Bee Sting..no, that is not his name, that is what he got!


My big guy Cheetah got stung by a bee yesterday morning. That pretty left eye was swollen shut and greatly enlarged and it happened quick. He was laying directly in front of me, I was watching the View & I noticed him rubbing his eye with his paw, when I looked closer I could not believe how swollen his eye and jaw had become. (no pic, as I just wanted this allergic reaction to stop.) He weights around 95lbs. I gave him 3 Benedryl, followed by 3 more in 3 hrs. The swelling did start to subscide by evening and he is back to almost normal 30hrs later. I am still giving Benedryl, just not as much...Poor boy, he ran so well at practice Thur.
Bees, fleas, ticks, mosquitos, ah....Spring..
Check out Doggedogdom blog, Rose has a good post on fleas and tick protection. she covers the topic well.....

My Dog Photo Display - Madison


She is a rescue Ridgeback and needs a home.
The fact is, an animal's behavior is a result of the complex interaction between its genes and its environment. It can rarely be attributed to a single event, and even if it can be, change is still possible.
