My dog seems to have been bitten or stung by a bug. Does this require a vet visit?
Just like people, pets can have allergic reactions to bites or stings.
You might see bumps, swelling of the skin, itchiness and in severe cases, vomiting. In these cases, they really need to be checked out by the vet.
Bites or stings in the mouth area and around the face may interfere with breathing. In these cases, they really need to be checked out by the vet.
For severe swellings, or if the animal is quite distressed, the vet can prescribe an antihistamine or a steroid, which can help alleviate the effects of the sting.
