Pot Bellied Pigs/multiple bee stings


Our 3 yr old potbelly pig has been stung by bees, too numerous to count.  What can we do? Can she have benadryl?

Yes, she can have benadryl. she can also have some baby aspirin. The dose for aspirin is 325 mg per 75 lb of pig. Keep her as calm and quiet as possible. Try to get her down for a belly rub and then pull out as many of the stingers as possible.

If she has a severe allergic reaction she'll need meds quickly. But hopefully this will be just painful not dangerous. And hopefully she won't bother the bees again.
