Today Mensa got stung by a bee (I think). Notice her swolen face, this is after most of the swelling went down. I noticed her swolen face, and took her to the Vet, thinking it was serious. The Vet sees this all the time, not really much of a problem. She says one of her Dobies got stung like Mensa when he was about Mensa's age.

She treated her with Benadryl, and I picked up some on the way home for when this happens again. And it WILL happen again! She's just that kind of dog.

She's all better now (8 hours later), her face looks normal, but I was worried there for a while.

Poor poor Baby!!!! I had a Dobe many years ago that just loved to catch bees, hornets , wasps if it flew and stung (which happened everytime) she went after it.

Oh poor Puppy!! I was talking to a friend of mine just the other day about bee stings.. she says that if a bee stings you to put wet tobacco on the sting and it will not swell. almost makes you want to keep some in the med cabinet just in case!

Poor baby,have a word with her Chaz, the breed standard states cat like paws, not cat like habits, like chasing flying things and such likes.

I think Mensa with a bee sting looks very much like a Sharpei - Doberman cross...
The poor baby... I'm glad that she's doing better now :)
Yes, Cole has been stung before and he looked like a Sharpei. Reminded me I don't want one. :)
One benadryl and 20 minutes later the swelling was gone.
