I think my dog was bitten by snake or insect, having trouble

Customer Question

I think my dog was bitten by snake or insect, having trouble breathing. I gave her Benadryl but just realized it has pseudoephedrine

Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian and I would like to help you with your wee one today.
What milligrams was the pseudoephedrine?
How much does Bella weigh?
How long has she had it in her system?
Are her gums pink or pale/white?
Can you take a breathing rate for me (just count her breaths for 10 seconds + multiply that by 6)?
Are you seeing any punctures from a snake (since that would be an emergency no matter what)?
