Aww the poor guy ...........I am so sorry. The only thing he can have is one mg per lb of benedryl, I'm afraid aspirin would increase bleeding.
Please dont worry! It sounds like he has dental issues. His Carnassial molars, specifically:
This accumulation of white blood cells at the site of an infection or necrotic material is referred to as pus or an abscess.
Owners often confuse this condition with an eye infection, insect bite, or puncture wound. They may consider it something that, if left alone, will heal on its own. The untreated abscess will, in fact, often spread to 1) the eye causing a very serious and potentially blinding infection or 2) other teeth causing them to be lost also. This is fairly painful for the animal, especially when eating. In dogs that stay outdoors or those with long hair, it may remain unnoticed for a long period of time.
For today he may have one mg per lb of benedryl. Feed him baby food with no onion powder. See his vet in the am.
Please let me know how he is feeling. I hope he will be fine.
Sincerest best wishes,
I went to the vet today and Terri Riba's was right on the mark...Thank you so much for easing my mind until the vet could see my dog....Zero is going to have his tooth removed in two weeks....The vet prescribed an antibiotic and Benadryl....
You are very welcome.
It is my pleasure to help someone as lovely as you and your sweet baby.
I will always be here for both of you.
Thank you for your accept.
I hope Zero feels better very soon.
