My 11 month old golden retriever ate a bee...

Resolved • Response time 3 minutes

My 11 month old golden retriever ate a bee about an hour ago. He seems ok - no swelling or crying but every so often he makes a snorting noise like he’s trying to clear his nose. Should I give him anything?

Customer: Rooney
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Rooney?

Sorry to hear that Rooney has this problem, however, I have worked out an answer for you below ...

1. It sounds as if your dog got away with it. So all you need to do is keep an eye on Rooney. But be on your guard for facial swelling of any sort and any breathing problems.

But in any case, I should be available online for you for the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if Rooney's condition changes in any way or indeed if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott

Glad to talk this over with you further ...

1. Sure, Benadryl can be routinely used in the dog at dose rates of up to 2 mg per pound of the dog's body weight given orally twice a day.

2. Please follow this link for an accurate article which covers how this drug is used in dogs: LINK

3. Hopefully, this will not be necessary, but please let me know how things go.
