My cavalier king charles got stung by bee for the second time!!! I couldn't believe it but yes.... after the lesson learned we used the oral strips of benadryl that disolve immediately and it worked great!!!! we also gave him lots of water and made sure he didn't faint or become unconsious like the first time.... if this were to happen run to the emergency room!!!

Just gave my 4 year old 40lb basset 25 mg of Benydryl after her mussle swelled after a bee sting on her foot (I saw it happen). I'm wondering how long before the swelling goes down typically and when or if should I repeat the dose? Her breathing is fine, she's sleeping right now, was hungry enough to want dinner, so she seems fine.

My 10yo pitbull was stung by a bee while soaking up some sun in our new yard. His face and tongue swelled immediately I am a nurse, so i usually have some Benadryl on hand. I gave him the same dose he recieved for several black fly bites previously while camping, and the swelling was profoundly reduced. I want to thank the person who suggested the instant dissolvable strips, because I had no idea they even existed. Kudos dog lovers!

I was shocked this afternoon to find my beagle's face swollen to twice its size. I assumed it was a sting, so I went on-line and found your site right away. I gave him children's benadryl mixed with peanut butter & milk and he lapped it up right away. Within 2 hours the swelling had gone down about half. Thanks so much for the recommendation. I wouldn't have thought of using it on my pup.

Bee Sting Remedy!!! thank you so much for the detailed information. My 6 mo. Havanese decided to eat a 'limping' bee from the patio. she got stung on the nose and I didn't realize what had happened until i saw the bee crawling on her nose. I googled bee stings on dogs and found your site. SO helpful.. I don't have liquid benedril but put a good dose of benedryl creme on her nose and she seems to be fine. I am continuing to watch her closely to make sure there aren't further reactions. thanks for the detail info on dose per pound. She's a puppy so I was worried about over dosing! For the future... I will KEEP liquid Benedryl in the house at all times!

Bee Sting Remedies for Pets: Bendryl 12.5 mg Quick dissolve strips. Our little dog is very allergic to bee stings (we even have an epipen) but this new product is fantastic. She got stung today (and we always carry a benadryl with us) we gave it to her and took her to Vet. We got praise from our Vet - the strip worked so fast - she still had to get two injections because she is so allergic to bee stings but her blood pressure and temperature were in a safe zone. I wanted to share the positive effects of the strip. They are easy to carry. Our vet was really impressed - Hope this helps someone else.

Thank you for helping me out because my 2 year old dog was stung by a bee today. She is only 5lbs so i gave her benadryl. However, I was wondering since she was stung on her left leg (she is limping on it - not using it to walk AT ALL!) will that ever go away? If so, how many days will it take for her leg to work normally again?

As a former Firefighter/EMT we used to treat anaphylaxis in the field with epinephrine or Benadryl. I am allergic to bee stings and have had to use this several times. One day my lab/mastiff came into our house and was beginning to show signs of swelling. A few seconds later she began to look like a sharpei. I immediately gave her a dose of 25mg of benadryl and saw most of the swelling go down. Because my dog weighs 125lbs, I gave her a second dose of 25mg of benadryl and saved her life for the second time (once when she had Parvo I kept her alive with antibiotics and IV fluids). Epinephrine is the prefered drug for treating anaphylaxis, however this must be obtained through a prescription, which you can get for dogs, but if you need a great OTC treatment, benadryl works very well. Anaphylaxis is a life-threatening problem and if not treated immediately you can loose your pet. Be careful how much of a dose you give your pet as some small animals can OD.

I just wanted to thank you from the bottom of my heart. From you site I learned that benadryl might help my dog with her struggle to breath and help the swelling after multiple wasp stings was a life saver. Other sites told to use Benadryl, but not how much. The 1 mg per 1 lb was the key to saving my dog's life - thank you!!

My 14-lb. miniature poodle stepped on a bee today [back foot] and ran into the house holding the "offending" foot high in the air, then repeatedly licking it. I immediately made a baking soda paste in a small dish and immersed his foot it it. After 1/2 or so, I left to run over to the store and when I came back, saw that he had vomited partially digested food he had eaten after I left. He also developed some red patches on his belly that he kept trying to scratch, kept drinking lots of water, and panted loudly and rapidly. I checked online and found this website, administered a finger-tip of benadryl from my 25 mg. capsules, his panting has ceased and he is relaxing. Not a direct weight-dose correlation to a 125-lb. dog but reassuring that benadryl can be used, cautiously. Thanks.

Our schnauzer was stung this afternoon by a bee on his stomach (the stinger was still protruding) and we had no idea what to do. I tend to google everything, and I frantically ran to my computer, looking for answers. I am SO glad that we found your site. We made the baking soda poultice and gave him 25 mg of the Benadryl. He seems to be doing great now, but I also now know what to do in case he would have had an allergic reaction. We never would have known what to do had we not found your site. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

I've got a beekeeping business in WA state, and today my 16 week old bird dog was stung at least 25 times by honey bees.. This isn't my first experience with animals and bee stings, and the best thing that I`ve found yet is the liquid benadryl. The dogs seem to prefer the grape flavor, and will lap it right out of a saucer. It`s also much easier to judge the dosage, and seems to act a little faster than the tablets. Time is very important when dealing with animals, and benadryl has not failed me yet..

Your article on pet treatment for bee stings was very informative.I learned a few new remedies I didn't know about. I knew about benadryl for humans and baking soda paste , but wasn't sure about the amount needed for cats and dogs ! Thank You very much for this great information !

I, too, can vouch for the wonders of Benadryl, for dogs, people, and horses alike. I'd like to add that, having been stung on multiple occasions by wasps, I've found that a warm, wet teabag applied to the area of the sting will usually keep the pain at bay (I think it's the tannins in the tea). I don't know if it has the same effect on bee stings, but I've used it (in combo w/ Benadryl) on my dogs when they've been stung, and it really seemed to help. Thanks for your site!
