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!!
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.
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!
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.
Thank you for your great informatin on how to treat your dog if he should have a bee sting. We had no idea what to do and your article was so helpful! Thank you so much!!!!
