Customer Question
Hi My dog has...

Hi My dog has developed swollen eyes and face over the last 5 hours. she does not seem in pain but very restless and itchy. What could have caused this in the middle of winter?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Swelling started on lower eye lid and then started in other eye. Eyes now nearly closed and lips and muzzle becoming swollen. She is a young Norwich terrier only 11 months.
