My dogs been bitten by a bull ant what should i do?
Bull ant bites are mainly a problem through the pain and swelling they cause where they bite. They don’t usually cause an allergic reaction. Cold compresses for 5 minutes at the time of the bite can help.
Because it can be sore, the dogs might continually lick the area which could result in a local skin infection.
Monitor your dog and if they are bothered by the area or it’s very swollen then take them to your local veterinarian for a hands on examination.
