    I was walking my shih tzu dog last night and all of a sudden he took off running and then fell to the ground. He starting licking his right leg and was limping. I got him to house and took him to vet.

    The vet gave him a shot and now he is on antibiotics, he is very sleepy.

    So be careful walking your dogs.

    So sorry to hear about your little dog. Hope he feels better soon.

    Our Malamute mix was stung on and in his mouth when he was a puppy, he was chasing bees and unbeknown to us tried to eat one. His face swelled up like a balloon, it happened very late in the afternoon and it didn't show effect 'til later in the evening. I rang the emergency vet and they said to ice it and watch his breathing. His breathing was fine and by the next morning the swelling was down, thanks to a pack of frozen peas and constant monitoring. But, I do believe some dogs (like people) can become very sick with beestings.

    yes, I was scared to death, I called our vet office was closed, so I called another one that is open 24 hours and said to get dog to vet immediately as they can die from it, so I called a friend that works for a vet (luckly the vet was in his office from 6:00 - 7:00 pm and so I took him immediately!
