4- How old is she?
6- Any pre existing medical conditions?
1- Can you take a look at her gums and see if they are pink or pale?
2- Can you take her rectal temperature?
3- Any swelling in the area of the sting?
How much does she weigh?
Please give me a few minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Friend, I am not 100% convinced this is related to the bee sting. You see, I would expect the worst symptoms to occur during the first 1-2 days, not the 3rd day. Her shaking could be a sign of a fever or another source of pain like neuromuscular or abdominal pain, etc. As a precaution you can start her on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 2.5mg every 12 hours, you will need liquid benadryl for children to get such a small amount. You can buy benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy. Do Not give over the counter pain killers, most are toxic to dogs and will interfere with certain medications your vet may need to use. Follow up with family vet in the morning.
My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
