Multiple bites or bites that penetrate into the mouth cavity need to be evaluated by a physician ...Read more

Good start but: The biggest issue would be whether or not your dog had his shots and if the redness is worsening. It's best to have it looked at if the redness and swelling are worsening or if your dog is not vaccinated against rabies. ...Read more

Do not worry.: If there is no swelling and if the nose does not look out of shape, then it is nothing to worry about. In presence of any of the above, you need to be seen and have xrays to rule out a fracture. ...Read more

37 and allergic to mom's dachshund. Eyes are tearing, red and itch. Nose is runny and sneezing. Hate benadryl, is 25mg hydrox-zine ok?

37 and allergic to mom's dachshund. Eyes are tearing, red and itch. Nose is runny and sneezing. Hate benadryl, is 25mg hydrox-zine ok?

Sure.: Yes, hydroxyzine is fine, but it's fairly similar to Benadryl. You may prefer Zyrtec, Allegra or Claritin, as they won't make you as drowsy. Alaway and Zaditor are two OTC eyedrops that are fast acting and could help as well. You can even take both the eyedrops and Zyrtec, Allegra or Claritin. Hope this helps. ...Read more
