Home Remedy for a Dog with a Spider Bite

Category Health

I need a home remedy to help my dog with a spider bite. She is 7 years old. I have used Epsom salt and given her Benadryl. Please help! I don't have money to take her to the vet.

If the dog isn't having an allergic reaction, a spider bite will usually end up similar to a boil, causing skin infection and local swelling. You can continue the Benadryl, and keep the site clean and dry. You can try applying antibiotic ointment 3 times a day, but make sure she can't lick it off. If it is not getting any better, she may need an oral antibiotic, and you would have to have the vet prescribe that.

If your area has a farm and ranch type store, some of those sell certain types of antibiotics over the counter, but you would want to make sure first that you had the correct one, and the best way to do that would be to call the vet and ask.

Local honey is a natural antibiotic; please give this a try.

Cortizone cream would be worth a try if the irritation is local. It can be applied several times a day.
