In the past week we have taken 5 dogs to the vet for various issues. Jade, our newest addition, needed a recheck on her skin issues and another round of shots, Sadie also needed shots, Boudreaux aka Butterball has some sort of sprain that is causing a limp, and Lady had a very swollen ear flap! In addition, we had a little terrier mix that needed vaccines so she can have a cherry eye corrected. As it turned out, Lady must have been stung. When I found her at 5:30 am this morning, her ear flap was about 2" thick! I immediately gave her benadryl and put her inside in the air conditioning. By the time we got to the vet, the swelling was down quite a bit, but still noticeable. Fortunately, there was no sign of a snake or spider bite. The doc gave her a shot and said to continue the antihistimine until the swelling is gone.
