Good Morning,
When I got up this morning I noticed my 2.5 year old boxers eye was swollen shut. She was fine when we went to bed last night!
I have a vet appt today due to her itching her ears & shaking her head alot yesterday!
I just feel so bad for her!! Is there anything I can do to sooth her swollen eye until vet time? I took picture, but she wouldn't be still you can kind of see the swelling.
Thanks!
Pam

You can use benadryl but you have to make sure the only thing in it is diphenhydramine. I believe its 1 mg per lb. so a 25 mg pill is good for a 25 lb dog. Also if you are seeing the vet today, you might not want to give her anything until the vet sees her.

The head shake might be Fox Tail's?? Depending on where you live?? And the swollen eye could be a insect bite?? Most likely she put her head ... somewhere, it should not be?? And Matt's advise is sound. Let us know what the Vet say's. Welcome Aboard and sorry it's a bumpy ride so far. :(
