Thank you for your question. My name is***** I have been a small animal veterinarian for 14 years and I'd like to help with your question.The most common reason for a dog to have a swollen muzzle is some kind of allergic reaction... often to an insect bite, but it could be anything really. More serious allergic reactions can effect them systemically.... causing things like vomiting, diarrhea, and low blood pressure. These more serious allergic reactions really need to be treated with steroids. It might be helpful to give benadryl, but with the vomiting I would recommend taking him to the vet ASAP to be on the safe side. I hope that helps, but if you have additional questions please let me know. If not, please rate my answer.
