    Default poppins had a bad bad day

    She is not practically perfect in this picture. Not sure what got her, but 8 hours after 10 mg pred and 2 benadryl later she looks almost normal, but this was ugly. And yes, she is a golden.

    Poor baby!!!! Looks like a vaccine reaction almost! Wasp, bees, or fireants, maybe? Or, do you have any poisonous plants around the place?

    I am thinking a wasp. She was almost back to normal last night, and very slight swelling today.
    She will chase anything
    I actually called my vet, as I have never seen anything like that. She had me give her Pred and benadryl to get the initial shock gone, now benadryl. She said-"does she look like a manatee?" Yep, that would be it!

    Had the same thing on my lab a couple weeks ago, during a HT weekend. she was find, and then i noticed when airing her prior to a serries that she was all swelled up, brows, jaws, her whole face. Don't know what got her, but benadryl fixed her right up. bud

    My clf looked just like that..........found a small copper head in her kennel. Shaved back a spot next to her nose on the jowels and there it was, 2 small spots of blood. Benadryl did the trick.
