    Default A reminder about bee stings.. Fresno State mascot :(

    Victor E. II, bulldog mascot for Fresno State, dies from bee sting
    Local News | FresnoBee.com

    A sad story... I had the chance to see Victor last year and he truly was loved by the Fresno State fans.

    Keep those bully's safe!

    Ugh. This breaks my heart, especially reading the part where they tended to him immediately & even did CPR, bless that family. Tyson was just stung by a wasp 2 weeks ago, I went into immediate panic mode, as he held his little paw up in dis-pare. I had his paw in a baking soda/water mix immediately, and keep checking for any inflammation, redness, swelling. I had the benadryl ready to administer in case I saw it. Time is so precious, so please love on your babies every single day.... rest in peace sweet Victor.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    So sad.Rest in peace, sweet boy. Martha got a sting. It took prednisone and two benedryl. She had hives all over, and her face swelled like a balloon. I was very lucky I had the pred. on hand,at the time.

    I can't open the page but I think it's my connection that's bad right now... maybe just as well, I will just cry What is the best thing to do if it happens? Our town vet is about 5 minutes away but she's most often away out on farms and stuff...

    A paste of baking soda & water to help the sting is best immediately, that will keep them calm & soothe the pain. If you start to see a reaction, administer benadryl right away I would do two... then straight to urgent care. Or prednisone, but that is prescribed so many may not have it.

    Each one is different, Tyson's been stung (wasp) and got into fire ants, he was fine, never had a reaction. It just really bothered him, and made his paws twitch. Until the baking soda paste was applied.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Have benedryl on hand to counteract the reaction. It will help with swelling and mild reaction symptoms, If they have an anaphylactic reaction, only a vet can help. Do you have that or anything like it there?

    Omg that's so sad Barkley got stung on his lip last year...there was a bee crawling on the ground and of course he tried to eat it! He shook his head and then started licking his lips a lot but then was just fine. I wouldn't have even known it happened if I hadn't seen it. I found the stinger on his lip and got it out so at least I did see it happen so I was able to get it out!

    I'm not sure... I will have to ask the vet. We have something here called Allergex but I think that's more for allergies caused from food or grass and so on...? but I'm not sure. When I Google Benadryl it says I can order online, but with this post office Will ask at the pharmacy and see if they have

    looks like it is similar to Benedryl... just do the same 1 mg per pound of doggie

    It happened to Banks twice, but we never knew what caused the reaction... both were horrendous and happened at like 2 AM so we think it was something outside that took a while to impact her -- eyes shut and her whole face was red, but we were very lucky it was not worse
