    HK multiple bee stings - How much Benadryl?

    I think she got into a ground nest, and got stung multiple times in her left rear leg. I remeber that Benadryl is effective, but how much? Is there anything esle that will give her some relief?

    When Ozzy got stung the vet had me give one mg per lb of his weight. I hope she is ok!

    Same here. My vet did say you can give 2 mg per lb of weight for initial dose, but, she suggested I go for 1mg per pound and see if it helped/improved. Poor Doggy! Sure was scary for us, my dog rolled on the ground howling.

    Just make sure it is plain benadryl, not the sinus stuff. Plain old diphenhydrmine. There isn't much else you can do, if she starts having breathing problems/allegic reaction definitely call the vet!

    Double Thanks to both of you. I guess HK gets to sleep in bed tonight so I can monitor breathing.

    Kate got into a nest of bees & was bit multiple times on her face. Her face swelled up like a balloon. Took her to the vet & she got a shot. But our vet said if it happens again, I could give Benadryl, 1mg. per pound. Just monitor her breathing. Hope HK feels better. It is scary.
