When your pup’s paws, nose or any other part of her body comes into contact with a bee that stings, it’s as painful to her as it would be to you. Sodium Hydrogen Carbonate (Sodium Bicarbonate) can help take the sting away by creating a paste with a little water.
FOR SIGNS OF A DOG BEE STING, SEE BELOW:
- Swelling of the face or muzzle
- Thickening ear flaps
MORE SERIOUS REACTIONS AFTER A DOG BEE STING MAY ALSO OCCUR. THESE REQUIRE IMMEDIATE MEDICAL ASSISTANCE:

If you see that your dog has been stung by a bee, gently remove the stinger. This will stop additional venom from entering your dog’s system. Then, wash the area down with mild soap and water. PLEASE NOTE: SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE FOR REMOVING THE BEE STING TO AVOID HURTING YOUR DOG.
