Can you give a dog Zyrtec for a bee sting?
Dogs can take Zyrtec in small doses, but it will not be quite as helpful for a bee sting. Zyrtec is an antihistamine, which will help with congestion more successfully. A better choice to treat a bee sting is Benadryl.
The bee might sting, but it will only sting if provoked.
Take your dog to the vet. They give us undying love and ask nothing in return. Go to the Vet.
What if your dog is foaming at the mouth and he was on his leash out side could this be from a bee sting?
That dog has rabies
When it gets stung, it turns into gimar
Not sure if asking how big a sting can get or how long it can last. A sting is just like on a human as on a dog. The sting can last up to a week before it goes away. The swelling can last up to 4 to 5 days depending where the sting is on the dog.
Yes, a childrens Benedryl is safe to give. But the dog should be taken to a veterinarian if there is swelling, the dog is lethargic, painful, not wanting to eat or drink, or if the stinger is still embedded.
Same reaction as humans but less likely to occur if hair is thick.
about 3 seconds the dog will probly flich and wimper or even try to scratch where that dog had got stung or bark and rub on the floor in that spot
Check that the sting has not been left behind. If it has, remove it by scraping it out. After that, the best thing is just to leave it alone. If the dog seems particularly bothered by it or there appears to be a bad reaction seek veterinary help. Under no circumstances should you give the dog any medicines intended for humans without being told to do so by a vet.
When the dog is licking himself non-stop in a certain spot that may mean that's where the sting is. Or when the dog is moaning.
Not much. If the dog is well behaved,you can try a honey and papya mix. Apply it to the sting area and leave it be as long as you can.
If the dog goes into respiratory distress after the sting it could be one of those rare dogs that is allergic to bee venom. If that is the case, you will need to transport the animal to a vet for emergency treatment. If not, your dog just got a lesson about avoiding bees and will probably not get stung again unless you lavish so much attention on the dog after the sting that you positively… Read More
Dogs can have either Zyrtec or Robitussin DM (or CF). These medications are for two different purposes, they can't be used interchangeably. Zyrtec is an allergy medication, and Robitussin is a cough suppressant. Your vet can advise you of the proper medication and dose for your dog, based on it's weight and the condition your dog has.
can a centipede sting harm a dog
Zyrtec or cetirizine is an antihistamine that is safe to administer to dogs. A dog should be given 1mg of the antihistamine for every 2. 2 pounds of body weight.
GET HIM TO THE VET IMMEDIATELY. Zyrtec may be harmful or fatal to dogs if it is swallowed.
A dog joke and a bee joke is as written bellow: What do you get when you cross a race dog with a bumble bee? A Greyhound Buzz.
What can you do if your dog got stung by a bee and his eye is swollen shut and the swelling is spreading to the other eye making it shut?
My dog has just been stung on the eyelid whilst out walking. I came straight home and telephoned the vet. She advised me to give her a 1/4 tablet of human's Piriton (chlorphenamine) and put a cold compress on the eye. FYI my dog weighs about 5 kilo's. The vet advised if it continued to swell then she may need to be seen, however I can happily report that within 2 hours the swelling has… Read More
i had a puppy who was very young and she died from a sting by a bee which is very keep them cool and make sure they over heat. take them to the vets straight away.
When my dogs are depressed and not eating, I give them a little bit of bee honey it gives them their appetite back.
no, you should not give dogs medication meant for humans.
Your dog may have had an allergic reaction to the bee sting.Take your dog to the vet and they will be able to bring the swelling down.
In clinical trials with dogs they used 1mg of zyrtec per 2 pounds of dog. So a 20 pound dog can take 10mg although with my 18 pound shiba the vet recommended 5mg. I would err on the lower dose.
A dog that is stung, particularly on the face or in the mouth by a bee may very well have a strong reaction much like a person with swelling. I always keep children's formula of Benadryl on my dog first aid shelf. A call to the vet to ask how much to give would be in order. As a rule, it's not serious and the Benadryl will take the swelling away in short order. Discourage… Read More
Not sure but Benadryl is the best for dogs. Check with your vet on the dosage. I am not sure about Zyrtec. Benadryl has been the drug of choice for several types of vet issues.
Put some bicarbonate of soda paste on the sting site. If the dog seems to be in distress contact a vet. Don't give the dog medicines intended for humans because firstly you don't know what effect they may have on the dog, and secondly you wouldn't know what dose to give. The correct dose for a human would amost certainly be an overdose for a dog.
Stroke, injury, bee sting on his eye, snake bite, allergic reaction, rabies, old age, needs a vet visit, sounds like. Oh yeah.
you get sting
You get a buzzed dog when you cross a bee and Blues Clues.
Bees are insects that undergo complete metamorphosis. Dogs are mammals that give birth to live young. So no.
Brigitte the Dog goes by Bijou, and Bee.
Same thing you'd do if a person got stung, nothing. There isn't really anything you can do. Maybe soak the sting in cold water. The big problem is you can't tell the dog 'It's okay, you'll be fine.' because the dog doesn't understand! The dog will be in a some pain for a few days, but he'll get better. So don't worry. ps. This has happened to my dog, and lot's of dogs. He'll be… Read More
dog poo and your face
1 mg per 2 lbs of weight
Call a vet. Immediately. Many dogs are allergic to bees/wasps, so it is a good idea to carry around benedril (25mg, human benedril), and be able to give your dog one if he is stung.
The punchline to the joke is a greyhound buzz. Another possible punchline for this joke is a yeller bee which refers to the dog from the movie Yeller.
The crocodiles,alligators,cheetah,,lions,cats bites while the dog bites with rabis otherwise rabis is deadly to humans, snakes if they bit you you will be poisoned the bee sting its harmful and the mosquitos and cockroaches leaves poison if it crawls on food
Not at all. A Rose has very weak venom, as do all tarantulas. Their venom is strong enough to stun their prey, not kill them, as they prefer their food alive. Think of a tarantula's bite as being about as troubling as a bee sting.
You can not cross breed a puppy and a bee, that's not possible. There is, however, a breed of dog called a Jack-a-Bee which is a Jack Russell and Beagle mix.
IF you have a homeopathic First aid kit and book it will tell you to use Apis 30C or 200C and how often to give the remedy. if swelling a fair bit give the remedies on the way to the vets what you should do is put baking soda and mix it with water until it is a paste. that'll make any toxins left from the sting wound dissapear.then you spread it all around the… Read More
If a dog has thrown up and later in the day has been shaking not because they threw up what is to be assumed?
That could be alot of things. Without any details to go on I would think maybe the dog ate something bad. Poisen would do that too. So would an allergic reaction. Even a bee sting could make a reaction like that.
Take it to the vet imediately!!!!!!!!!!!!!
a fast bumble bee, i guess....
you get a greyhound buzz!!! lol
bee, cat, dog, fly, rat,
Yes my dog got a sting on his crotch and was licking it for days.
can i give my dog my amoxicillin
no you can not give walnuts to your dog.
IF ADVISED BY YOUR VET, you may give low dose aspirin and benadryl together, at the correct doses, to your dog. My vet had my pug on low dose aspirin and benadryl for a suspected allergic reaction to a bug bite/sting. Always best to call your vet and express your concerns.
It's best to get your dog to a vet immediately. Some dogs can be highly allergic to wasp stings. You can also phone your vet and ask them what antihystamine you could give the dog and tell them the weight of the dog. Generally the stinger should be taken out, but that's no small feat because sometimes you can't see it if the color of the dog is dark.
