Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome! Thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will be assisting you today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- How much does he weigh?
2- Any pre existing medical conditions?
3- Any swelling?
Please give me a few minutes to type your answer. Thank you.
Friend, if you see any swelling or if you know exactly where he got stung apply cold compresses for 5 minutes 3-4 times a day. In addition, start him on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg every 12 hours for the next few days. For pain and inflammation you can also give him Buffered Aspirin 325mg 1/4 tablet every 12 hours. If at any point you notice difficulty breathing, pale gums, etc. have him checked by ER veterinarian.
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.
