire ants, can really create an unpleasant experience for your pet. Sometimes small bumps can appear on the skin after being stung or bitten by a single insect.

You can call your veterinarian about advice for an over-the-counter antihistamine to reduce allergic response. Cortisone cream can be applied to any insect bite area to help provide relief. Cold compresses applied over bee stings alleviate swelling and pain. Be sure to call your veterinarian regarding home treatment first aid.

A life threatening reaction to an insect sting is very rare in animals, but it can happen. If your pet is in serious discomfort or displays breathing issues, contact your veterinarian.
