Summertime often means more time outside…and also more bees, wasps, hornets and other bugs that bite and sting and can make life miserable not just for us, but also our pets.
There are various insects that can cause problems for pets, who may try to catch them — sometimes with painful results. And unfortunately, sometimes these insects’ activities or nests are close to the ground, where they can easily capture your pet’s attention. And then there are spiders, which can be found everywhere in the environment and it can be hard to totally prevent your pet from coming in contact with them.
Here are some tips on how to deal with some common injuries pets can sustain from these pests, and how to help your pets keep a friendly distance from them.
