Hello,

Hello,

I am so sorry. Our internet went out last night and I couldn't sign back on until today! I am available to help you today. Lets see if we can get this figured out!

How often does the swelling happen? Are there any other symptoms when it happens, such as itching or shaking head or hair loss?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
it swells on and off could be n3x a week or more.no its an all around swelling i can't say if itching happens but he does it his neck,no head shaking or hair lost
Dog Veterinarian: Sarah Snow,
 replied 3 months ago

Ok, does he act abnormal or painful when it happens? If the entire neck swells I'm wondering if it could be edema...any history of heart issues?
