Sweet Ham woke up Wednesday with what looked like a bug bite on his face. Benadryl hasn’t been helping. We came home this evening and now the entire right side of his face is swollen! The swollen skin is red. Poor thing! Is there anything I can be doing other than Benadryl to help my little guy? I’m planning to call the vet Monday.

Giving him benadryl will help, but he needs to be seen by an emergency vet ASAP!!! His throat can swell if he is having an allergic reaction, and that could have deadly consequences...
