So I noticed on Saturday evening, the skin on Riley's neck seemed droopier than usual. I thought that was really weird, but thought I was being over-cautious. By Sunday, the entire right side of his face was twice the side of the left side. I figured it was probably an allergic reaction, gave him some Benedryl and hoped that it would go away. It didn't. This morning, the swelling spread to his right lips.
Took him to the vet and the vet said he wasn't quite sure what could be causing it, and that it was very unusual. He said we will treat it like an infection first and hope that clears it up. He has another vet appointment in a week, and if the swelling is not gone by then, then we will have to run some more tests.
Has anyone ever dealt with this before? He has no outside lesions, no cuts or marks of any kind. The vet checked his teeth, all around his mouth, checked his right ear. No obvious trauma or issues.
PLEASE send us some good vibes in hopes that it's just a simple infection. Please, please, please. I am trying so hard not to jump to the worst case scenario..
