Trip to the Vet's

Well, we had an adventure yesterday. I took Legolas to the vet's for his 16 week shots. Everyone went oooh/aaah and held him and he was happy to see everyone and everything. So they filled him full of shots and sent us home. We fed the dogs their supper, went out to potty, then John and I went out to grab a bite to eat. We got home 45 minutes later, rushed to let the dogs out and then, as I was giving them their treats, I got a good look at Legolas. His little face had swollen up to double its normal size, so much so that his eyes were half closed.

So I am panicking, call our vet's answering service who referred me to the Animal Emergency Clinic. I called them and the first thing the tech asked was "Did he have his shots today?" Turns out he had an allergic reaction. So I took him in to the AEC, they gave him a shot of benedryl and one of a steroid. By the time we got home, the swelling was back to half what it had been.

By this morning he was fine, so all is well. Next time we will know and can give the benedryl beforehand.

Just another doggie adventure!
