Insect or Spider Bites
Insects (bees, wasps, earwigs) or spiders (black widows, brown recluse) can cause localized effects and/or generalized signs of an allergic reaction. Often, by the time you realize a problem, the biting insect has already flown or crawled away, so that a presumptive diagnosis and treatment protocol is often instituted by the veterinarian.
Signs of an Insect or Spider Bite
- Localized redness, swelling and pain
- Signs of allergic reaction
- Breathing difficulties
First Aid: Seek veterinary attention immediately.
