Leo’s Allergic Reaction
One morning this week, Leo scared the daylights out of us. The night before he was totally normal, and when we woke up to take him out the next morning, both of his eyes were swollen almost completely shut. It was terrifying to see him like that. He was breathing fine and acting normal, but his eyes were just SO puffy.
The vet’s office didn’t open for at least another hour so we tried to do a cold compress to bring down the swelling in the meantime. We got to the vet’s office about 20 minutes before it opened, and when it did, they were able to take us in right away. The veterinarian checked him out, gave him a shot to bring down the swelling, and told us it was an allergic reaction and he would be fine (PHEW).
I spent the day with him and his eyes slowly went back to normal. By the next day, Leo was fully back to his routine puppy shenanigans. I just wish I knew what caused the reaction so I can prevent it from happening again.
*These images were taken throughout the day after his vet visit. The first was taken about 30 minutes after the vet. The second was taken a few hours after, and the third was taken that evening.
