Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

To answer your original question, she can take 1-2mg of benadryl every 8-12 hours for the swelling. If you do not see a marked improvement by morning, I would have her examined.

I’ll be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further.
