    Defaulteating bees...

    Last night Allie came very close to eating a hornet. What do you do when your dog actually catches and eats a bee, I assume they can get stung when eating it. Just trying to prepare for the inevitable situation ahead

    Zoe is allergic to bees.

    Benadryl (2) and she also has an epipen just in case. I had to take her to the vet twice already.

    Just be sure it is the Benadryl allergy and NOT Benadryl D

    Dogs also metabolize differently that we do and should be given 1mg per pound. Therefore, I end up giving Tiller 3 Benedryl.

    Ginger eats bees all the time...... I call her my "bee slayer"...... she has this wierd way of smacking her jaws together.....you can hear it...... she must mash the bee sort of.... she makes them mad, usually it is a wasp....... but she wins out in the end, she never yelps like she was stung, and she will always eat them after she kills them........

    I had a dog as a kid who adored bees. If you swatted them first, she wouldn't eat them. She had to catch them herself. I'm sure she was stung once or twice and never had a problem.
