    Well this morning, I guess while I was away from work...My neighbor saw my dog trying to catch a Bee...finally caught it and last second before he ate it, the bee stung him on his tongue :lol-sign:

    He keeps weeping...anything I can do??

    How long do these stings last?

    Thanks for any feed back

    Benadryl (sp?) works great.

    About ONE mg per pound of your Dog's weight.

    Works great.

    I know how scary these can be.

    My dog got stung 5 times a few weeks ago on the stomach when he rolled into the long grass, i took him to the vets and he gave him an anti-inflamatory injection. I put a paste made from bicarbonate of soda and water on it and it drew out the stinger and now he is fine. With it being the tongue, all i can say is piriton or benadryl like Dave says works great, and if your dog likes ice cubes, give him some of them, it will numb the pain while the drugs do there work.
