I have several 22-25 pound Italian greyhound/beagle mixes. I

I have several 22-25 pound Italian greyhound/beagle mixes. I heard one of them yelp just once really loudly this morning but couldn't tell which one cried out since I was out of the room. So I checked each and couldn't see any injuries and none of them acted as though they were hurt. Fast forward a couple of hours and we noticed swelling on the bridge of the 23 pound's nose. She was acting normally but the swollen area was obviously sensitive and a bit painful. We gave her 2, 12.5 mg chewable children's benadryl tabs (assuming she'd been stung by a bee) but the swelling did not come down as expected had it been an allergic reaction to a bee sting. Now I suspect that it may be swelling from a play injury (the three dogs play pretty roughly together) and would like to give her a single dose of meloxicam to reduce the swelling and provide a bit of pain relief before we take her to the vet in the morning. (Our vet is closed today and their on-call service says they can't answer our medication questions without first seeing her which won't be until tomorrow morning). Is it safe to administer a single dose of the Meloxicam (previously prescribed for her) when she has the 25 mg benadryl currently in her system?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. The noise must be worrying. I'll connect you to the Veterinarian. How old is service?Customer: She is just shy of 2 years old.JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about service?Customer: Service?
