    ok, it’s been a couple of days since we’ve had a concern  ::)

    we got stung by wasps today, just now actually, I got stung twice and Sadie got one right over her eye, basically the eyebrow…it’s swollen, looks like she went 10 rounds with Mike Tyson, swelling is localised around the sting

    wipe it with vinegar?  If swelling spreads off to vet asap?

    don’t have any antihistamine but I wiped it with vinegar….swelling seems to be going down already….vet opens in 10 minutes if necessary

    Naughty Nick NO antihistamine in the house shame on you, as others have said vinegar or lemon juice will be fine, she will live just rush to the vet if she ever gets stung in the mouth other than that the V or L and a couple of antihistamine will cure all

    Yes, I know Val….I don’t take any medecines at all, nothing for colds,aches and pains or anything so my medecine cabinet is basically empty…although it is growing and everything in there is for sadie  ::)

    Poor Sadie,

    Jess got herself stung by a wasp last summer. Gave her antihistamine and rushed her to the vets as she immediately went downhill, the sting was found in her tongue.

    Hope she back to normal soon  :-*

    Keep the homoepathic remedies of Apis Mel for bee stings and Vespa for wasp stings.

    thats interesting SP  :-\ …i used to but the toxins that falkor reacts to so badly (we have to carry a pen for toxic shock) also include the ingredients in the apis and when we tested it on a non sting day he reacted..mildly true but still reacted  :-\
