Oh man, so lucky she didn't get stung on her face, your poor girls!

I had the benadryl capsules, the liquid sounds like a good idea to have on hand.

She seemed to have recovered 100%, which is a break. I'm giving some quercitin for several days, just to try to dampen any ongoing response, paranoid about indy's experience with a sting!

Yep thats about what Sasha's looked like after about half the swelling was gone.

I was concerned about how much swelling there was, thinking she had an abnormal reaction or possibly a little allergic. The vet said we did the right thing and theres nothing more he would have done. He did say that if she starts trembling, gums turn white, or starts vomiting, then theres need for worry. So apparently some must react worse than others I guess.

This is good to know!

Jazz was trembling, but her foot hurt a lot, which I could tell was causing her to tremble. I was looking for a more systemic reaction, but it's so hard to tell. The white gums - also good to know! The vomiting would definitely scare me.

So, jazz was kinda trapped in the back seat of the car with a wasp the other, and I didn't realize it.

I don't know if it stung her, I've been worried that she now has an allergy, but I saw no indication of any reaction on her body. I have liquid benadrl capsules stashed in a variety of places, just in case.

However, she is now afraid of flies when they buzz around frown didn't realize how annoying that might be. She is now hiding in the other room since there is a fly in here crazy

Oh no Lisa, not another thing she is afraid of. What if you ignore it (her reaction to flies) and pretend like everything is normal? Sometimes giving attention to fears will aggravate fear. Is she licking specific areas on her body? If you don't see her reacting she probably wasn't stung. What did you do when you saw the Wasp? Did you remain calm or were you anxious? If you were anxious, maybe that is what she picked up from you. ....Just thinking out loud.

LOL, I know, yet another fear! But at least this one is a very reasonable fear.

No, it wasn't me, at least this time. After the wasp in the car, she didn't want to go in the back seat for awhile, I did ignore that one. I do teach her in the yard, that those buzzing bees she tries to eat are dangerous, so she must have been freaking a bit when it was in the back with her.

With the fly, I just told her it was a fly, it's okay, and, you're right, part of the key is to not react, and just let it go.

She's also a bit afraid of the dark.....

Not much happened when Elsa got stung...you could tell she was like "ah, what the bleep is going on" and was shaking...but not too much swelling and was over it. I Since it was stinging on her neck area I don't think it got a full sting in really since she has so much hair in that area.

Maggie, our Dal, was extremely allergic to bug bites/stings. A spider bite/bee/wasp sting would actually give her a seizure, lasting about 10 min, then she'd be wobbly/out of it for an hour or so. I think they have different reactions just like people.

Hope she overcomes her flying bug fear!
