Bees, Bugs and Your Dog

Saturday, May 2, 2020
posted by Jim Murphy

Dogs are constantly sniffing the ground. ¬†Sometimes they’ll stir up some angry bees. It’s not unusual for your dog to get stung on his face. Many dogs will also swat or dig at an irritating insect, so bug bites and stings occur on the paws as well. You’ll know if your pet was stung because the affected area will swell. Most stings and bites are not serious but if your dog’s reaction is particularly severe or he develops breathing difficulty, call you veterinarian immediately. Your pet may be having an allergic reaction. ¬†For mild allergic reactions, your vet will likely prescribe pet medication such as an antihistamine or topical creme. In severe cases, a shot of epinephrine and emergency fluids may be needed.

Remember, your pets count!
