Buddy's a healthy lil guy no medical conditions except he does sneeze after playing grass kinda like a human does when they have allergies Buddy weighs about 17-lbs... His gums are nice and pink hes still playful with a good appetite no vomiting...
His eyes were red and swollen, his lips and paws were swollen and his throat was also bigger than normal. Buddy looks completely normal now Im just wondering what might have been wrong with him...

Friend, it sounds like Buddy was having an allergic reaction; next time this happens or if he is still showing symptoms start him on Benadryl (diphenhydramine) 25mg every 12 hours. You can buy benadryl over the counter in any pharmacy. If he has trouble breathing it would be best to be seen by a vet to get an injection of a corticosteroid. For now you can use benadryl.

My goal is to provide you with excellent service - I hope I've provided the information you were seeking, if you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up questions. Kindly rate me when you are done.
