Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
1) Has Daisy had any access to grasses or insects today? 2) Are you noticing any welts in her coat or along her trunk?
With the acute swelling, I am more concerned that she's experiencing an allergic reaction. Before opting to use eye medication on her, I would recommend a course of benadryl to see if this helps. She can receive 1-2mg/pound of body weight. This should be repeated every 8 hours. Tablets and caplets are usually the easiest to give. We can keep our discussion open for the next few hours to see how she does. If she doesn't make improvement, then we can look at medicating her eye.It also won't hurt to medicate the other puppies with benadryl if they've also been itchy. It may give them some relief.
The caplets will be available in 12.5mg and 1-1.5 every 8 hours would be suitable for her size.
