Help Your Pets

You pets may suffer with pain. Before helping other animals, pet owners should primarily help their own pets. One of the major problems that pet owners have had to encounter is pests. Ticks, fleas, lice and bed bugs are commonly affect pets. Your favorite buddy may be blighted from these animals and so treatment is needed. Here are some tips to protect your pets from infection and also give them the treatment that they need. If your pets are severely suffering from pests, contact pest control experts for help.

Ticks

Ticks can be quite harmful to your pets. Tick bites irritate pets’ skin and long-term tick bites without treatment can cause severe problems such as paralysis. Ticks feed on the blood from your pets for survival. Your pets will feel itchy at the beginning then their skin will become red and inflamed.

Treatment should be done as soon as possible. Regularly remove ticks from your pets by using tweezers. Place them in alcohol solution to kill them. Wash the bitten areas with warm water and soap then apply an antibiotic cream to avoid infection.

Ants

Ants are one of the great enemies of your pets. They sting and some species like fire ants can be fatal to small pets. Ants come from food bowls or the yard.

Brush the ants from your pet. If they are severely attacked, contact a veterinarian for help. Remove ants from the source. Find pest control experts to help you.

Mites

Mites can cause a skin disease called ‘mange’. This disease affects your pets’ skin by making it scaly and bald. As the mites are so small that you cannot see them, the only signs of them are from these symptoms; itching, hair loss and inflamed skin.

Take your pets to a veterinarian to be checked and to get medical treatment. Otherwise your pets may need an injection.
