After dog outside her face is swollen

Wednesday, August 25th, 2010

I have a small 18 month old female collie. Around 20 – 30 mins after taking her out on an overgrown track (grass, nettles etc) her face began to ripple and swelled to more than twice its size within seconds, in front of my eyes.  Her eyes were ‘Chinese’ looking and she basically looked like a Staff Bull Terrier. She did not seem distressed, was eating and drinking as normal and swallowing and barking OK.  The swelling has gone down quite a bit this morning and she is still eating OK.  She has been up this track many times, but not for a couple of weeks due to the overgrowth.

Could this be a bite or sting?



My dog gets swollen a lot on her face. Advice please.

My dog gets swollen a lot on her face. Just this past week under her mouth around her neck was swollen, and it’s sometimes her check, her eye, or lip. We have taken her to the vet and they say it’s an allergic reaction and that we should give her Bendadryl. Which seems to work, but she swells at least twice a month…sometimes more, could this be something else? We have sprayed the house for insects and out, so if she is allergic to something I don’t know what it is?

Let me know what you think.
