Bee or wasp stings
- If you get stung by a bee or a wasp, treating the area immediately will reduce the pain, stinging and swelling.
- Take Healing Solution Spray , a few pieces of gauze and Vetrap (funky sticky bandage) or another bandage material.
- Spray Healing Solution on all the pieces of gauze until it is soaking wet.
- Secure the bandage to the affected area with Vetrap or a bandaid and spray more solution on every 2 - 4 hours to keep it moist. (If you wish, you can change the bandaid every time).
- Keep the bandage on for minimum 48 hours! Normally, this approach will keep the swelling down completely. In the past, I have tried this several times and learned that removing the bandage after 24 hours makes the stung area swell again. However, applying another compress will make it go down.
- The treatment usually works on its own, however if you or your dog are very sensitive, we suggest you to give a dose of Apis 200 C (homeopathic treatment) every 4 - 6 hours for the first 24 hours. This remedy is also VERY GOOD - if your pooch gets stung in the mouth.
- If your dog continues to swell or has a severe reaction please see your veterinarian immediately.
The process is a little simpler and you do not need to use the bandage. Just spray the affected itchy skin every few hours for 24 hours and all should be fine.

- HEALING SOLUTION ONLY
- INSECT BITE & STING PACK- HEALING SOLUTION + APIS 200C (Homeopathic remedies may be be shipped separately)
