Is there an emergency vet in you area? I'd tske him if so, If not call your vet to see if there's an off hour contact number. Besides the benedryl I don't know what else you can do.

I looked at some of the on-line vet advice sites, and they seem to say to give the antihistamine (which you've done), check that breathing is normal (sounds like it is) and to use cold packs on and off for the first day (not ice, just cool to coldish). They also say to make a paste of baking soda and just enough water to make it spreadable. They seem to say it's ok if the dog licks it off.

Hope she's feeling better soon - poor little thing. That has to HURT!

Thanks for the replys! I too went online to check what else i could do in the mist of my partial panic Shocked As she has never been stung before so i wasnt sure if she was allergic or not.And i must say to be stung on your private parts has got to hurt a LOT more than anywhere else..poor girl.I did put the baking soda paste on it but i wonder if that stung there also..She is doing good,had chills for a few minutes but is breathing and acting fine now,thank god!

It's always best to have children's (not adults) liquid benadryl around. Some might know more on the dosage but I have mine noted as 10cc to give to my babies and they range from 16-25lbs. I keep the bottle in it's pkgd box with the dosage written on the inside of the lid and an oral syringe in the box. In an ER, it's there, directions there, etc. With the liquid, you can squirt it in their mouth because with the pill, IF they are having an allergic reaction, their throats could quickly swell and they wont be able to swallow the pill plus it will take longer to absorb. I hope she is feeling better but please look into getting the liquid to keep on hands and make sure it's childrens. I never had to use mine yet thank dog! Even when the bottle expired, I got a new one.

I have been buying the children's Benadryl tablets that are grape flavored or Walmart has the generic version in cherry flavor. My dogs love them and take without any trouble

What a great idea! Thank you - Penny hates the taste of Benadryl, and it is often a battle to get it down her. Now if they made a flavored tramadol - that stuff is rank!
