Hello, you are through to Dr Linda, a UK based vet.
When and where was she stung?
Does she have any ill effects such as swelling, trouble breathing or lethargy?
The fact that she has not been vaccinated does not make a diffreence here and puts her at no extra risk.
And was she stung on the face?
Can you see the stinger?
Perfect, thank you.
As she is otherwise well, it is unlikely she is going to have a serious reaction (these are rare) but do keep a close eye for the next few hours.
If she tolerates it, you can bathe the area with saline.
You can also give an anti histamine to reduce swelling. 2mg Piriton can be given. However, this is off licence in cats. Side effects are rare. If she seems well, you may choose not to give it.
