If your cat got stung by a bee, wasp or yellow jacket, it will cause a painful swelling at the site of the sting.
In treating an insect bite, you will need to:
- Identify the insect
- Remove a stinger, if possible, with tweezers
- Make a paste of baking soda and apply it directly to the sting
- Ice packs relieve swelling and pain
- Calamine lotion relieves itching
If there are signs of generalized toxicity TAKE YOUR CAT TO THE VET!!
