Default Emergency trip to vet

We had to rush poor little Harleigh to the vet at half past midnight last night We have no idea what she might have got into, she snuggled dad most of the evening, or what she may have been bit by (it was only 0 last night, pretty cold for bugs). She had nothing different yesterday, was a little off her food in the morning, but fine for lunch and supper meals. Poor little baby First pictures are her laying on my bed when I decided we should take her in, second pictures were post vet visit, post prednisone shot. On the shopping list today - children's Benadryl! Didn't even realize hubby threw it away, it was apparently out-dated.

Oh my goodness poor thing! No idea what could've caused this? What did the vet say? I'm sending healing vibes your way and wishing a speedy recovery. X

I have no idea Dr Trevor said it was an allergic reaction of some kind. I had brought home a new stuffy, and tried two new sweaters on her (both too small...ugh) but that was all. And this was a couple hours after that. I'm suspecting something outside, but I'm not sure

Poor Harleigh!! I hope she feels better soon! The same thing happened to Lilo when she was a puppy and we never found out what it was. She hadn't gotten into anything and we couldn't see any bug bite/sting. The vet just told us to keep an eye on her and the swelling went down by itself. Thankfully it never happened again!

That was the original advice when I called the after hours number. An hour later both side were swelling and she was so terribly itchy! Poor baby

Oh no poor little thing! I don't remember it being itchy in Lilo's case. It's so scary isn't it!? We freaked out so much when we saw her little face swell up like that!
