Emmie Bee Sting

I just took Emmie for her first walk of the day and she started walking funny. I examined her back left paw and found a bee stuck in the fur. I removed the bee but now she won't walk on that foot. I carried her home and washed the paw but all she wants to do is lick it. Also seems like her heart is beating a little fast. It's too early to talk to the vet to find out if I should give her a painkiller and/or Benadryl. Anyone else ever go through this with their dog(s)?

Oh poor Emmie. Hoping she doesn't suffer any complications. Unfortunately I can't give any advice as I've only had this happen with a large dog.

Ouchie!!! If Emmie's heart rate doesn't slow down I would go to the vet. Maybe the HR is fast because of the pain? 😟 Just concerned if she might have an allergy. Hope Emmie is feeling better soon!

Poor baby. Keep a good eye on her for allergies, maybe call the vet to see if there are any over the counter remedies to make her more comfortable.

Emmie is doing much better! She was miserable for a few hours but now seems fine except for a slight limp, which I expect will improve as the day goes on. Her heart rate is normal too. I called the vet right when they opened and they were supposed to call me back with the Benadryl dosage for an 8 lb dog but then she seemed okay.

To the best of my knowledge this is the first time she's been stung. Good news is she didn't have an allergic/anaphylactic reaction.
