Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.

The poor dear!

Now if Taz could be pregnant this makes treating this sting tricky. Often vets will use steroids to nip these types of allergic reactions in the bud, but that isn't safe for pregnancy. As well, there is very little data on the safety of antihistamines with pregnancy in dogs. So, the ideal approach would be cool compress the paw and apply a paste of baking soda and water to the sting site. Though if she is very sore or swollen with this, then you can ring her vet about using OTC Chlorphenamine (4mg every 12 hours) or Loritadine (5mg once daily) as these tend to be considered safer antihistamines for pregnant dogs and could be used if she is suffering with this.

Kind regards,

Dr. B.
