A female Jersey calf around nine months was brought to veterinary dispensary, with a history of severe bilateral swelling at the vulva after coming from the grazing. On observation, found it was a wasp sting at multiple sites by the presence of erythematous spots on the vulval area. The animal was treated with NSAID, Antihistaminics, topical corticosteroids ointment and advised for cold fomentation. The animal was recovered from the initial anaphylactic reaction. After three days of therapeutic management, the animal showed uneventful recovery from the wasp bite injury.
