Fat Jowl

It was about this time last year when I looked at Storm and it seemed an area on her left jowl was puffed out.




Later that day, the swelling became more noticeable.



I of course was worried and trying not to freak out. I didn’t know what was going on, but later figured it must be a bee sting. And of course it was the weekend so the vet offices were closed and I didn’t have extra cash to go to the pet ER.

We decided we will see how things would be for her the next day. I woke up to find a partial chubby headed American bulldog.




She laid down and after awhile the oddest thing happened. She began drooling (not odd) but then there was blood in her drool (the odd part). I have seen other dog pictures of being stung by a bee and it looks the same. I just don’t know if any had blood with it… Has anyone dealt with their pet being stung by a bee?

I am a geeky animal lover and have an American Bulldog named Storm. Storm is my everything. She helps keep me sane by being my companion pet. I am an expert in chronic pain as I have Systemic Lupus, Fibromyalgia and migraines. I was diagnosed with Lupus in 2000 and the rest followed after that year.

    1. Yeah I figured it was draining too. I did go to the vet the next day and of course she was in perfect condition. Haha! Oh well, at least the visit gave me peace of mind. πŸ™‚

      1. Don’t cha hate that….you get to the Doctor and everything has cleared up! Murphy’s Law….and the healing power of pooches! Actually that has happened to me, too, with a personal medical problem—The Doctor could see where it HAD BEEN…but it was gone by the time we got to see him!

  1. Poor Storm – it looks like Mumps! Yes, my dogs have been stung by bees on occasion, but all I noticed was a little pink dot on their nose. Storm must be allergic to bee stings, so watch out next time. Glad she healed herself. Dogs are amazing! πŸ™‚
