| | My dog was probably stung by a scorpion
I live in Brazil, and my dog was most likely stung by a brazillian yellow scorpion. My mother found him close to the scorpion and pushed him away, but we think he was probably stung around his face. After that we were in shock and not sure what to do. I did a lot of research that pointed out many symptoms, of which local pain seemed to be the most common and immediate.
Here comes the reason why I'm making this thread: I was not able to identify any part of my dog that seemed to be swollen or more touch sensitive. That led me to believe that he may not have been stung. But he still suffered from a light fever, considering how hot his snout got, but it got better quickly. He seems okay, he is very active and is not crying/ complaining, he's not exhibiting any other symptom that I can see. So, is it possible that he was stung and the light fever was the only symptom presented?
My dog is a small to medium sized breed of lhasa apso and something else, I think (he was a present).
Thank you, to anyone that took the time to read this!
