Treat ant bites on dogs by applying a cool water compress to the affected area for five to 10 minutes and covering the bites to prevent licking and scratching, according to Greencross Vets. Soak paw bites in cool water prior to covering.
Symptoms of an ant bite include redness and swelling of the affected area, according to WebMD. The most common areas for insect bites on dogs are the nose and feet. It is important for a dog owner to consult with a veterinarian as soon as possible if his animal experiences symptoms such as diarrhea, breathing difficulties, facial scratching or drooling.
