What do you do for bee stings on your animals

Post by amybyrd21 on Mon Jun 15, 2009 8:57 am

Smokie went to work the hives with us this morning. He decided to try to eat a few and ended up getting stung on the nose, in the mouth and on the inside of a back leg. He threw up a few times after the fact. So I was wondering if there were anything to do for them. His nose swolle also.

You can take plantain and either chew it up Very Happy or put it in a blender with some water and put that on the stings. It usually helps more to do this right after it happens. How big of an animal is Smokie? If I thought they were really reacting, I might give a bit of benadryl.

he is my little pom dog about 20lb if that. He tried to eat them and swallowed a few we think. He is not allowed out in the bee yard any more because he got Junior stung (his first time ever with the hives)

Once you have located the swollen area, look toward the center to locate the bee stinger. You may have to look from the side or otherwise change your viewpoint in order to find the stinger. Be sure to pull the stinger straight out when your dog is stung by a bee in order to prevent accidentally breaking off the stinger.

After you have removed the stinger, you should next apply a paste made from baking soda and water over the entire area. If you are unable to locate the stinger after your dog is stung by a bee, you should still follow this step. Applying this paste after your dog is stung by a bee will help draw out the stinger and any toxins that have been injected into your dog’s skin.

Next, you will need to relieve the swelling that results after your dog is stung by a bee. In order to do this, apply an ice pack to the area. Alternate between holding it to the sting area and removing it from your pet in order to prevent discomfort from the cold.
Finally, stay with your dog to monitor its health and to provide it with comfort until the pain seems to subside. For the most part, it is not a serious concern when a dog is stung by a bee. If the dog is stung by several bees or if the sting is on the dogs mouth, nose, or head, your dog may experience some breathing difficulties. If this occurs or if the swelling around the area is very large, you should see your veterinarian immediately.
