French bulldog. Developed swelling under left eye (quite significant) and slight swelling under right eye and generally her whole face is swollen (looks like a boxer after a fight). No evidence of a bite mark. She is 8 months old and weighs 20 pound. Washed her face with cold water and gave her 10mg of Benadryl (concerned about effect so gave low dose). Showing pain if we touch the swollen area but all other behavior seems fairly normal. Breathing is ok.

My dog is acting completely unusual. She's a rescue and
Hi, my dog is acting completely unusual. She's a rescue and usually will not hang around long to be held. Just let her out for the evening toilet with me other two and she didn't move. Got on the sofa next to her and called her over, it took her a few good minutes to get up and she struggled. She has been fine all day and has been eating and drinking. She's breathing shallowly and every now and again will tense and have head / neck and shoulder tremors but her stomach does not tense. She isn't bothered if I press around her stomach. She's having moments of breathing quite rapidly and then it goes back to shallow breaths. Her gums are looking fine and her skin springs back when I pull it up on the back of her neck and her back. She has walked, but slowly and clumsily and with her head down.
I was just wondering if it is safe to give a 14 week old
Hi, I was just wondering if it is safe to give a 14 week old puppy metronidazole. We just had a vet visit because my puppy has diarrhea. A stool sample has been sent to the lab, will probably know results by tomorrow. We brought a stool sample to my puppy's initial visit and it was negative (about two-three weeks ago). I am nervous about giving a puppy drugs and wanted another opinion.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name?Customer: MishkahJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Mishkah?Customer: He is otherwise healthy. Normal temp and does not appear to have any discomfort, even after our vet palpated his belly. I just have reservations about giving a young puppy meds. I plan to feel him a little boiled hamburger and rice later today.

Oh he had oral surgery yesterday where there was
Oh hi, he had oral surgery yesterday where there was cauterization of an oral tumor. We were told he should only need aspirin for pain but last night he cried non-stop even after aspirin so we gave him acepromazine that had been prescribed for him sometime in the past to try tho help him sleep. He is groggy now but still whiny and we are waiting to give him tramadol in a few hrs that the vet then called in this morning... Around 5am was acepromazine and figured maybe around 1-2pm tramadol ? He just still seems distressed. Would that sedate him too much ?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about in?Customer: He did receive anesthesia at the vet yesterday around 1pm. Walked out on his own around 5pm. Breathing normally just a little congested.. 9yrs old, otherwise healthy
