Over the course of their life, there's a good chance that your dog will suffer one or more wasp stings. In most cases, these stings will be minor. The dog may lick the affected area and you may notice a slight bit of swelling. In some circumstances, you may even see the wasp's stinger and be able to remove it with tweezers. The majority of wasp stings don't require the attention of a veterinarian, but there can be cases in which you should take your dog to the local animal hospital after a wasp run-in.
If you've noticed that your dog isn't responding to commands as quickly as it used to, the animal isn't necessarily being defiant. There's a possibility that your pet may not react to what you're saying because it's struggling to hear. There are many different indicators that may lead you to believe your dog is suffering from hearing loss to some degree. If you have this worry, it's worthwhile to schedule a checkup with the pet's veterinarian.
