Our French bulldogs face...

Our French bulldogs face is swollen and she is vomiting. can we give her something or should we go to emergency vet?

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Hopefully it didn't make a mess. Did the French bulldog eat anything unusual?

Not that we know of, but its possible she ate something in the yard

Veterinarian's Assistant: What is the French bulldog's name and age?

Lola, she is 10 months old

Not sure how long, just got home.
No difficulty breathing
Awake and alert just looks like she feels bad.
She weighs 20 lbs

It sounds like she is having an allergic reaction. I would start her on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) every 12 hours for the next 5 days. If at any point you notice difficulty breathing or if she vomits the Benadryl I would have her checked by ER veterinarian. You can buy Benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service. If you have any follow-up questions don't hesitate to ask. If finished, please take a moment to rate my service. See you again soon!
