Hi You are chatting to dr Louis.

Has he vomited after you saw the swelling?

Customer reply replied 11 days ago
No vomiting so far. He seems normal other than the swelling
Dog Veterinarian: retnev, Dog Veterinarian replied 11 days ago

Thanks. It could be an allergy to something that a chew or an insect sting.

I usually advise some salmon oil tablets/ drops. They are a natural anti-allergy medication.

Ok, thank you. If you have an antihistamine in the house, one can give one of that as well.

If its only a local irritation, washing out his mouth with water will help. If he'll allow you.

If this has helped you, please give me a positive rating.

Take care, Louis.
