    My dog is in week two of trying to recover from some kind of bug bite on her butt cheek. It started as a big bump. Vet investigated and said there was a mass about the size of two golf balls. A day later it ruptured and left a big hole in her! I mean like 1" diameter and 1.5" deep. It was super ugly. He wouldn't stitch it up because it needed to drain. She's on two antibiotics and has a heart murmer now. But seems to be getting better. Fingers crossed. We figure it must have been a spider, brown recluse or something.

    That sounds like a spider bite.

    Our little Bindi stepped on a bee one night during our walk. We weren’t sure until we went to the emergency Vet. She was a howler and a whiner, so upset it took three people to hold her down to find and remove the sting, quite a feat for a ten pound Chihuahua/Mini Pinscher. Sassy little Tasmanian Devil our little Princess can be.

    Sorry to hear the news. At least she’ll sleep well.

    Cute Tikka will be back and chasing flying raisins in no time;)
    My Mastiff found a bee's nest in the ground a few years ago, and got stung. He paced the house for a couple of hours, and I had no idea why? No lumps or bumps?
    Well the next day I was weed eating the back yard, only to find why he was pacing in pain! These bee's came out of nowhere and stung me on the finger, neck and elbow, I've been stung my plenty of bee's, but those bee's packed a punch! I too started pacing, the pain was like no other sting I had ever had!!!
    Once I shook off the bad pain, REVENGE was on my mind!! I started up the mower, tied the arm so it would stay running, parked it right over the bee's nest and left it there for a half hour or so,,,,, Die Bee's!!!:twisted:

    It can be stressful but your dog will be fine! Godspeed and a prompt recovery!

    Woof!

    (don't forget the mandatory treat after such a painful experience! LOL)

    The hives hadn't gone away this afternoon, so we took her to the doggie doc. A shot of steroid later she was released. Now she's sleeping in front of the TV stand, happy to be home. Her face is back to normal as of this morning... Just those pesky hives. She's back to acting like her self though, so that's good.:D

    Once again, thanks for all the comments folks. Tikka is back to normal. Here she is visiting me in my home office trying to convince me she's done with bees.... A likely story.

    Glad Tikka's okay. Man, my dog's been trying to eat bees in the backyard all summer. She's going to catch up to one sooner or later.

    That's good news, hope she continues to mend. It will be that much sweeter when / if you have to get out the insecticide and go to work....kill them bastids!!

    That's great news. Perhaps the experience will stop Tikka snapping at 'sky raisons'... I hope so. Tufnell thinks she's a good lookin' hound! :)
