bee sting
malibu5 posted:
My boxer was stung two days ago by a yellow jacket. She seemed fine several hours after the sting, but woke up the next day very stiff and lathargic. We are on day two and she does not seem to be getting better. She does not have any hives that I notice anyway. She is not vomiting and does not seem to have a fever. She eats and drinks very little. I did give her a benidril yesterday but did not see in improvement in her symptoms. I have been reading up on reactions dogs have to stings, and she does not seem to have any of those symptoms....I am not sure if I should be concerned and take her to the vet or if I should relax...
