Lance the crazy boy!

by sands904 on 3/2/2010 at 10:06 PM in Lance

Our day started out like any normal day today. I woke up, let the dogs out, fed them their breakfast and sat down to work while they napped. I worked for a couple of hours and about 9:30 I got up to get some water. All three dogs got up to go outside. I looked at Lance and his face was swollen up. His muzzle was very puffy and his eyes were swollen. Even the top of his head was a bit swollen.

I called the my husband to see if Lance got into anything I didn't know about. He said no so I called the vet immediately. All three dog have been getting home-prepared meals for about 4 or 5 months. I had some left over round steaks from our meal a few days ago so I cut them up and fet them to the dogs for breakfast with some veggies and rice. My first thought is that this was a reaction to the steak which Lance had only had once before. They typically get baked chicken or ground turkey or ground beef baked into meat loaf like meals with veggies. I told the vet about this but he doesn't think that this was a reaction to the food. He believes that Lance got into something which is possible or it was a reaction to a bug bite. Both are possible but Lance has never been one to get into much and there are not too many bugs around Chicago in this weather.

They gave him a shot of benedryl and told me to give him a couple more later that night. The swelling has gone down quite a bit and he is sleeping now so we will see how he looks in the morning. Crazy Boy!!!
