He got stung by a bee a little while ago. He has gotten stung before, but it never has been swollen. Please give your opinion! He is a 13 week old German shorthaired pointer if that helps.

i think you should go to the vet, but thats just my opnion i could be wrong, but he could be having an allergic reaction.

how long was a little while ago? if it was over 2days ago i'd take him to the vet because he may still have the stinger stuck in his eye and as Nibbler said, he could be having an allergic reaction

Can't say exactly , may be it can be any kind of allergic reaction my puppy had same problem but it was due to allergic reaction, so i would recommend you to wait for 24 hours and if it is already more then 24 to 48 hours then take him to the vet.

I'd at least call your vet. Sometimes if the reaction isn't bad they can tell you the dosage of over the counter meds to give. They may tell you to bring him in depending on the situation, but even then it's better to be safe than sorry.

Exactly, I agree with you ! My friend was in same situation and he didn't care to go for a vet or haven't consider any one else even. After some times his dog felt down suddenly while walking, the result was disastrous !!

Bring him to the vet or at least call. Ask what to do.
