Poor Little Praline!

Last night my little girl got stung or bitten by something, most likely a bee or a wasp and her little snout got pretty puffy and lumpy. She's such a little Tomboy that it's startling how cuddly and needy she can be if she feels a little poorly. She couldn't wait to get into bed and snuggle. I laid awake for a while listening to her breathing, my hand on her little ribcage. She did not seem to be in terrible discomfort, and the puffiness went away. I'm so glad there wasn't an emergency trip to the vet last night. She forgets that intrepid souls sometimes get ouchies. Bless her little heart.

Some child's Benadryl usually helps. We keep a bottle around for such occasions. If you're unsure of the dosage, you can call your vet and they'll give you the amount.

Prauline, let your mommy know that there are a couple of things she needs to always have on hand - a doggie antihistamine - like Benedryl, Prednisone, puppy size and amoxycilline in the dry form, ready to be used. Have her talk to the vet on how to use these...you get better now, ya hear.

Awww, poor Praline-Puppy! Glad to hear she didn't have a reaction to it, and that she's better today. Give her some extra cuddles from me!

Benedryl (pill form only!) one 25mg tablet per 25lbs of dog, up to 4times a day but less is better. More than a couple days should require a vet visit to make sure theres not a major problem.

My larger dog gets itchy with spring allergies and my smaller dog loves stinging insects.....
