Customer Question
My jack russels ears...

My jack russels ears are swollen , he has vomited yellowish water up, and he has a rash on his belly

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

He is all up to date with his needles, has had his tick and flea tablet a month ago, and we have just got back from a road trip yesterday, but he appeared to be ok when we got home

It sounds like this is an allergic reaction- these are often due to insect bites/ stings, food allergies or environmental allergies. We'll often see facial swelling and hives. We can also see vomiting/ diarrhea.

What you can do to manage this as home is give Benadryl at 1-2 mg per lb every 6-8 hours. It usually takes 12-24 hours for signs to fully resolve.

If any airway swelling or labored breathing, then you should get to an ER vet for injectable meds.

I hope this helps, let me know if you have any other questions.
