Trick bite treatment

Not only are tick bites painful for your dog, but they can also lead to some serious health conditions such as severe infections and Lyme disease. That is the reason why your pet should always be thoroughly checked for ticks after walking outside in spring and summer, especially after playing in tall grass. In case you find a tick in fur of your dog, do not panic!

Firstly, you have to remove the tick with a tweezers or by using a special tick removal tool. Spread the dog’s hair and try to grasp the tick and pull it out in a steady and straight way so that you do not hurt your four-legged pet in the process. Make sure you do not twist the tick to prevent leaving any parts of it embedded in the skin and, in turn, avoid any infections. After that, put the tick into a jar and screw a lid tightly. You can bring it for the evaluation to eliminate any doubts that your dog got infected by something serious.

The next step to take is to clean the pet’s skin area thoroughly. You can use Sanocyn forte product line, which is based on hypochlorous acid (HOCl) and is very well tolerated by pets as well as suitable for daily use. The Solution effectively removes unwanted fungi, bacteria and viruses, while being alcohol-free and pH neutral. Thus, it does not sting and burn. You may also use the Sanocyn forte Hydrogel afterwards which forms a protective film that can prevent secondary infections.

Monitor the affected area as well as your pet’s health in general for various signs of infections, such as swollenness and a rush. Moreover, if you notice symptoms of Lyme disease make an appointment by your veterinarian immediately. The symptoms of a Lyme disease are swollen lymph nodes, fever, lethargy and loss of appetite.

All in all, you can handle a tick bite in your dog on your own, so do not be scared. The most important thing is to notice a tick and act immediately. Additionally, it is crucial to keep an eye on your pet to make sure it has not got infected.
