This is Dr. Christian. Welcome to JustAnswer. A few questions will help me get a clearer picture of the situation:

  • How old is your dog?
  • How much does your dog weigh?
  • Does your dog have any medical conditions or have other medical conditions?
  • What are the symptoms?

She is about 7 years old

55ish pds

Not aware of any medical conditions at this time

Yesterday, her lips were rock hard. She does not want us to touch her mouth and definely open it up for us to see. We brought her to our vet. She suggest maybe a bee sting? Benadryl 50mg 3Xday. Didn't make a difference. When not sleeping she is wincing in pain and crying. She does not want any hard food. She kept us up all niight crying and wincing in pain.

Thank you for the information. Try giving her one 325mg buffered aspirin every 12 hours for pain. It can be given safely for 3-4 days but I would recommend having her rechecked tomorrow to find out the cause. She may need some sedation tomorrow so that her mouth can be examined more closely. If you have more questions please let me know.
