Re: Swollen face and vomiting


Sounds like a reaction to something hun, maybe a wasp or a bee, vet will sort it out am sure


I would be wary of leaving her alone though, just in case it is a reaction and the swelling impedes her airways.. I would get to the vet asap if I was you.
good luck

Re: Swollen face and vomiting


My girl had similar after eating peanut butter treats.
It sounds like an allergic reaction.
Best to stay with her, or even get her checked out, just to be on the safe side.

Re: Swollen face and vomiting


Allergic reaction IMO

I wouldn't leave her alone and I (well if it we're me) would get her to a vet asap, just to be on the safe side, allergic reactions to bee stings etc., can need to be seen to straight away incase it effects the breathing.

Hope she is ok soon

Re: Swollen face and vomiting


We had a similar problem twice with our choc lab, Heathcliff, the first time was only mild but two weeks later very severe .
He looked like he had gone 12 rounds with Mike Tyson. His face was severely swollen and his left eye was completely closed.

The vet confirmed that it was a severe allergic reaction, but to what was anyone's guess. The vet suggested an insect bite, or a tick, but I suspect it was some Cillit Bang floor cleaner, that I had used both days it happened.
The swelling came up very quickly, but the good news is that once he had had the antihistamine injection the swelling did go down fairly quickly, and he has made a complete recovery. It's hard to believe looking at the photo, but he is back to his normal handsome self.
However, at the time, he was very distressed, and I agree with elaineb, don't wait to see the vet. The other problem caused by the swelling was that because his skin was stretched so much, he developed very bad dermatitis around his eyes, which took longer to treat than the swelling.
Good luck.

Re: Swollen face and vomiting


thank you all so much for your comments, the swelling on Missy seems to be more on her muzzle, rather than the face. However i am still going to get her checked put by a vet.
Dogs eh - who'd have em???

Re: Swollen face and vomiting


it was weird, i got back from work and she was fine - no swelling and she was her usual wiggly self. Even ate all her dinner. Did notice a slight red mark on her chin, which I guess is where she was stung/bit. Working at home today so can keep an eye on her but all seems fine, she looks annoyed that I keep checking on her!
