Customer Question

Saturday, 4 pm, thought my Yorkie-schnauzer ate a bee. He immediately started pawing at his mouth, opening and closing his mouth, continuously, trying to burrow his muzzle on the ground,etc. I was finally able to get a small piece of Benedryl in him. Let him lick ice and seemed to help. He slept last night but each time he awoke he was continuously opening &a closing his mouth. Still doing it this morning. He walked outside with me but did not urinate. No problem breathing, or swallowing. He weighs 20#. Somewhat lethargic, sleeping at present.

Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about this situation with this little one. Did you see him eat the bee? Is he eating and drinking today ok? Does he seem distressed at this time?
