Dogs Who Had to Learn the Hard Way Not to Eat Bees

You warned them, but did they listen??

 

It happens to almost all dogs at least one in their lifetimes – the buzzy, zippy critters prove to be far too much of a temptation, and they clamp their jaws down around them.  But they’re in for a rude surprise – these treats hurt!  Hopefully these poor pups have learned their lessons…

  1. My Bella, a German shepherd/collie mix, has a fascination with bees. It must be the buzzing sound it makes, but she keeps chasing them any time she sees one! I’m glad she hasn’t caught one!

  2. I’ve had dogs who’ve *tried* to eat bees, wasps, hornets, flies, etc. Never did one actually manage to get close enough to pose a threat to them that they felt compelled to sting. Poor babies:(…

  3. My dog’s face split open from the swelling and she almost lost her life! She spent two weeks in the intensive care of our dog trauma center. Now we always carry Benadryl! It is very serious and not funny.

  4. Awww poor baby. Definitely allergic. My dogs have been stung, stepped on bees, and ate them. Never had a reaction, thankfully. Benadryl is always good to have on hand if you know the dosage for your dog’s weight.

  5. Poor baby! However, I did Lol and thought…this lil baby is the Kylie Jenner of the dog world….sorry puppy….I didn’t mean to laugh at you

  6. Many years ago we had a collie – Sheppard mix…she squatted to pee, got stung on the wazoo and from that day on she lifted her leg to pee

  7. I had a dog – beautiful border collie/lab mix. She hated bees. Wasps would try to build nest in her dog house. She would kill them with quick speed. She would get stung a couple of times, but that only made her more determined. She didn’t eat them, she would just kill them, and spit them out.

  8. I had one dog who lived to chase and eat bees…her snout looked like that but she was a trooper and chased those bees for 18 yrs!

  9. That happened to my Tabitha, a corgi, when she was about 6 months old. Her muzzle swelled up and she was having trouble breathing and her eyes were just little slits. Emergency trip to the vet and a shot of benadryl and then more benadryl given orally until the swelling went down. She is 6 years old now and hasn’t messed with a bee since. lol

  10. Happened to my big boy once. I walked passed him laying on the floor and saw his snout looked red…and then his head continued to swell up until his eyes were nearly shut. I hauled ass to the store and all but force fed him some Benadryl lol disappeared completely by the end of the night. Scared me half to death though lol

    1. How did you know how much benadryl to give him. I have a 50 lb. mix who loves to chase them. I need to get some benadryl in case.

      1. “The usual dosage for treating dogs is 1 mg/lb every 8 hours (three times daily) but can be doubled to 2mg/lb if needed.”

        I also use Benadryl (or Costco’s Kirkland brand equivalent) for my dogs’ inhalant allergies.

        Just be very careful not to give your dog anything like psuedofed, etc. – that can kill a dog. Whenever in doubt about giving something to your dog, either call your vet or look online for the correct dosage or if a product is safe for your dog (or cat – cats BTW can’t be given Benadryl).

  11. My very small foxy had an allergy to something in the yard. After several very expensive after-hours vet visits ( she always managed to have the allergy after 5pm on a weekend) we started to make sure we had antihistamines on hand all times.
    The vet nurse at Newcastle After Hours Vets gave us this info on over the counter allergy drugs to help her.

  12. My dog stepped on a bee a couple if years back on Boxing Day and had a bad reaction .had to get her to the vets quickly and they gave her two injections
