Bee and Wasps Stings

Bee and Wasps Stings

May 12, 2015 by

Scott Veterinary Clinic reminds us that some dogs

 

 

will try to catch bees and wasps but often get stung in the process.

 

Here's what to do if your dog shows signs of redness, swelling, rubbing/biting the area, and excess salivation....  

  • Bee stings are acidic so to neutralise the pain you can apply bicarbonate of soda (in a paste) to the sting.
  • Wasp stings are alkaline so vinegar can be applied to reduce the pain.

If your pet has swelling around the neck/face affecting the breathing then seek veterinary advice immediately.
