    Hi Christine
    We all panic when something goes wrong with one of our babies just so good that Spangle is better .Last year a big bumbly got got up in Daisy's
    draws but I managed to extracate him with now harm to either and DD does have a heavy thick coat so I felt more sorry for the bee but now when Daisy
    spots one she looks then backs off thankfully.

    Hi Spangly. I'm glad Spangle is feeling better this evening, let's hope that's the end of the drama for her.

    Glad to hear she is on the mend. Perhaps there's something you could give her in the future if you suspect she's been stung? Benadryl or similar? Might be good to ask the vet. That way she might avoid a ad reaction.

    Please be careful with Benadryl:

    In the United States and Canada, Benadryl products contain the first-generation antihistamine diphenhydramine. Diphenhydramine is used as an allergy treatment in various forms around the world. It is an H1 receptor antagonist. Antagonism is achieved through blocking the effect of histamine more than blocking its production or release. Diphenhydramine inhibits most responses of smooth muscle to histamine and acts as a vasoconstrictor by inhibiting the vasodilator effects of histamine. The antagonism may also produce anticholinergic effects, antiemetic effects, and significant sedative side effects.

    In the United Kingdom, Benadryl products contain either the second-generation non-sedating antihistamine acrivastine (marketed as Benadryl Allergy Relief, with a suggested efficacy duration of eight hours) or the non-sedating antihistamine cetirizine (marketed as Benadryl One a Day Relief). Cetirizine is indicated for the relief of symptoms associated with allergy and hives. It is an orally active and selective H1 receptor antagonist.

    I can't find anything to indicate if acrivastine and cetirizine are safe for dogs



    In the UK you can obtain diphenhydramine only as Nytol [sleep aid] from a pharmacy, 50mg per tablet.

    Piriton contains Chlorpheniramine maleate and is safe for dogs - would need to check dose with a vet though.

    Just reading this now. God you must have had such a fright. I am so glad things have settled down now and Spangles feels better.

    Thank you for asking about how Spangle is doing. She is quite well at the moment. I don't think it was an insect sting. I just think it was her SM symptoms being much worse than usual.
    That's one of the main problems though as many people have said before, you just don't know whether it is SM or something different! It is so hard to know what to do sometimes. I feel a bit like I rush to the vet too quickly sometimes, but I'd rather do that than risk Spangle having to go through more pain.
