This morning when I got up to feed Whisky I noticed that he looked rather "tired." When he came back to bed after breakfast, the hubby noticed the same thing. It was then that I realized both of his eyes were puffed up. It was a sad sight, but funny at the same time because it looked like he had just gotten up from a tough night of partying with little sleep. The other sad part was realizing it was Memorial Day and any vet visit would be classified as emergency thus costing at least an extra $100!
Luckily, I have discovered a blessing that is the UC Davis Veterinary Clinic. Their emergency staff is super nice and will give you a consult over the phone. I did this once with Louie and they were dead on just from listening to me describe what was going on....with not a dime spent! I called them and explained what was going on with Whisky and they advised that he was probably having an allergic reaction from a possible bite and to give him Benadryl. If it didn't work, then bring him in. I'm happy to say it worked! After just a few hours the puffiness started to disappear and now you can't even tell. Thank heaven for the UC Davis Vet Clinic and for over the counter Benadryl!
