I have over thirty years’ experience in veterinary internal medicine, emergency care and ultrasound

I would be delighted to help you out today

If not done so already please provide me your pet’s weight

I am authorized to talk by phone IF you would like to

It does cost more (28.00) but it allows me to provide a more detailed and accurate answer

If you want to text photos directly to me then request phone call

Otherwise attach photos to this link using the “add file”button and make sure to add text with them

Unless YOU request the call you will NOT be charged for one

We are not authorized to write prescriptions

Lets put a cold compress on it for 5 minutes

Give aspirin at 20 mg/kg once now

And Benadryl at 2 mg/kg

That should sort it out

Ok thanks. Is Benadryl available at a chemist?

Yes it is :)

It was my pleasure

I will be sending you a summary of this conversation and a request for update

Please take the time to let me know how things are progressing

I will stay with you till this problem is resolved

Great Paul,no problem. Will the aspirin & Benadryl be ok if she’s had quarter of antihistamine?

Yes, just fine :)

Thanks Paul.
