How to Deal With a Bee Sting

Have you ever wondered what you should you do if your furry friend is stung by a bee or a wasp?

In most cases, there will be some swelling and tenderness at the sting site. It’s best to try to remove the tiny stinger as quickly as possible (although they can be hard to see). Apply a cold compress (damp towel) to reduce swelling.

When do I need to seek veterinary advice?

Pets that are licking the sting area constantly, are in pain (limping is common if stung on the paw), or are a bit lethargic should be seen by us as soon as possible. We may need to give your pet an antihistamine and/or pain relief injection.
