The swollen eye is helpful information, thanks. That could indicate a problem with and infected tooth, or an infection in the eye.

Can you take her temperature? Are her gums pink in color?

Gums are pink and there is no swelling or discharge.

It is a good sign her gums are pink. Can you take her temperature with a thermometer?

Try to get her to take some liquids like broth, water, Pedialyte. If she feels warm or seems painful, you could see if aspirin helps. You can give 1 baby aspirin (81 mg) to a 15 to 20 pound dog, once to twice daily but if it makes her vomit, do not repeat it.

How is Candi doing? Can I help with or answer anything else? Was I helpful at all?


Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Candi is doing better, she is on steroids for what we believe is a slipped disc. She is moving more and acting more like herself.

Thank you for the update; I am glad to hear she is better.
