I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on Lunar, please?

You've described a hypersensitivity reaction to an envenomation, vaccine, drug, other chemical, food, and even environmental allergens and variables. In most cases, these pets remiss unaided within 36 hours. An over the counter antihistamine such as Piriton (chlorpheniramine) dosed at 2-8 mg/dog might hasten resolution of the reaction. Severe cases should be addressed with a glucocorticosteroid such as prednisone available through a vet.
