Baxter and I were outside a few minutes ago and I think he got stung by a bee. The little guy didnt even deserve it but somehow he did. I read last summer about some of your babies being stung. What did you do to help because he seems miserable. :(

I am feeling: exanimateconcerned

Benedryl for kids, per my vet. Deez got it quite a few times last summer!

I was hoping you'd see this! I remember Deez being stung. Thank you for your help!

No problem... I had even called the vet at home, on Sunday. I was that freaked out...

Boss got one the other day. My poor little boys and those damn bees/wasps/hornets/stingy things!

I know! Baxter was minding his own business and all of a sudden he turned around real fast and was "like what the heck was that?!?!?" then i saw this little bee fly away.

yep - plain benedryl. not with any antihistamines in it, though....

awww - poor thing!

Thank you! :)

Of course, watch him if he's never been stung; Bostons have a propensity for allergic reactions. Fig is allergic and has to go in for shots and everything else... she swells up all over (including her little bronchial tubes!)

Aww your poor baby! She looked miserable too. Baxter got stung on his back right leg. Thank you for your help. I called the vet too and they said to give him 25 milligrams of benadryl.

poor winny got bit by a deerfly yesterday while I was swimming.

it was just red yesterday.. and it's an icky scab today


heh, he's all flopped on my lap, hot and tired


He doesn't seem bothered by it though, so that's good. Poor little dude.
