Friend, it sounds like your dog is having an allergic reaction either to something he ate or came in contact. This is what you can do: 1- Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg 3 tablets (75mg) every 12 hours for 5 days. You can buy benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy. 2- If by tomorrow morning they are not gone follow up with family vet, he may need additional medications. 3- If at any point you notice difficulty breathing have him checked immediately by ER veterinarian. Note: Yes, I am here I was typing. Please do not forget to rate my answer - I hope you found it to be excellent. If there’s more I can do, please use the reply tab and let me know. It’s my goal to provide you with excellent service." Thank you for your business and I hope to work with you again soon!
