Addy did not sleep good last night. She sleeps with me so I hear her making licking sounds all night. Finally at 4am this morning I had to put her on the floor. I wasnt getting any sleep either. So when I get up this morning I notice her face looks odd. Within a couple of hours....it just ballooned! Rushed her to the vet. They were closed for the morning but took her anyway. Gave her a shot of steriods. They think something bit her. Hopefully she will be better within 24 hours....but she looks so pathetic right now :(

Awww her poor little eye! She looks quite sad. Poor thing. I'm glad the vet could get a steroid into her right away. What a worry! I hope she's on the rebound soon.

Ahhh she looks WAY WORSE here! The pic you sent to my phone just looked a lil puffy. The same thing happened to Oakley -- got bit by something and ballooned and they gave the steroid shot and steroids/benedryl and was fine but she was a big pufferface for a few hours still after the shot. So very glad you got her seen right away and she will be right as rain sooner than later :)

Thanks Tracy. They gave us steriod pills in case it happens again. Vet didnt want something like this happening at night or on the weekend and we end up at the emergency vet.

Thats what they gave her......steroid/benadryl. Pufferface is exactly how she looks. She's so sad and clingy right now :( I have no idea what caused it but you know how these pups are....noses are always in the dirt.

OMGGGGGG!!!! Poor little Addy!!! She was making licking sounds...which could be an upset tummy too. Maxie did that one night after he got into the cat box. :roll: At any rate, I hope she's feeling better soon! Poor thing...she looks so miserable. :(

Oh my goodness. Poor baby. :( She looks so miserable in the picture.
I went through something similar with Lila, but it was the Nupro that did it to her. There are pics of her on a old thread.
I'm happy to hear she is doing better. I know how scary it can be.

I was wondering if it was the Nupro:confused::confused: Ive been giving it to the pups for 3 weeks now. How did you know it was the Nupro and how long were you giving it to her before she had the reaction????

Addy's swelling is completely gone this morning :hello1:

I called Nupro and they said if she had a reaction to it...it would have been within the first 24-48 hrs. Addy has been on it for almost 3 weeks. So Im going to continue with the Nupro because I do notice a difference in her shedding and thickness of her coat. So....if her face swells again...I might have to consider it being the Nupro....but I have some steroid pills in case that happens.
