Good morning , BB is still swollen , I’m not sure if it’s gone down any or if it’s the same , she seemed to have slept pretty good and didn’t sleep with her mouth open, she is acting pretty normal so far What is your suggestion ?

Good morning.

Lets try the diet switch today.

No need to take her in today as would be emergency basis.

Probably good idea to schedule appointment on Monday if she is still scratching a lot and/or the swelling has not resolved.
