Can one of your friends take over hostess duties while you take your pup to the vet? I guess that would be an emergency vet since it's Sunday today.

I'm waiting for about 30 minutes to pass.... when my hubby gets home from Church. It's going to be a longggg 30 minutes. She can hardly see now. The only different thing I can think of with her is I put frontline plus on her about 3 days ago for the first time... and she got her shots 3 weeks ago. She's scheduled to recieve her booster shots this Wed. I feel really bad for her and i'm in bind.

This happened to one of my chis last Sunday. The vet said mine had an allergic reaction to something. If you have any childrens benadryl give her that. Thats what the vet told me and it helped. Give her 3 cc's of childrens benadryl every 4 hours. It will go away! If you dont have childrens you might wanna call...I know regular benadryl is much stronger.

Yep that happened to Poco after he got his shots & the vet said Beandryl too. Please if you're not taking her to the vet watch her very carefully to make sure her airway doesn't swell. If she seems to be having trouble breathing rush her to the vet.

Chloe had an allergic reaction to penicilin and got really red and spotty. She didn't swell but she did get something to counter act the allergy. I hope she's ok and gets to the vets soon! Keep us updated!

Actually Chloe also had an allergic reaction to Advantix. It wasn't the typical symptoms though. She was twitching and couldn't sit still. I stay away from pesticides now. It was weird bc she had used it before and didn't have a problem. Goodluck with your baby!

This is definalty a illergic reaction, mylo had this b4, if you go on search and type in "my poor little mylo", you can see my thread there are piccys on there too of mylos swallon face, see if he looks the same as your chi!! i took mylo to the vet and they gave him a injection that reduced the swelling, it went down eventually, but it sure made him itch his face, he was rubbing around on the carpet, poor little thing.... Hope ur chi gets better soon.
