are animals normally harmed by stings?? i gave him a bath earlier and pulled him inside to eat..hes actually eating right now. his lips are like the width of his skull tho (if you can look at the pics maybe you can imagine how freaky it would look) i tried lookin for a stinger but i cant find it. if its even there.

I would give the emergency vet a call. I don't think it's anything to mess with and it doesn't hurt to call Hope the swelling goes down soon

I think you should call. he could have been stung. or you have said the two dogs have been argueing? figthing? there could be a hard to find puncture as well.

Deep breath One, two and three
Now is his breathing normal?
If so I think it just maybe be a sting
How is he doing now?
You might want give him some benadryl

his breathing is totally normal. and its only his upper muzzle part thats swollen. i think it might have just happened since its so huge! ha. if i could find the digital camera i'd take a pic but my moms lame and moves the camera around and never knows where it is, lol

There isnt always bleeding with a puncture. Athena got one and it didnt bleed at all. Try to get ahold of a vet, if its a sting they can advise you what medication is ok to give. I wouldnt medicate without some vet advice..

I had a boxer that was allergic to bee stings. Not funny...he was in serious condition the day he got stung right on the nose by a bee.

What you are describing sounds like a reaction to some sort-of sting. Please keep an eye on him. My reaction, like yours, was humor at first because his whole muzzle area was so swollen & hard to the touch. He looked ridicilious. Within 15 minutes, I had a 50-lb dog collapse in my house and had to carry him to the car. I raced to vet. with him and they immediately gave him a shot of benadryl. Worked like magic. Figures...I had a Boxer named Buzz that was allergic to bee stings

Try to stay calm. I hope you get a vet to look at him soon.

i have to drive an hour home and unless he stops breathing or collapses (who even knows tho) my mom wouldnt take him to a vet. but this vet is going to call. although sharon (the lady i got him from) said if anything happened to call her and she and her vet friend would take him somewhere..i love them.

Have you checked your dogs gums to see what color they are? Also is your dog licking the area alot? Does your dog seem to notice it or does it seems that he is fine?

to all who wrote! thank you for help/advice! he wasnt licking any area at all..he seemed perfectly normal..i just didnt recognize him his face was so funky! lol im home in chico now. my mom said it looks like the swelling has gone down. i talked to a vet lady and she said not to give him the benedryl (at least to wait) so it looks like hes doing fine..my mom said she'd call me in the morning also..gums were normal pink color..time to go pay attention to my river hes meowing like a crazy man! lol
