Customer Question

Hello, I have a six month old puppy...***** ***** about 13 pounds. There are two things going on with her...The most important issue is that it appears that she got stung on her muzzle. It is swollen where she was stung, but it has not continue to swell since the initial swelling. Her breathing is fine, but she appears to be a bit uncomfortable. I put a cold compress on her but was wondering about giving her Benadryl. The other issue is some crusting on the eyelashes of her left eye. Not sure if that is serious or not. The crusting was there a number of hours prior to the bee stinging, so they are not related. It is slight and her eyes don't appear to be red. But was not sure what to do about it.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Russell?
Customer: Her name is Latte. No...I don't think so
