    Default Bo's face is swollen again.

    I know I should be thankful that Bo has been healthy and not had many problems but man when he does, it feels like the biggest Set back. Brad gave Bo a bath yesterday, dried him off he was fine. He left for work, I came home, took jim out to potty, came back in, face started to swell?
    He's had two does of Benadryl, 8 hrs apart. Started to look like it was maybe getting better, not so sure now.

    Thoughts? Guess we are going to the vet? Been up since 3am est.... It's 630am.... Could actually cry. Getting ready for work😩😩😩

    Oh poor baby. I think a vet trip is called for...especially if you have given him Benedryl. Dudley's face swelled like that once -- he was allergic to a vaccine he had received. He was covered with hives, but his throat was swelling too. Such a beautiful face too. Sending hugs and good thoughts!

    Did Bo get bit by an insect or do you have any ideas why his face got swollen? I'm sorry for your little guy! Try not to worry (I know it's hard tho)! The benadryl ought to help but if not, then a trip to the vet's office would be best.

    keep us posted!

    Aww poor Bo, looks like he must have gotten bit by something. I don't know about where you live, but here in Canada, the wasps are out in full force. It seems everywhere I go, I find wasps, and they seem to be more aggressive at this time of the year. Could he have gotten bit by a wasp, or some other insect? I agree with others, if Benadryl isn't working, I would take him to the vet, maybe he needs something stronger, like a vaccine of prednisone, or an anti inflammatory.
    I hope Bo feels better soon, and it's nothing too serious. Sending love, hugs and prayers your way for little Bo. Feel better Buddy. Please keep us posted on how he is doing.

    I agree w/Henny... Bo's face looks like when one of my bullies got stung by wasps. I ended up taking them in to the vets to get steroid shots... I would say a vet visit is necessary, his throat might start swelling as well. Keep us posted, and hang in there!!!

    Liz, I'm thinking insect bite too...wasp, ants, spiders?

    Praying now over handsome Bo...sending you a big hug.

    It'll be okay, it just hurts to see them like this...and such
    worry for them. Benedryl should help him, let us know.

    RIP beloved boy.

    This happen to Banks twice and we never found out what casued it.... she was so bad her eyes were shut and she could barely breathe. You may need to get to the vet for a shot of Benedryl and then treat with the pills until he is better.

    Sorry to keep everyone waiting. His face hadn't gone down completely in the morning after we had done two doses of Benadryl so I took off work and we went to the vet. She prescribed some prednisone. He got 1 tab Friday day then another Saturday and he is 100% better!! She wrote for a few more doses in case it happens again in the future!
    Once some of the swelling went down I was able to see a small area that was hard and swollen so I'm thinking he got stung by something.
    We all survived... Even me! here he is looking all handsome!
