    DefaultBee stung

    Sophie got stung in the nose by what looked like a wasp. I gave her a benadryl. She doesn't seem too worse for wear. She keeps putting her paws over her nose. She is sleepy now, benadryl induced I am sure. Poor girl! She didn't know that some bugs don't like it when she tries to eat them!

    Did you look CLOSELY for a stinger? It will continue hurting longer if the stinger isn't removed. If need be, have someone help by holding Sophie while you look with glasses on (or with a magnifying glass) for the stinger or a "black dot". Avoid using tweezers if you can. Grasp the stinger with your fingers and remove it with a quick jerk. Some people recommend using a plastic credit card and scraping the stinger out, especially if it's broken off. Once removed, the area should be cleaned with alcohol or soap and water. I try to put Benadryl anti-itch gel on the spot, especially since the dawg can't lick it off in that area.

    Poor Sophie. Jim gave great advice. Hope she feels better soon.

    We didn't see a stinger. She kept folding her paws over her nose, so if there was one, she might have rubbed it off. It was one of those waspy bees that my mom used to call a mud dobber. You know, they build those little nests out of mud... She does seem fine now, its been several hours. She is always catching moths or flies or bugs that crawl...she was so shocked when this one bit back!

    Poor Sophie! I always yell at Diesel if I see him chomping the air at a bee. Hopefully the stinger is out, but if she is still showing signs of pain (paws on the nose) I would investigate further like Jim said with a magnifying glass for a stinger.
