Stung by a Scorpion with Sting Closeup!
So what I'm going to do right now is intentionally get stung by a giant desert hairy scorpion. One. Two. Three. aggressive tribal drums snarling Scorpions, scorpions, scorpions. The name along causes most people, including myself, to cringe. Armed up front with lobsterlooking pinchers called pedipalps, and from the back, a quickstriking tail, tipped with a venominjecting stinger. These arachnids definitely command respect. This is the part where I get stung by a scorpion. I've never been stung by a scorpion, but today I'm going to intentionally take a sting.
To prove that not all scorpions are capable of killing you. Hopefully by demonstrating this firsthand, you will take away a more understanding perspective of this overly vilified arachnid. Yeah, well, hopefully it's the last time. I've done a pretty good job not being stung by insects and arachnids my entire life, so this this, uh, one of those forced situations. We'll see what happens. We like to take all measures to make sure that all safety concerns are addressed. There is a small, very small, minute chance that you could have an allergic reaction.
Right. To the sting. In the event that that does occur, we have secured the EpiPen pack here. And that's, uh, that's sort of like the last line of defense. If he does go into anaphylactic shock, we will squeeze the epipen after removing the sheathe to expose the needle, very long needle. Coyote Let's not talk about it. And then, boom. This in no way will cause any harm to the animal. The only person who's going to pay for this little experience is me.
Some of you probably think this is ridiculous. Some will think it's crazy. And those of you who know about scorpions will say, It's no big deal, it's just a giant desert hairy. It will be like a bee sting. And that's the point I'm trying to make. Not all scorpions are as dangerous as advertised. Ready Mark Yup, go ahead. I'm Coyote Pererson, and I'm entering the strike zone. One, two, three. Aghh! Ah, geez. Yup, he got me. Aggghhh! It wasn't that bad. Well that was it.
Mark Is it hard to close your hand Huh Mark Tell us. Voiceover Yeah. Hold on a second, I'm. Voiceover Can I ask where the scorpion went Sweatin' like crazy. The scorpion's right here, I think he just wanted to get into the shade. Um, all right, well that was a lot of nerves. Um, but it really didn't hurt as bad as I thought. The giant desert hairy scorpion it's supposedly only like a bee sting. I don't think it even hurt as much as a bee sting.
Definitely didn't hurt as much as a hornet or a wasp sting. I think he was just scared. I mean, I had my hand on him, so he wanted to get away. Just a defense tactic. And now he's down in the shade and hopefully you guys don't have to use that EpiPen. Fortunately, I had no major adverse reaction to the venom, just a little swelling and tenderness. The giant desert hairy scorpion is not very dangerous, but there are about 25 species of scorpion in the world that do have a potentially lethal venom,.
How your dog can protect you before youre born
Mmmmhhhh, puppies! Most dogowners say companionship is the number one reason to have a cuddly, devoted tailwagger, and some people also have dogs for assistance or protection. And just look at them! They're so cute! So it's not surprising that we're willing to put up with lesssavory features of dogs, like muddy pawprints and slobber all over everything. Yet slobber and other pet dirt may actually be a pet benefit too, especially if you happen to be an unborn baby. Dogs and also cats influence the microbialbacterial communities in our homes so much that if your.
Mother lives with a dog or cat while she's pregnant with you, you're about 30 less likely to suffer from allergies as a child. This sounds kind of crazy, and we don't know exactly why it happens but the most likely explanation is called the hygiene hypothesis. You know how children from Amish farm families have been found to suffer less from allergies and asthma than is typical in the modern westernized world Well, scientists think it's because their immune systems develop more fully thanks to exposure to a wide variety of dirt, bacteria,.
And germs in fermenting feed, cow manure, and other barnyard delights. A key part of your immune system is the cells that recognize and neutralize foreign bacteria, viruses, transplanted body parts or even your own damaged cells. Healthy cells in your body have distinctive proteins on them that immune cells recognize as part of 'you', while intruders and unhealthy cells without 'you' proteins are flagged for careful monitoring. If any 'notyou' stuff starts causing too much harm, your immune cells will attack it and take note to act quickly and vigorously against it in the future basically, learning who's.
Harmlessly passing through, and who's a dangerous intruder. But if the immune system incorrectly identifies an intruder or doesn't properly learn who's who in the first place, our bodies can overreact to harmless substances like a lifethreatening allergic reaction to a minor bee sting. In the Western world, the percentage of children who suffer from immunesystem overreactions like allergies and asthma has roughly doubled in the past 40 years or so, even as infectious diseases have become much less common thanks to improved hygiene, water sewage treatment, and so on. It's highly likely that the increased.
Prevalence of allergies and asthma is due in part to the fact that the environments we live in are too clean and don't give our immune system proper opportunity to learn who's who at a young age. Kind of like how we're better at learning foreign languages when we're younger, our immune systems are best at learning to distinguish harmless foreign substances from harmful ones when exposed to them very early in life. That's why having dogslobber, kitty hairballs and muddy pawprints around your mother while you're in utero might get your immune system off to a proper start even before you're born!.
We still don't know exactly how your mother's exposure to extra bacteria influences you in the womb, but we do know that having a pet around before and after your birth may help keep your immune cells from barking up the wrong tree.

Emergency Dog Health Care How to Treat Dog Insect Bites
Hi I'm Dr. Adrienne Mulligan of Camp Verde Veterinary Clinic in Arizona and I'm here today to talk to you about insects bites and what you could do at home on behalf of expertvillage. Insects bites and scorpions stings and spider bites and fly bites and things like that all happens on a daily bases and your pet would not necessarily have a problem with most of these. Unless they have a allergy to them many of these insects are not as toxic as people think they are. Black widow spiders probably not as bad in a dog as most people.
Fear although if they get enough of a bite in a small enough dog it could cause some neurologic problems so this are things that may need to see a vet as quickly as possible. The most common effect in a insect bite is going to be a swallowing, a swelling of a paw, redness of a skin, or it could be the face or anywhere that the dog has got bitten by the insect. You might see hives all over the body. Hives just like in people they are little bumps on they would raise the hair so you would notice these little bumps all.
Over your dog with hair raised. Redness along the ears and the eyes and swelling of the face. These are things that usually happen from a bug bite or a bee sting something that a dog is allergic to. So there are some things that you could do to help. Number one is very safe to give a dog your basic benadryl. Diphenhydramine is the generic name for it and you could get either one at your drug store. You usually give this at a milligram per pound. So if your dog ways 50 pounds he could have 50 milligrams. These come in 25 milligrams tablets. If you.
Have a little dog that ways 10 pounds you might want to get the liquid for children the plain benadryl and follow the direction on how many milligrams as in a teaspoon so you won't overdose them. Basically it is one milligrams per pound orally. Then you could apply ice or ice packs things that you keep in the freezer for muscle injures and you could wrap them with a towel. You could use baking soda if you see the wound to draw out in venom like a bee sting. The most important part is to get that benadryl into to them.

First Aid for Insect Bites How to Identify Bee Wasp Stings
You know, many times throughout the year, many of us are bitten by the common bee, wasp, or hornet. Hi, I'm Captain Joe Bruni, and what I'm going to talk about is how to identify that you've been stung or bitten by the common bee, wasp, or hornet. Many times, the wasp or hornet will leave some type of what looks like a small hole in the skin, or a dark spot. The area will swell and begin to turn red. The common bee will leave some type of stinger as they detach it and fly off. Keep in mind, the stinger from the common bee should not.
Be removed with a pair of tweezers or with anything that could squeeze the venom sac, and cause further envenomation of that stinger. Something like a butter knife or a credit card could be used to scrape the stinger away from the skin against the grain, so the stinger can be easily removed without squeezing it or injecting more toxin into the body. Apply ice, and wash the wound with soap and water monitoring for signs of some type of allergic reaction, which is commonly referred to as an anaphylactic reaction. Anaphylaxis will.
Include difficulty in breathing, a swelling of the tongue, and some other sign that the person is going into some type of respiratory distress, or hives forming over the rest of the body.

Identification that you've been bitten by one of those is commonly some type of small hole or stinger left in the, in the skin, accompanied by redness, burning sensation, and pain.

4 Natural remedies for hay fever and allergies
4 Natural remedies for hay fever and allergies Allergies can produce a great deal of suffering. In America alone, around 28 million people suffer from hay fever, and that does not include all the individuals who are allergic to pet dander, dust, foods, and bee stings. Allergies are the result of an immune response gone overboard. Substances like dust, pollen, dust mites, and so forth are not harmful like pathogens. But in the allergic individual, these substances produce an extreme immune response. From debilitating to a mere annoyance, allergy symptoms are no fun.
Thankfully, there is a place for natural remedies in allergy management. Here are some natural approaches that may help reduce allergy symptoms. 1 Ginkgo Have you heard of Ginkgo for memory Interestingly, Ginkgo contains some substances that inhibit a chemical produced by the body during an allergic response plateletactivating factor, or PAF. When your body produces PAF in response to an allergen, the PAF sets off a chain of events that lead to allergic symptoms and inflammation. Inhibiting the PAF means that the allergic response does not get to complete its cycle.
It's like breaking the link in a chain. Ginkgo is generally sold in standardized extract form. Herbalists recommend 60 to 240 milligrams daily, but no more than that. Ginkgo is low in side effects but high in effectiveness. 2 Garlic Garlic contains a substance called quercetin, which can actually be taken as a supplement. Other foods contain quercetin, too, but garlic has high concentrations of this substance. Quercetin is reputed to slow down inflammatory reactions, such as those found in allergic reactions. Onions, too, contain a significant amount of quercetin.
3 Enzymatic Therapy Enzymes or a lack of them are implicated in the development of allergies. At their very basic level, allergens are proteins, and certain enzymes are able to break down proteins before they can incite an allergic reaction. Enzymes can be taken in supplement form, but they may have digestive effects. However, many allergy sufferers find that the side effects are greatly reduced when the enzymes are taken with food. 4 Quercetin Quercetin supplements are often suggested as a treatment for allergies. As noted above, certain foods contain quercetin, too.
