Summer is almost gone so we guess dogs know too? Now dogs have the urge to go out even more to enjoy the last bit of sunshine, warmth, and well… a bee sting on a dog.

We have so many dog bee sting pictures below that show you sometimes the bee sting on a dog really doesn’t stop him from having fun.

Try to find if there’s a bee sting on your dog
Basically, you should know beforehand.Check out some dog bee-stung pictures of swollen snouts and you’ll know if your dog has been stung by a bee, too.
Obviously, your dog won’t come and tell you but if you know they’ve been playing out in the sun especially near the flowers, you have to keep a keen eye on ’em.
As you can see in this picture, the severity of the swelling is a little too much. At BluePearl Veterinary Partners, Dr. Sonja Olson; a senior clinician/ vet says: Your dog might start licking its paw or chew softly because of irritation if he’s been stung by a dog.
Identify the place and spot
It’s highly likely that your dog didn’t even play much in the sun but just sat around in the grass and accidentally got stung by a bee.Well, we’re trying our best to tell you the reason doesn’t have to be your naughty dog always, sticking his snout around flowers to be stung.
Mostly, it’s the accidental ‘catch-up’ with a bee.
