My dog is scared of Bugs what can I do

I have a 2 year old Border Terrier named Mickey. For the last couple of months at certain times I would see him looking up In the air and he would cower under the table or under my chair and you could tell that he was scared.

It took some time to figure out, but then I saw a fly buzzing around and he went nuts and cowered again. I think what happened is he must have been stung by a bee or wasp or hornet and now whenever he sees a flying bug he gets really scared.

It's now gotten to the point that even when there are no bugs around he will be looking up in the air to see if he can see any.

Is there anything that I can do to help him. :pawprint: :ca: :fingerscr

Tenderfoot, StacyB where are you?

Joey eats bugs out of the air, flies and anything that moves. I can see him getting stung one day and then he will be scared of them. :eek:

Good luck! Sorry I wasn't much help! :)
