    Default Do I need to take my dog to the vet?

    Looks like she stood on a bee... Poor little thing. Any experiences with this?

    I heard her yelp, then saw she was limping and licking her back paw. She was standing at the lemon tree which is flowering and surrounded by bees. She actually stopped limping already. I had a look but can't see a sting stuck in there... Mmm

    I wouldn't bother. But if you're concerned, most vets will give you advice over the phone and let you know if you should bring her in.

    It seems silly I know. It was quite a severe Yelp, scared me. She actually seems completely fine but I'll keep an eye on it.

    Thanks

    I'm a vet. Keep an eye on her for swelling and maybe call your normal vet but I would hit panic stations yet.

    Yep, as amyd said, watch for swelling. Some dogs are allergic to bees, some aren't. One of my dogs is deathly allergic to bees and every part of her will swell up within about 10 minutes, to the point she can't breathe. She's a "rush to the vet" case. My other dog - I've seen him eat bees, step on them and even sit on one. Doesn't bother him. I've always just tried to find the sting and pull it out with tweezers, but after that he just goes about his day!

    That's right! You are a vet! I remember your kind words when I had posted about my other dog biting a dog at the park.

    I took a photo of her foot to compare.

    Ps. You did mean you wouldn't hit panic stations yet right? 😕

    She's absolutely fine. No limping or swelling. She's pretty stoic so I'm always checking her.

    Thank you again!
