Allergic Reactions to Insect Stings and
We have had a few dog owners that have taken their dogs to the vet
for allergic reactions to stings/bites. Benadryl can be used with dogs that have
been biten/stung and display swelling around the bite/sting area.
should always follow up with a call or visit to your vet. Check with your vet
before giving Benadryl for your dogs particular health condition.
may required shots at the vets office to bring swelling down, so please check
with your vet and don't delay. Sensativity to bites/stings can vary with each
dog and the bite or sting.</div>
