Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question today.
How long is Finn outside each time?
Any change in breathing pattern?
Is she still eating/drinking normally?
Do you have air conditioning in the house?
Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Allergies are definitely a possibility....especially this time of year when ponds are in bloom.
Something you could do would be to give her some Benadryl....the normal dose is 1-2mg/pound, so if she weighs 75 pounds, she could have between 3-6 of the regular 25mg tablets twice daily.
If you try the Benadryl and her eyes don't look any better by the time your vet opens on tuesday, then you should have them take a peek at her, just in case there's an infection brewing.
I hope this helps.
The panting and restlessness after being outside in that kind of temp is very normal...so I'd just limit the amount of time she's outside until things start to cool down a little bit. We don't want her to end up with heat stroke.
