Thank you for the picture, it just arrived. This looks like an allergic reaction. Is your companion on any medication at this time?

Ask Your Own Dog Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
Only on oral flea medication, but has been on that for a couple of months. He is visiting a dog day care as I'm working out of town. He's been doing that for about 6 weeks
Dog Specialist: PitRottMommy, Veterinary Nurse replied 10 months ago

To help with the swelling, he can receive 1-2mg/pound of body weight of regular Benadryl every 8-12 hours orally. If this does not help or he worsens, he needs to see a vet overnight and they will likely add steroids. Typically we see improvement within the first 8 hours and complete resolution of symptoms within 48 hours. Continue giving the Benadryl until there is no swelling.
