---"I want to add my praise for WiggleLegs Frog toy.  My cat loves to play with WiggleLegs No other toy will do.  When I ask her to find WiggleLegs she goes right to it!  I just ordered 3 more as I'm afraid you will stop making them and then I don't know what we will do!"

---"Once again, you have provided excellent service with an excellent product. Thanks for the extra - it was a hit! My cats are totally addicted to the WiggleLegs Frog, so please keep plenty in stock!"


---"I just wanted to let you know that my cat, Molly, is absolutely addicted to your FlyToys. I literally have to hide them from her so she will go to sleep at night, but as soon as morning arrives she is sitting right in front of their hiding place waiting for them to come out and play."

Each MetPet FlyToy is handmade by skilled artisans with great attention to detail.  They come in the form of bugs, amphibians, mammals and more in three very reasonable price points.

---"I can't believe how your company understands cats so well"

 

Treating bee stings in dogs

Some dogs are allergic to bees and need immediate attention!

MetPet.com Staff Writer

If your dog gets stung by a bee, here are some suggestions on what to do:

1. Possible allergic reaction - get veterinary help immediately

Seek veterinary help immediately if you dog exhibits any of the following symptoms:

- has difficulty breathing

- has difficulty swallowing

- exhibits hyperactivity such as excessive barking possibly followed by fainting.  Bee sting reactions can sometimes mimic seizures.

- swelling spreads beyond the sting area



2. No allergic reaction

- Remove the stinger.  Scrape the visible portion with a card, fingernail or other thin and rigid object.  Pulling on the stinger could cause it to break or even push more venom into the skin.

- If you cannot reach the stinger, leave it as it should eventually be shed. 

- Place some meat tenderizer into a bowl with a small amount of water and mix it into a paste.  Apply this to neutralize the venom which will help relieve pain and swelling.  Keep it on for at least 30 minutes.  You may have to wrap gauze or cloth around the area to prevent licking. Afterwards, you can simply rinse it off. 

- Alternatively, you can place an ice cube on the site for a few minutes to relieve the pain.

If your dog does not exhibit additional symptoms from the sting then all you need to do is avoid letting him run through flower beds.  Flowering ground covers such as Vinca can also attract bees and may lead to stings.
