My hound dog just came in and s gums are very pink (red)

Customer Question

My hound dog just came in and his gums are very pink (red) that's unusual for him. His face is swollen. His jowls are puffy. Should I give him a Benadryl. I don't know if he was stung. It's 35 degrees here so not a lot of insects are around.

Any changes to his breathing?
