Bees, Wasps and Snake Bites

Bees and Wasp Bites

Watch out for bees and wasp bites, particularly if your dog is bitten around the facial area. If bitten, watch very closely as your dog can have a serious reaction to a bee or wasp bite.

Do not leave food and bones around your yard as wasps are attracted to them.  If in any doubt, contact your Vet.

Snake Bites

Watch out for Snakes – if you see your dog barking excitably at something at ground level it could be a snake. Respond quickly and get your dog well clear of the area. If you think there is any chance that your dog could have been bitten contact your Vet quickly.

The Dangers of Chicken Necks

I have been warning dog owners for many years now regarding the dangers of chicken necks, however many Breeders and Veterinarians keep advising owners to give them to dogs. The University of Melbourne study warns against feeding dogs raw chicken meat especially chicken necks. It is not hard for a pup to choke. Read more about the dangers of feeding your pup chicken necks here.


Dog Bites and Children

All too often we hear of another child bitten by a family dog. So many people clearly do not understand about the importance of managing family pets around young children. More children are hospitalised in Australia each year resulting from dog bites than car accidents. You may be surprised to know that most dog bite incidents occur within the family home with small children by their family dog.


Children and Dogs

Don’t take it for granted that because your dog is good with your children that he or she will be fine with all children. Don’t be paranoid, however, exercise caution with dogs around children, particularly those under 8 years. Often children don’t realise their strength and can damage internal organs on pups with an over-affectionate cuddle.
