First Aid : Insect Bites and Stings

12. Insect Bites and Stings:

If your pet has been stung by a bee or wasp, check to see if the stinger is still embedded (only bees leave the stinger behind). If it is, use a credit card or dull knife to scrape it off.

Don’t use tweezers to pull it out may inject more toxin.

Soothe the area with a cold compress and apply a paste of bicarbonate of soda or an analgesic ointment. You may want to give him benedryl to combat allergic reactions but be sure to contact your vet for correct dosage.

If you notice symptoms of shock or serious allergic reaction, call your vet.
