Tanja (45 lbs) stepped into a wasp once, and was crying, shaking, and completely upset. It must be very painful b/c a paw is such a small area and the swelling cannot spread out. Dogs differ in sensitivity to pain, too. And Tanja in general was a very sensitive dog. She needed to be in a dark room afterwards, couldn't bear light, and I held her and comforted her for I don't remember how long. And put the paw in and out of a cup of ice water.

I kinda like it when they are afraid enough of buzzing thingies in the air to leave them alone. I don't know how good their taxonomic skills can become, and how much painful experience it takes, for them to learn to distinguish between a fly and a stinging insect.

Are there EPI pens for allergic dogs? I doubt it.

Bee sting part two, I think the same paw, not sure, had to come check on what happened last time. Luckily I had some benedryl in my purse (for just this reason), need to get home and ice and Apis.

I have her little paw packed with baking soda, and it seems to be finally ettling some. Poor thing.
