Dante vs. Yellow Jacket

Can You Guess Who Won?

Yup the yellow jacket did. What a nasty creature they are! 
There we were, minding our own business. 


Snapping a few pictures and enjoying the scenery, when boom! Dante started jumping sideways.

It was just thankfully just one bee, and he didn't have much of a reaction other than some swelling.


But guess what I carry in my pack? A bite and sting kit! 



I picked up a couple of these kits because we were moving into a rattlesnake area. And while I know how to use it and have done a few practice runs I have never actually used it.

It worked great!

Dz Dog Dad was surprised that I was able to get suction on Dante over his fur, generally you want to shave the area first. But I definitely got a good seal over the sting, and voila! No more lump on the poor boy.


If your dog gets stung watch them carefully, some dogs are just as allergic as humans are to bees. And a sting in the mouth or throat can constrict breathing and may need a veterinarian trip.

  1. Poor guy! That suction kit thing is pretty neat. We have yellow flies here in early/mid summer, and they leave huge lumps where they stink you. Ouch!

    1. Me too! He's never been stung by a bee before so I was a bit concerned how his body would react. Glad he didn't need a vet trip!
