That has happened to both Annabelle and Callie. Callie had a severe reaction to something and we had to take her to the emergency vet. He gave her a cortizone shot. Her entire face and ears swelled. Her ears were so swollen that they wouldn't stand up. It was very frightening. Even after the cortizone shot it took a while for her ears to come back up. The vet said it was a good thing we brought her in because at the very least, her ears could have been damaged from the swelling and not ever gone back up. :shock:

Annabelle's reaction to whatever was not as severe plus we had experience with Callie and knew to give her Benedryl. It did take a while to figure out the dosage because the vet wouldn't tell us without seeing her. I finally called my mom who is a retired nurse.

Rachael I'm sorry, I don't remember the dose. :?

I'm glad Mia is all better now. Tell her not to scare you like that again. :wink:
