Please be careful with bee stings!
Sebastian was stung by a bee about a month ago... We were hanging by my sons pool, there was a bee in the grass and he stepped on it. I pulled the stinger out and within minutes he was very lethargic and throwing up. I rushed him to the ER. He was in shock. By the time I got to the hospital I thought he was dead. Completely limp, pooped everywhere in my car and hardly breathing. It was that quick. He's only 5 pounds. Seriously the most scared I've ever been in my life. I'm so paranoid now that he stays in his crate during the day if I need to leave the house. BE CAREFUL outside and watch for signs of shock! He's doing much better now!

ALWAYS have Benadryl on hand and know ahead of time what dose you should give your dogs in case of a sting, bite, allergic reaction etcetera. Give it before going to the vet, as it could mean the difference btwn life or death.
SO glad your kiddo is okay .

Thank you for sharing your story. I always have baby liquid benedry on hand in case of an emergency. The children's pills might also work, but if a pup isn't responding, the liquid can be syringed into his mouth. I'm so glad your baby is okay now. How scary!

Wow that is very scary, so glad you rushed him to the Vet right away!
I have been there 3 times with Peanut- He was stung the same way, by stepping on them in the grass. I started to noticed bees/ wasps were always diving in my grass or hovering on top- DH looked around for a pesticide to treat the grass. We found a pet friendly product at Home Depot. We have been using it since the last time he was stung, since we have been using it- never do I see bees/wasps in my grass, or even around my grass!! I would highly recommend this product if you see them in your grass!
