    Always go to the emergency vet immediately when there is facial swelling! There is the danger of the dog's airways swelling, just like in humans.

    Oh absolutely...always go to the vet for something like this. Sounds like a possible allergic reaction. We keep benadryl on hand for things like this in case of bee stings, etc.

    How is he?

    Yeah i thought about the allergic reaction too..thats y i wasnt too worried...but i realised it could be serious so i took him down...its all fine now...they said that even though the swelling looked bad it was just an allergic reaction to probably some bug that stung him or something.. i think it was a bee as i keep seeing 1/2 dead ones outside and the boys just HAVE to put their nose in it! ill have to look out for that benadryl..thanks for that...

    the vet thought it would die down in a couple of hours but said to come back if anything got worse..

    it did die down...and now he's back to normal...thanks everyone

    Yipes!! Poor little guy! I am glad he is all better now though.

    That worries me because Wesley and Cody love to chase moths and my Japanese Plum tree in the back is LOADED with bees right now because it is flowering...
