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!!!

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!

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.

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.

My 4 month old Boxer got stung by a bee today. I thought she was chasing a fly! But when I got stung and it attacked me I got her home ASAP. I found this site while looking up bee stings. I didn't know that dogs could have reactions to bee stings too! I checked her out and could find no stinger but I will keep these remedy's on hand from now on. Thanks again you really helped me out!

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?

My little 9 lb terripoo got stung by a bee this morning while we were in the backyard. She yelped in pain and I saw the bee on her foot. I took her inside and washed the wound w/ soap and water and googled info asap. I came across your site and found these helpful remedies. I ran to the store and got her benadryl right away. She seems to be a bit groggy now but I believe she will be better in no time. Thanks so much for the valuable information!

Sitting here with my great dane/lab mix, thirty minutes after giving her benedryl for an apparent bee sting. She woke us up tonight vomiting, and my daughter noticed her jowl area was swollen. My husband immediately admistered the tablet , but she threw it up. She has finally kept this tablet down, and is now starting to get sleepy. My concern was her starting to have difficulty breathing, but so far, only some severe drooling. Thank God for Benedryl, indeed.

Thank you sooo much for your website. My 4 mo old puppy was stung by hornets during his morning walk. The dosage of benedryl was a lifesaver! I contacted the emergency ver, and they would not tell me anything!!! Just wanted me to bring him in...no suggestions or dosages, said they would be "liable".!! I applied the baking soda (not easy to do on puppy) and ice pack (easier), then gave him a dose of the liquid benedryl. So far, swelling is going down, and he appears to be fine. Again, thanks for the 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!

My dachshund was stung by a bee over the weekend. She was limping, wouldn't eat, vomited a lot of yellow liquid, and had a rash on her belly and chest. We didn't know what was wrong so we took her to the hospital. They diagnosed her immediately with anaphylactic shock and began treatment with an IV. She needed to be kept overnight for observation and for a plasma transfusion because she her blood was not clotting. $1,400 later she is back to normal. We are so glad that we took her to the hospital as soon as we did.

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'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..

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.
