My schnauzer got into something or stung by something. We gave him Benadryl, but it didn't help. I can tell by holding him he is retaining a lot of water. We don't have any money to take him to the vet. He is 8 yrs old, and we are afraid we are going to lose him. Please help.

Hi,

My name is***** and I will try to help you and Ben tonight.

First, why do you think that he got into something or was stung? What is happening so that you think he is retaining water? When did this all start? How quickly did it come on?

Next, how much Benadryl did you give him? How much does he weigh?

What color are his gums? Medium pink, pale or red? Any vomiting or diarrhea?

Please let me know the answers to these questions so that I can help you and Ben this evening.
