Hello. My name is***** and I am a veterinarian that can answer your question. I understand Nutella has swelling on the corner of her lips. Are you able to send a picture of the lips so I can see what you are observing? That would help. You can attach a picture here by clicking on the paperclip icon on the toolbar. Please let me know if you have any difficulty doing that.
