are u still working on my request
Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 1 year ago.

Yes I am, I am typing. Sorry.

Expert:  Dr. Peter replied 1 year ago.

Friend, what you are describing is consistent with an allergic reaction. I would recommend you start him on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg every 8-12 hours for the next 5 days. If you notice any difficulty breathing have him checked by ER veterinarian. If the swelling is not better by tomorrow morning have him checked by family veterinarian he may need additional medications. You can buy Benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy.

Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
