My 75 lb. chocolate lab gums are all of sudden very swollen.

Customer Question
My 75 lb. chocolate...

My 75 lb. chocolate lab gums are all of sudden very swollen. I don’t know if he got into something outside. It seems to cold for snakes or red ants. I gave him one Benadryl pill to see if that would help the swelling. Can you recommend anything else. I can text u a picture if that would help. Thank you.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the lab's name and age?

Tucker and he’s 4.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Tucker?

No. Except he licks everything. Very healthy overall.
