Re: My dog nearly died last night!!!

hello all,
we picked Herbie up after an overnight stay at the hospital. I am happy to report he is back to normal.
We called in to our local vet (who we like and trust) and the conclusion from all concerned seems to be a bee sting from our garden. Yesterday I spent all day chasing bees away.
This was a very severe reaction which I am informed could be worse next time. So we now carry a syringe and ampoule of cortisone and will need to give him a jab if he falls victim again. The problem is we like walking our dogs and currently I'm sort of paranoid everytime he bounds off. I could not conceive of keeping him on a lead all the time.
Very worrying and I hope it does not happen to any of you good folks.
