Hello,

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your dog. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

This may be an allergic reaction to an insect bite, bee sting, etc. If you look at his gums are they pink in color or pale? It is a good sign if they are pink but if his gums look pale it might be more serious.

I would give him some Benedryl, 25 mg per 25 pounds of body weight, and repeat that every 2 to 4 hours until he seems better.

I hope you were able to see my response; I have not heard from you! How is your dog doing? Let me know if this was helpful and if you have any more questions.

It is sad for me when I never hear back from a customer; was my response seen, or helpful? How is your dog doing?
