What do I watch for if I think my puppy was stung by a bee or wasp?

Although uncomfortable for a few minutes, bee or wasp stings rarely cause any lasting problems. As we talk about in the "puooy,s medicine cabinet" Benadryl or diphenhydramine syrup can be helpful in relieving pain and swellling.  Usually you would see redness and swelling at the point of the sting.  Sever allergic reactions are extremely rare.
