Customer Question
My dog's eyes are...

My dog's eyes are swollen. I'm not sure what happened. I put hydrocortisone and ice to bring down the swelling. Initially when i came home he was fine then he started to scratch his eyes. Can he be allegeric to the outside sounds of the fireworks?

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

Cholo and he's9 yrs old

Veterinarian's Assistant: How old is Cholo?

9 yrs old

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cholo?

He keeps nervously straching his body and licking his legs but i don't see a rash of any kind.
