How To Deal With Hilariously Painful Pet Bee Stings
Have you ever been stung by a bee? Oh boy do they hurt! Bee stings generally cause pain and swelling to various degrees depending on how individual each person or animal's body reacts. Our crazy pets are well known for getting into all kinds of mischief! These shenanigan searcher outers often find themselves in some less than ideal situations that their owners must rescue them from. While the majority of pets are not allergic to bee stings therefore they are not fatal, it is super important to be on alert and try to avoid the situation all together.
Step one: Soothe the bite site. Make a thick paste of baking soda and water and apply it to the sting site. If your cat has multiple stings or bites, a soothing oatmeal bath is the way to go.
Step two: Minimize swelling. Apply an ice pack to the affected area for 10 minutes to reduce swelling. A bag of frozen peas serves as a handy ice pack for individual bites. A cooled towel works better for larger areas.
Be safe out there kiddos. Protect your pets.
OUCH. Somebody get some baking soda and water on this sting asap! Poor lil kitty cat, at least he looks comfortable! Don't worry buddy, help is on the way and the baking soda water concoction is in the works.
This shmooshy lil face just makes us want to grab this pupper and give him a big wet kiss! After we tend to his bee stings and make sure he's comfortable, of course. But immediately after that, it's kiss time.
