    It does look a lot better from Friday! Happy to see that. Chumley did the exact same thing last summer..he was definitely stung by a bee ...in 2-3 days his paw was much better. He'll be fine!

    Well the only thing I haven't read thus far is a trick that really works wrap some banana peel on it with the flesh side to his paw, if there is a stinger in there it sucks it out... The real trick of-course is probably keeping him from wanting to eat the banana peel.

    Honestly never tried it on a dog though. I agree with everyone else about a bite or sting and that your on the right track. You may also consider a glass of wine for yourself

    Poor @TyTysmom I even love his fat feet,I want to kiss them.(I don't like human feet..)

    Lynn...we think alike! My 1st reaction was 'Oh...that looks sore, poor TyTy and
    then wanting to kiss those fat paws (tenderly, very tenderly tho). I don't wonder
    that the 'no dogs allowed' crowd thinks we're odd...we are! Lol, but I don't care

    Oh...we know this so well...when my 1st bully, Brutus, broke out in hives late one night,
    I got right on EBN asking for help, my hands were shaking, my eyes were tearing up so I
    could hardly see...just fell apart! He was still very new to me & the hives were from nothing
    I could think of and all over him, I was instantly overwhelmed with fear. It did surprise me,
    I'm almost always calm during crisis, even when my son sliced his leg open, deep & long, I
    rushed him to ER. I cried in their restroom, of course, while they were taking care of him.

    Think it's because they're like our children as babies & toddlers & can't tell us what's wrong
    or give us feedback. No matter...these bullies ARE our hearts. Glad TyTy's better...HUGS!

    Just checking in on you guys this morning… WOW he does look like he was stung by something, but great job taking care of that mom. Hopefully the swelling will go down more today...

    Hi, Everyone's got you covered with great advice as usual. You're doing a great job of caring for his paw, and I agree that it looks like a bee or wasp sting. I'm glad he's improving and feeling better, and I hope it clears up soon, but also agree if it's not better in a couple more days, I would take him to the vet to make sure there isn't a stinger stuck in his paw. I learned two new things from this post, one is the benefits of Peppermint Oil, and also that you can treat bee stings with a banana peel. I love natural remedies.
    LEARN A LESSON FROM YOUR DOG, NO MATTER WHAT LIFE BRINGS YOU, KICK SOME GRASS OVER THAT AND MOVE ON.

    Thanks to all - I'll post some updated pics tonight since in the mornings its too dark. The swelling is still there, but its moved slightly up his toe and formed like a small bump... Not sure what that's all about. He lets us massage it, soak it, etc so we are continuing with all of that. I should be getting a call back from our vet today and I'll see what she suggests. The swelling has improved since Friday - but I guess not at the pace I would have expected or liked to have seen. But most importantly since he seems to not be bothered by it much anymore, and is normal as can be, I will try to keep my worries at bay. (keyword: "try") LOL

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    If swelling continues to go down, all will be good. If not, it needs attention from a Vet. Maybe a dex shot or some antibiotics...or both. Give him a bit more time and love.

    I love on that boy probably more than HE would like, hahaha. Yes, does seem like swelling is going down. Just so slowly... ugh. His whole toe was badly swollen before like double this last pic.....Thanks
