    Other day I was working my wife texted me just a soon as I was finishing up my shift on my way home . Apparently my wife let dog outside my dog roams around yards she knows the boundaries she doesn’t leave the yard she cane back inside looking like Bullwinkle ! She must of caught a bee in mouth . My wife put her in dog cage until I got home she came down in garage to my work area and collapsed on floor under my desk it started to look serious she was breathing hard, throwing up every 5 minuets, I knew it was bad... I hurried up and gave her some Benadryl she kicked out of it 3 hours laters swelling was going down today she seems fine back to herself ... never thought an bee sting would be that bad

    Glad you were able to get on top of it. I had a lab one time that ate or was stung by something. His head was as big as a dang basketball.

    I heard few members on here dogs gotten bitten by venomous snakes , they did mention giving a dog Benadryl for snake bites .... Also sadly a few member’s dogs also died from snake bite depend on which kind of snake bitten the dog ...

    I had give Benadryl to my dog other day for first time I never had to use it ... I never though bees or wasp or what ever she took a hit from in mouth would be this bad , we all were chuckling saying how cute she looked just like Bullwinkle the moose We all felt guilty in house afterwards for teasing her after we seen how bad it was to the dog ... I guess some dogs do have mild allergies to bee or wasp stings... I’ll be keeping Benadryl handy from now on , that’s were I learned this from good members on here

    I think your right Jabshier, the way the Benadryl kicked in, she has allergies to a certain type of bee for sure... you just reminded me I need to get something for snake bites... I lost a female once to a snake bite, never found snake, I would say a timber rattler as fast as she went. We have a few copper heads around this area.

    This is a good example why you should have a DOG FIRST AID kit for situations like this. I am glad your dog Jabshier1 had recovered successfully.

    My dog seems to almost enjoy a honey bee fight, they get to hanging on the water pans this time of year. I saw a cicada killer the other day, It might of been one of those. As quick as they kill a cicada Ide bet there sting would be bad.
