Our Dog Gets Bit By A Jellyfish.

 

Bronte our Golden Retriever got a nasty Jelly fish sting whilst swimming in the bay near where we live the other day. Yes it's a sting not a bite isn't it?

She yelped and was very quiet and forlorn looking for a day or two.  We gave her milk and our duck and hen eggs to eat and she's making a good recovery.

The wife gave her baths in Tea Tree Oil in the water.  Our local chemist said that we should make a paste with Bicarbonate of Soda and water.  It takes away the sting.

The exceptional hot weather must have brought the Jellyfish to the Gulf Stream where we live.

Please be careful if you go in the sea this Irish Bank Holiday weekend there are some very big Jellyfish about.

  1. Poor Bronte. We kind of thought fur might be a protective layer - but clearly not so. I, the Tigger, always knew that going in or even near water is dangerous. We hope she makes a good recovery. xxx Mr T

  2. Bronte would be better off being like that owl and pussycat and sailing in a boat Tigger. Thanks. We let them play in a paddling pool when it's hot until those nasty Jellyfish go away.

  3. Oh poor Bronte. Luckily I don't swim so no danger of me getting into that water.

  4. I know JayCee. She was only born in November and just learned to swim and really enjoying her dips in the bay and this nasty Jellyfish decided to sting her. She yelped and was very sad for a couple of days but she's back to herself now. Thankfully.

  8. It's like Portugal at the moment Debby. Who's ever known for farmers to make hay in May? There's quite a few whales and dolphins been seen close to the coast on the Irish Riviera at the moment. It looks like it's going to be a great long weekend.

  9. Poor Bronte! I bet that the three Bronte sisters were never stung by jellyfish.

  10. I bet they got stung by a publisher like most writers do.

  11. Good to hear Bronte is better. Do they not give jellyfish warnings when the season is on for them?
