Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I would love to assist you.

Can you tell me if there is any swelling where the bees stung her?

Did you give anything after the stings?

Are the stingers removed from the areas?

Thank-you! I would give some Benedryl at 1-2 Mg per pound of body weight. This will help if this is a reaction to the the Bee Sting that will help. WE do see different reactions to bee stings and this may be what you have seen this evening. Please try that and see if this helps resolve the problem. It will make the dog sleepy, but should help.

How is your dog doing today? Is she back to normal? Did the Benedryl seem to help?
