How to treat your pet at home if they have a bruise.
Insect stings are common in pets, especially in dogs. Stings are not a major problem for most pets, but some pets (just like humans) will develop an allergic reaction.
Steroids are a group of medicines that help with a range of conditions in pets. They are most commonly used for reducing inflammation and managing the immune system.
Quickly assess the wound. If there are large areas of skin missing and/or you can see tendons muscles or bones, cover the area with a clean dry dressing and go immediately to your nearest vets.
Very minor wounds (cuts, grazes, burns, bites and bruises) often heal themselves. More serious wounds should always been seen by a vet.
