Brooklyn Gave me quite the Scare (Pics) Reaction

So wanted to come over and share some info about what happened, I have posted this many times, but I have never seen anything like this and Freaked so hoping that someone else may see this and not be as panicked as me if it happens to your baby...

I had to rush Brooklyn to the vet after work because I came home and her eyes were so red and swollen I couldn't even see the pupils..turns out she had type 1 hypersensitivity reaction to a bite or a stin...g (possibly bee or spider) The green stuff is an eye flush the vet put in to check her eyes for scratches and just looking. Her third eyelid was up? I don't remember exactly what he said about that part..but she got a steroid shot and a eye wash..and he sent us home with prednisone and some eye drops that we are to use for the next few days ..so for future reference this is what a bad case of that looks like..Should this ever happen again I now know to get her to the vet but I won't be as panicked.. I could barley function trying to get kid in the car, find my purse, and keys and go..I honestly thought she had a seizure or something and was so panicked I couldn't think straight..so I hope no one comes home to this, but should you by chance go to the vet but stop and breath first..LOL here are the pics and what I came home too and the last picture is her about an hour after we got home from the vets!! Her eyes are still red and a bit swollen but she is much better this morning

The pictures are in order, Pic 1 is when I got home and saw her, the next 5 are at the vet and getting worse it seems, and then the last picture is about an hour after getting home from the vet and having her medicine

Eeeek! No matter how many times I see those pics they still freak me out!

So glad it was just an allergic reaction and that she is better today. Give her extra snuggles :)

Wow I don't blame you at all. If I came home and saw that my heart would drop and then the anxiety would kick in lol. Good thing it wasn't a seizure and just an allergic reaction. Hope for a speedy recovery!!!
