Our poor Happy celebrated National Dog Day with an crazy insect bite.
Tonight, we were playing in the garden and Happy suddenly started to roll over and scratch her head against the grass: she was bitten by an insect.
15 minutes later, she was red and swollen. We called the vet and fortunately, we had cortisone pills at home. We gave her the dose prescribed by the vet and waited 15 more minutes. To our relief, she was filling better. (If not, the vet said we would have to take her to their practice for an emergency shot).
3 hours later, she is still swollen and somewhat looks like a chow chow but she is looks much better.
Even when she is sick, Happy is so sweet. She begs for cuddles all the time. She cuddled the whole evening.
