    Well that was a fun night! Poor Archie couldn't settle all night. He would sleep for 20 minutes and then pace. This morning the swelling has definitely gone down but he is still frantically rubbing his face on everything. I'm calling the vet and taking him in today. Poor guy needs some relief.

    Thanks for the update and I'm on the same page, the vet should be able to get him something stronger - poor guy. I'm glad he's okay though. Give that sweet boy all the hugs, cuddles, treats he wants. hee hee.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    UGH.... good call -- vet can give a shot of Benedyl tat is much stronger and will help bring the swelling down faster

    Prednisone shot for Archie & it's like a miracle cure! He is no longer rubbing at his face at all & he finally seems like he's able to rest comfortably. The vet gave me a bottle of prednisone pills to keep on hand for "when" this happens again.

    Glad he is feeling better! Prednisone is an evil necessity

    Day 3 of the bug bite fiasco and, while the swelling has all gone down, we've still got quite a bit of itching and discomfort going on. The prednisone shot seemed to have worn off around 4:30 yesterday so I gave Archie a prednisone pill as the vet had suggested. Can't say that helped a ton, but at least he had a very restful night's sleep. What would you all recommend I continue with Benadryl and prednisone again today? How much longer will my poor boy be miserable from this darn bug? I'm guessing if he had been bitten in his paw instead of under his eye, he might be in better shape by now. I feel so bad for him.

    I can't remember how long Banks was on the pred for her two bouts with hives.... call the vet office and let them know she is not getting much relief from itching and can you mix the Benedryl with the Pred. I can't remember if we did or not. sorry
