When your pup’s paws, nose or any other part of her body comes into contact with a bee that stings, it’s as painful to her as it would be to you. Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) can help take the sting away by creating a paste with a little water.
For Signs of a Dog Bee Sting, See Below:

More serious reactions after a dog bee sting may also occur. These require immediate medical assistance:
