ASK NIGEL

Real Peo­ple’s res­i­dent ‘dog­gie doc­tor’, Nigel, answers your pet’s prob­lems

Real People - - ANIMAL CRACKERS! -

Dear Nigel,

I’m bark­ing and buzzing about sum­mer, but not so ex­cited by the dog­gone wasps zoom­ing around – they’re a menace! My owner’s wor­ried about me get­ting stung when I try to bite them, though. Mazzy, Ip­swich, Suf­folk

Dear Mazzy,

If you’re stung, your owner should re­move the sting and bathe the area with cool wa­ter. If it’s near your mouth or neck, visit the vet, as you may be at risk of an al­ler­gic re­ac­tion. If you’re strug­gling to breathe, get to the vet’s pronto. Love Nigel xxx
