Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Benadryl is fine to give to both dogs and cats, and the rule of thumb is 1 mg per lb of body weight. So, theoretically you could give Maggie 2 25mg pills at a time, though I'd start her off at 1 and see how that works. She doesn't seem to be having any breathing difficulties, does she?

That looks a lot like a bee sting..my two have gotten them from eating fallen apples that bees are in or on. Benadryl is fine and even recommended by my vet. Smile

I think it is a bee sting as well. I got 25mg of a doggie benedryl bottle at the feed store. You know Meredith I was reading I could give her 2 but I gave her one to start with. Nope her breathing is fine. Just the bump and sneezing.

I hope this will help.
