That doesnt sound good at all!Because scorpions a  very poisenous.The venom of a scorpion contains digestive enzymes, which can cause extreme pain.The effect of the sting often varies with the size of your pet. If prompt veterinary treatment is not administered, pets bitten by this scorpion may not survive.Some of the symptoms of a scorpion sting may be some of the below- Drooling Tearing from the eyes (the animal looks like he/she is crying) Inappropriate urination and defecation Dilated pupils Muscle tremors Breathing difficulty Collapse Diagnosis Diagnosis is based on exposure to the venomous scorpion. The stinger may still be present in the skin. There are no blood tests available to test for the presence of scorpion venom. Without a known exposure to scorpions, the animal may be erroneously diagnosed with toxic insecticide exposure or epilepsy. Treatment There is no home care for venomous scorpion bites. Careful removal of the stinger can help but prompt veterinary care is strongly recommended. There are antidotes to scorpion venom but their use in animals is not recommended. Most animals respond well to supportive treatment, which is aimed at supporting the animal with intravenous fluids and pain relief. The stinger, if present, should be carefully removed. More aggressive treatments may also be necessary if signs of toxicity worsen. Methocarbamol may be used to reduce muscle tremors. Seizure activity may require diazepam or phenobarbital. Preventative Care Keep your animal confined to your yard, although these scorpions have been found in the yard and as well as the house. Leash walk dogs and do not allow them to roam in areas known to have venomous scorpions. Despite your efforts, it may not be possible to prevent exposure.
Make sure you get your pet the the vet as soon as possible!

This is common problem in Arizona because there is large quantity of scorpion sting in Arizona. The symptoms of scorpion sting are shown after 4 to 6 hours of infection. If you feel that your dog is dizzy and he is lazy and not feeling well then this is the chances of scorpion sting. You have to immediately give him poison control medicine which will eliminate your worries.
