Hi You are chatting to dr Louis.

Has he vomited after you saw the swelling?

Customer: replied 4 months ago.
No vomiting so far. He seems normal other than the swelling
Expert:  retnev replied 4 months 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.

Ranger is a Siberian Husky

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

Expert:  retnev replied 4 months ago.

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

Expert:  retnev replied 4 months ago.

Good luck with Ranger.

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

Take care, Louis.
