Help, My Dog Stepped on a Bee: Allergic Reaction Relief for Dogs

Finding the right allergic reaction relief for dogs can be difficult. Especially when it comes to the emergency situations those incidences most often happen within; such as your dog stepping on a bee.

If your dog steps on a bee, the first thing you should do is assess the situation to see if the dog has been stung. Signs that a dog has been stung include:

  • Swelling
  • Redness and pain at the site of the sting
  • Signs of distress such as whining or biting at the affected area

If your dog has these symptoms of being noticeably stung, you should remove the stinger if it is visible.

It’s also a good idea to give your dog an antihistamine to help reduce swelling and alleviate pain. Diphenhydramine (Benadryl) is a common over-the-counter antihistamine that can be given to dogs. However, when possible, you should make a call to consult with a vet before giving your dog any new medication. This will better ensure that the dosage is appropriate and that the drug is, in fact, safe for your dog to take.

CBD: Allergic Reaction Relief for Dogs

In addition to antihistamines, there are other ways to soothe your dog after a bee sting, such as applying a cold pack to the area of the sting or by giving your dog a soothing bath with cool water.

However, if your dog has an anaphylactic reaction, which can include severe shortness of breath, severe hives, and swelling of the face, tongue or throat – call for emergency care immediately. This reaction is rare but can be fatal if left untreated.

Have you wondered why your dog cannot stop itching? There can be so many reasons behind, however, the most common is allergy.

Main symptoms. Itching and sneezing. Your dog might start to bite himself or rub his body against the furniture.

What causes it? Often the answer is food, drugs, dust, mold, pollen or any sort of cleaning products.

How to treat it? Mild allergies can be treated by avoiding all possible allergens. Try to switch to more natural cleaning supplies, or clean more often in the house. If the reason is food, try to substitute one product for another to see if there is any difference in the allergic reaction.
