Poor Riley, glad he is better today :)

Esco got stung inside his mouth last summer, I found the sting and pulled it out then gave him a piriton. It didn't go down so he had to go to the vet that evening for a steroid shot. His poor face was so swollen (bit like mine last night - but that's a whole other story which only facebook people will know about lol!)

Crikey that is early for a sting!!!  I've seen a few bumble bees around here but that's about all so far.

Glad Riley's paw is returning to normal size now  :Luv:

 :thanks: everyone, it was still massive when I went to bed last night, I think because I didn't get the half Piriton into him quickly enough,  and had resigned myself to a vet visit if it hadn't gone down but luckily for Riley it is back to almost normal size now  :)

Looks like I'll need to be stocking up on the Piriton again too  :tired:

Sorry to hear Riley has been in the wars again Helen  :(  Poor little man.  Hope the swelling has gone now.

There do seem to be some very large bees about don't there?  I'm quite sure Groucho was stung last week as I found him playing with a poor bee and he kept shaking one paw for a few minutes afterwards.  The only piriton tabs I found in cupboard were well out of date.  I rang vets and was told to bring him in if I noticed a swelling.  He has quite chunky paws/legs and I didn't notice any swelling so didn't do anything and he was OK.   I will add some piriton tablets to shopping list ..

Sending a  :hug: to Riley

The only plants I have that are bee attracting (not sure if wasps are attracted too?) are some lavendar plants but they're not even flowering yet.

I've just managed to get the half piriton down him hidden in some applewood cheese that I had in the freezer so hopefully the swelling won't last as long now. Poor boy :care:

He's really rather obsessed with the stingy things isn't he? I've only seen one so far this year! I wonder if there's anything you could put in your garden to deter the, plants or otherwise?

It's started early this year, poor Riley has just been stung again  :( After what happened to Lottie's poor Minxy last year it's really worrying as what I viewed as an annoyance before could actually be fatal  :(

He won't take his 1/2 Piriton either, I tried to hide it in Dairylea, then Defurrum treats then Webbox but because the bare tablet touched his tongue with the failed Dairylea attempt he could obviously tase the bitterness and refused all other efforts  :tired:

Just a phone pic but you can see how swollen it is just a few minutes after happening...

Well about half an hour ago Lu caught what looked like a slim wasp (could have been a 'fake' one though if you know what I mean) - I shrieked at him and he moved his feet releasing it and the 'wasp' flew out of the back door.  Twenty minutes later Riley's foot was swelling up so maybe he caught Lu's, very angry, wasp  :naughty:

BM  - I don't think there's a nest nearby, I thought I had one over my back door but had a visit from pest control and they were bees - not sure when 'bee season' is but haven't seen any bees round the door for ages  :shify:

I think he's more addicted to the Webbox treat that's moulded round the Piriton to be honest  :evillaugh:

Really!  :scared:

When Sagey Boy joined "Club Foot" I noticed a wasps nest....couldnt see the nest but they were flying in and out of next doors guttering so OH phoned up and someone came out and sprayed them...by two days they were no more....

The neighbours were on hols at the time and wondered why when they got back there were about 6 wasps in their kitchen!  :sick:
