My poor guy! Last night Xander’s face blew up like a blow fish so I put him in the car and we were off to the ER.
Once there, they gave him a shot and an IV of Benadryl and a steroid. Then they had us stay there for awhile afterward to make sure that it was working and not causing another bad reaction.
They let us come home last night and Xan slept all through the night. When he woke up this morning, his face was still swollen but not as bad as it had been the night before.
Today he’s been sleepy (from his meds) so he’s been resting on the couch, snuggled up to me.
What caused this reaction? No idea! The ER vet doesn’t know either. A bug bite? A spider bite? Seasonal allergies like ragweed? I wish I knew.
